OfW Member CV

Summary

I have been a team leader at the Shoprite/Checkers warehouse in Brackenfell after starting out as a checker. I have varied experience and feel capable of taking on a wide variety of roles in warehousing as well as customer-facing ones. I have been the workaholic type since i was in school. I started working in grade 9 as a seasonal worker sorting wool in the local sheep shearing shed. I also volunteered at school to be trained and to work in HIV/AIDS awareness. I am also the coach in our local club that won many tittles in our local league. I serve on the ward committee in the safety and security sector under City of Cape Town ward 40 Guguletu Section 3.
