- Good problem-solving skills
- Proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint
- A positive and professional attitude
The professional who fits well in our firm:
- Manages commitments (including daily ones) in ways that do not interfere with attending meetings or working towards tight deadlines.
- Mixes easily with people of diverse backgrounds
- Is resourceful (i.e. does not need high maintenance)
- Is fluent in their core work, and does not need much supervision
- Is willing to be supervised if their competency is low in a particular area, or if the item at hand is critical to the organisation
- Follows company SOPs
- Handles fast-paced changes in role or scope of work. (If you prefer to work at a steady, consistent pace – nothing wrong with that – we’re not the right organisation for you).
Some of our people-centred practices:
- Open-book policy: All finances are disclosed, including salaries.
- 5-day week. Everyone has been working from home since March 2021 and this will probably continue post-pandemic.
- 'Reduced-hours full-timer' option for staff who cannot commit to a 40-45 hour week.
- Types of leave: Annual, maternity, paternity, celebration, community service, retreat, care giving, and study leave. No medical certificate is required for short-duration sick leave.
- Everyone on first-name basis.
- Whenever possible, we re-design jobs to fit a person's talents and professional goals.
- We have a no-retrenchment practice (unless totally unavoidable). The pandemic has not led to any retrenchments. However, staff have been let go because of integrity or performance issues.
Some complaints we have heard about our practices and policies:
- There’s lifting bags down two flights of stairs.
- During crunch times the work-week might stretch to 50 hours or more, resulting in late nights or lost weekends. This can happen several times each quarter.
- New hires sometimes have lots of ideas on how to change things, but many of these are deemed unsuitable by senior management. It can be frustrating.
