Keep on knocking on doors!!

8 Mar,2016Profiles

26 year old Thulasizwe Mthembu is a former Working on Fire participant from the Manzingwenya base in KwaZulu-Natal, who was recently employed at the Mseleni Hospital as a General Order in the waste section.

“I joined WoF in 2014. I was very excited to land the job, I volunteered to be a Base Communications Representative as I was eager to use every opportunity I got within the organisation.”

Thulasizwe says he learnt a lot from WoF and that’s what got him this current job. “Discipline is very important in any job environment and WoF taught me to work under difficult circumstances. I also obtained different certificates without paying and for that I am very appreciative to WoF,” he said.

Thulasizwe says these assisted him in getting hired because the hospital wanted someone who has experience in fire fighting. ”I dispose of harmful and dangerous hospital waste and being a qualified first aider was one of the reasons I got the job. I have more free time to pursue my dreams in studying law.”

“I encourage my ex-colleagues to make use of any chance they get from the company and keep on knocking at other doors,” said Thulasizwe.
