My personality can be classified as that of an extrovert. I am easy to get along with and
consider others. I am trusting and trustworthy. I am loyal and tend to the interests of
those associated to me.
My years spent in the South African Police Force as firstly a technician, then a Detective
and finally as an Undercover Field Operative, enabled me to accumulate vast experience
in many fields. This experience also serves me well when dealing with people and
enables me to work and get along with people of all races and walks of life. I have been
exposed to many life threatening circumstances and situations. Because of this, I am
able to cope in stressful situations and maintain a level head in extreme situations or
I spent the majority of my police career as an undercover operative and therefore
understand confidentiality and discretion.
Coming from a police background I am accustomed to rules and regulations and adhere
to them. I have a strict code of ethics and cannot tolerate bribery or corruption of any
kind. I am self-disciplined and function well with no supervision. I have been subjected
to extensive training ranging from specialised weaponry, first aid on infants and
specialised investigations to street survival skills, photography and specialised
investigations. I am more than adequately equipped for my duties as a Clerk of Works.
I have a very good understanding of people and body language and have completed
courses on interviewing, interrogation and psychological profiling. I can quickly
establish whether the truth is being told by someone or not. I use this experience in the
execution of my duties as a Clerk of Works, whether investigating irregularities, an
incident or during on-site supervision. I am strict but always endeavor to remain fair
and objective. I try to make allowances for an explanation when coming across an
irregularity, defect, mistake or whatever the case may be.
