Dear Ladies and Gentleman,
I am an Industrial Master, which is a German Industriemeister Degree, and equals to an NQF Level 8. Additionally, I am a qualified Machine-fitter with a degree level of N5. In my years working in Germany, I gained 7 years of Manager experience, after which I moved to South Africa. I have worked 18 years as a Senior Maintenance Technician in a Sweet Factory, UHT Milk Factory and UHT Juice Factory.
With 12 years’ experience in the German Airforce as an Aircraft Technician on a Master’s Degree Level, I had to have continuous briefings with pilots and receive feedback for specific groups who repaired the jet aircrafts. Following, I acquired 7 years’ experience as a Manager in a rigging company, providing feedback on maintenance procedures to companies, regarding forms and records, leading a team towards high performance, and controlling the company's budget. I then moved forward into the FMCG Industry, in which I worked as a Senior Technician for 18 years, inspiring, motivating, training and guiding others towards the goals of the company on the high-volume production lines. Skills that I have acquired throughout my working years and are in need to be applied daily regard repairs, maintenance and inspection processes, identifying and solving problems to improve plant performance, ensuring machine downtime to a minimum and cost-saving orientated budgeting. An example of this can be seen on the production line TBA19 Tetra, which had an efficiency level of 60%, and after efficiently working on it, I raised to 90%.
