CAREER SUMMARY: I have extensive hands-on experience in the implementation and development of E2E Oracle HRMS business suite of modules, inclusive of release 12.1.2. I have been installing and troubleshooting HRMS modules in excess of a decade with success, having an excellent comprehension of the whole project life-cycle, from inception to implementation and customer acceptance. This has included (but not limited to) quality and creative architecture, sound support for complex issues (incl. of HR policy and procedures), training and added-value for the ad-hoc clients. This has further enabled me to focus on my progressive management style which has strong emphasis on team work and relationship building (inclusive of empowerment, effective time usage and budget control). This also has demonstrated my leadership through capability in driving such project excellence and meetings goals and objectives.

I am accustomed to fast-paced and deadline priority-driven projects, which have included muti-tasking and intelligent development, vision and innovation, in addition to adopting a synergistic approach to customer relationships as well as team building - all this has led to a challenge that I enjoy, which has enabled me to take pride and passion within my work accomplishments.

I am an energetic self-starter with excellent analytical, organisational and communication skills - these tools have provided me with an excellent understanding of client requirements.

I have a wide range of experience within the analysis and re-engineering of business processes. I deliver quality value by streamlining business and system processes through effective out-of-the-box functional development and thought.

I have exposure to leading edge technology software, specifically within the Oracle orb, as well as broad experience dealing within a variety of environmental sectors. My ongoing Unisa studies within the HR Management discipline equip me well.
