Mankayi - Lab Analyst - Vosloorus, South Africa

Nombulelo Mankayi

Vosloorus, South Africa


I have worked in FMCG manufacturing industry as lab analyst and due to hard working, I was promoted to quality junior management levels. As an analyst, I have tested, approved raw materials, and finished goods using basic lab wet chemistry instrumentation, and monitoring its packaging. For administrative portion of my duties, I was involved in quality investigations, non-conformances as well as trouble shooting sessions. I was also part of the department continuous improvement process thru its 5S program. I was running a lab which involved management of lab personnel, internal & external customers, chemicals and instruments ordering and validations, documents archiving, retention samples, standards/reference samples monitoring as well as lab waste control. I was also involved in writing, updating test reports as well as writing testing procedures (SOPs). As part of my quality continuous improvement plan, I am studying business management & administration as I like to be part of good quality challenges.
I hope that my work experience and the training, from any level, that I can gain working for your company can help us meet your expectations, goals and targets.
I am a flexible, active team player, who pay attention to details and a quick learner.
