Although I have not worked as Laboratory Technician in the Mining Industry, I have had to take and prepare samples and record results. As a Secondary Science Teacher and prior to that as a Laboratory Technician, I was required to enter data, handle samples, prepare and use various chemicals in my daily work. In my current position I am already working a shift roster and are at times required to collect and conduct simple analysis on various samples. I hold a current Drivers Licence and reliable transport and would only need to give my current employer one fortnight notice. I am a highly motivated and organised individual who is sincere, reliable and prepared to deal with difficult issues. Some of my most effective working skills include my ability to deal with pressure and multi-task with a positive and flexible attitude and turning a hand to any new challenge. I take pride in my ability to conduct all relationships in a highly professional and ethical manner whilst displaying my enjoyment of people and the work in which I am involved. A proactive team member who can also work independently, I always aim to go above and beyond my set duties to ensure the best is in place to allow the organisation to function as efficiently as possible In all my roles, I am accustomed to working in an environment where accuracy and attention to detail are essential. These positions have required a high degree of professionalism, maturity, loyalty, and the ability to communicate effectively at all levels. I enjoy structure in my daily routine, however, I am able to adapt to, implement and embrace change. My approach to tasks is methodical and I possess an analytical mind for problem solving.
