The culture is very positive and it is a fun environment
My current role of responsibility responsible is managing, growing, and providing solutions for a large diverse client base in Gauteng.
On a given day, during the early hours you will find me speaking to the clients, finding out – proactively – what their priorities are for the week, communicate the clients’ needs and organizing my schedule around the client’s priorities. I do this on Monday so that the rest of the week is well organized and I can effectively use my time in exceeding client’s expectations and avoid Friday evening surprises. Rest of the week goes in delivering the product(s), updating the status with the client, answering emails and calls.
I have learnt that relationships are important working together with people who inspire me, challenge me and constantly teach me new things every day. Having great Networks encourages strong support systems. The more you build close connections with people you admire and trust, the more successful you will be.
Find small wins in every day - You will always have good days and bad days, but it is important to identify something every day that you see as a win. Focusing on the positives will help you stay confident, balanced, and motivated and it will keep you in good spirit.
Go the extra mile for your teammate - “Be a builder, not a climber,” and it really resonated with me. Since then, I have been passionate about building success with my team, rather than trying to climb up the ladder alone. If you are kind and genuine
Productive and learned alot as well as a great team
A typical day at the office would start of with a meeting with my administration team with regard to the reception area as well as filling of the case files the investigators delivered to them. After this I will start reading through the investigators reports submitted to me for vetting.
Once vetting or corrections are made on the reports I will then distribute it to the relevant parties, such as the branch managers, reporting managers an where needed to the Head of the Risk department.
My manager will be calling in between all the vetting of reports for things she needs to be done. Visitors will also come for meetings and the receptionist will call me to fetch them at the front area.
Some of the investigators will not be at the desks and I will be answering their calls and taking messages.
Should there be interviews scheduled for my boss, i will receive the candidates and take them to the interview room.
Should a new appointee start work on the day, I will need to collect him from the main reception and take him or her through the building, and introduce him or her to person they will directly deal with.
I will then go through my emails again and ensure that all emails are answered as well as ensure that my boss gets her meetings on time. At times she would not respond to my sms messages, and I will have to call her out of her the meeting should there be an overrun.
I enjoyed working with all the teams and environments I have been in, and believe that

A typical day for me I need to plan and prioritise what’s important and urgent on my desk, to interact with internal and external clients. Most importantly to be able to have excellent time management and the ability to solve problems.
My current portfolio is mainly focused on residential developments so I have gained exceptional knowledge regarding the business.
Management serves as a support structure to the subordinates, we expected to work as independently as we can on performing our day to day tasks. Most of our work requires approval by management such as payments to be released and drafted legal documents to be checked and signed by management.
Co-workers, we required to work closely as team members, we have a buddy systems in place. We individually manager our own portfolios but we work closely together as buddies and through this we build strong teamwork and relationships.
Hardest part of my job is working hard on something and due to internal hurdles I cannot deliver service to my clients.
We have flexi hours - start work early leave early or start work late and leave late. I start work at 9 and work till late. I cannot leave my desk until I'm happy that all that I needed to do is done. This allows me to plan around my 'work life balance" I get to spend the mornings with my family and see my child school and when I get to work I can work until required to. For me it works out. We also have a lot of social events so we work hard and play hard!
