Leadership Skills, Planning, Time-management Skills

As the technical coordinator of an IT department it has enabled me to develop my leadership, planning and time management skills. As part of the operational team, there is always a risk of not enough time as deadlines need to be kept and met, as a result it helped me to manage myself and plan in advance in order to meet deadlines.

Team player

Extensive group work during University and on the job has broadened my skills as a team player. I have been involved in team sport (Dragon Boat Racing) and have realised the value of co-operation and camaraderie in both an academic and professional environment. As a result, I realise that as a consultant, it is important to have good communication with team members in both a leadership and support staff role.

Problem-Solving and Analytical Skills

Extensive analysis of problems and provision of possible solutions are important skills in any business environment. In the capacity of Technical Coordinator, I assisted the CIO in investigating profit loss due to IT-related issues, through thorough investigation and discussions with developers I was able to determine the source of the problem i.e. human or system related errors. 

Communication and Interpersonal Skills

Previous experience as an auditor and current experience has aided me to communicate with and assist fellow colleagues when a difficulty arises. As the coordinator of the IT department, clear communication between developers, suppliers and the sales team are paramount to solving issues quickly.
