Dear Sir/Madam, 

I am currently completing my third and final academic year towards a Diploma in Human Resource Management at Business Management Training College of South Africa.

I have come to love working with people, and coupled with a strong administrative background as well as my studies I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to  assist with the human resources function at your firm. 

My best value proposition is that I am a hard worker who brings enthusiasm and professionalism to any team I am part of.  Good interpersonal skills allow me to effectively communicate with a wide variety of people, work well in a team and solve problems quickly. 

I believe I am a positive person who is mature, dynamic and can cope well when the going gets tough.Clients and colleagues have described me as friendly and trustworthy.

I hold a valid code B driver's licence and I am also part of the executive committee of Toastmasters International, Tarentaal Club in Windhoek.  

Your time and consideration will be much appreciated!


Thank You & Kind Regards,

Donata van Rooyen
