Senior Administrative Officer | Cape Town, Western Cape | 07 Nov 2016
excellent workplace with high ethics and standards
Early in the morning, before starting time everyone will greet each other. The work-ethic was very high, everybody start on time and push for the highest level of production. We have set days and time for staff meetings. The supervisor would enquire now and then on difficult tasks, in order to assist. The co-workers are all very friendly and helpful. We all were subject to strict turn-around times for task -completion. The hardest part of the job was to deal with difficult clients, who appears to be unreasonable. I managed to exercise great patience and personal care to clarify any misunderstandings with clients. The most enjoyable part of the job was when clients understood policies, work processes and procedures and expressed satisfaction afterwards.

What are the perks offered by Western Cape Government?
Asked 28 May 2018
We have a staff camp every term given off every weekend daily hours are quite reasonable i can study while i work
Answered 07 May 2019
The perks are the basics, that would be the pension, optional medical aid where the employer pays a % (Gems is not that great), you would have to way up the pro's and con's and the perks are really dependant on what you value in a business. I would move for no pension and medical aid if I was reassured a quality healthy company culture and a productive innovative environment that takes into account succession planning. Which Government does not.
