My work experience has made me come to appreciate different cultural values and to respect diversity. Difficult working conditions and challenging competing priorities have enabled me to improve my analytical and organizational skills. Having been in charge of Common services unit (Transport, Protocol, and Travel) serving close to 200 staff. My supervision of a total of 13 drivers and two office assistants, contributed to my experience in handling fellow colleagues at work and in harmonizing different output areas to build towards a broad central objective of the office as a whole. I was focal point for HR functions for the programme unit and I served as a member of the Contracts Review Panel for UNDP in recruitment of positions equal to and below my level of contract. Both tasks required utmost confidentiality and professionalism.
My experience in programme support tasks gave me an insight on fostering better relations between Operations and Programme teams and an opportunity to work closely with the senior management in a rotational capacity as Secretary to the Senior Management Team. My last two positions gave me an opportunity to work as focal point to the HR Specialist maintaining staff monthly attendance sheets and field mission coordination with flight, accommodation and general transport issues. I served as security focal point for travel of office staff under my unit in liaising with UN Department of Security to ensure staff travels were cleared and supported where need be. Planning and organizing my time has been priority given the varied tasks that have been expected of me between senior management, project and programme responsibilities and external client interactions.
My positions have placed me in contact with both internal and external clients to the organization and have helped me to appreciate the importance of maintaining a positive image of my organization to outsiders while balancing effective implementation reporting and provision of services to fellow staff members.
I am a fast and determined learner, with a keen eye for self development and I should be very grateful for the opportunity to progress and to grow in service in your organization.
I am enthusiastic in working with and for children. Currently, I am the patron of ‘Young Missionary Children’ in my Parish. I have also volunteered with Mother Teresa Children home and National Catholic Youth centre as a peer counselor.
I posses strong advanced computer proficiencies following professional training from different recognized computer colleges coupled with over 14years on-job experience.
It will be my privilege to work with STC when an opportunity arises.
