About me

Driven by a passion to creatively communicate and express ideas through photography, design and film. I am an innovative learner of those around me but a critical out-doer of oneself. I believe in respect for others but fully appreciate my own uniqueness. Ambitions: With a (graphic) design background I have undertaken courses in innovation and creative thinking as I would like to be an entrepreneurial film director in Africa in the next five years. Within the decade I would like to establish a preferred film and production institute which specializes in broadcasting up and coming African entrepreneurs. Also as a writer, I see the need for their stories to be expertly & innovatively told.

Recruitment Coordinator

Feb 2009 - Dec 2009
  • Zimbabwe
  • Full Time

It has a very good reputation for delivering the best candidates to reputable clients, whilst doing this in the homeliest manner. As the recruitment coordinator, I made sure that every process was coordinated precisely, with in-depth logging and confirmation. I linked receipt of job specifications to short listing, contacting of suitable candidates, all the way until the candidate is placed. I also conducted interviews face to face and over the phone.

2008

IT Attaché

Zimpapers (The Herald)

Mar 2008 - Nov 2008
  • Zimbabwe
  • Internship
  • IT, Networking; User Support, Maintenance and Installations My vocation consisted of supporting users on the network, loading software on machines, and performing regular maintenance throughout the various departments of Zimpapers. I was also involved in network installations and software development as I interfaced sales data between various departments. In retrospect, this apprenticeship allowed me the opportunity to be involved in printing press and understand its standards and applications. Even as I work in a technology driven organization, I see the benefit of having that as part of my background.
