Experience

  • Self employed

    April 2019 - at Present

    Province of KwaZulu-Natal

    I had a 6 month restraint of trade from manufacturing from my previous employer. I started this one man company to consult to companies on waste, waste management and cost saving. it is a part time function, but it's very erratic, the economy doesn't allow companies to spend as freely even though the service I provide would free up money justifying the cost. I am looking for stability again.
