Work History

Sales Manager

Empire International

February 2013 - August 2013

I wanted to work in another field that stimulates my interests but still allowed
me to work with customers and clients. My duties involved; organising road
trips, sales, managing my team to reach weekly target sales, work on a
commission basis and follow up on referrals.

● No 1 in my Sales Division in South Africa for two months running


Rocco Forté Hotel (5 Star)

September 2012 - December 2012

While working at the Living Room, I was afforded the opportunity to help open
this hotel and work there as a Supervisor for a premium cocktail lounge.
Through this experience I learned a lot about myself and dealing with very high
end clientele.

Hostess & Waitress ­ Promoted to Manager in 2011

Living Room, Nightclub

March 2010 - February 2013

I started at Living Room as a hostess & waitress and soon got promoted to a Supervisor. After exceeding in my duties I was promoted to General
Manager. My duties included: Serving customers, taking stock, hiring and training staff, upkeep of all standards, bookings and guest list, event
coordinating etc.

Through gaining this experience at Living Room, I was able to go to Abu
Dhabi in Dubai to open a new 5 Star Hotel. This gave me experience
abroad, working with the highest possible standards in the service industry.
