The Do-er

Organisation is my middle name!

If you wanted a group holiday organised, a project manager for group assignments or help with party planning – I am that person! I live by schedules, to do-lists and structure so that every detail, even the smallest, is addressed. You can call me the ‘behind-the-scenes’ person. I'm the oil in the machine, making sure everything runs smoothly and efficiently. Some people find administration boring but I love it and excel at making things happen!
Honey Bees love detail and get things done, which I think is pretty cool.

Your strengths

We all have our own set of strengths. We’ve put together a list of with which we're sure you'll identify. Check them out below!

Attention to detail

My attention to detail is on point; no matter what I’m working on, I’ll spot the mistakes, errors and flaws. You want something submitted perfectly? Borrow my eyes to check it first!

Organisation

I can get things done because I am organised, efficient and structured – I work so well like that!

Process orientation

Give me instructions or a set of tasks, and I can get them done so efficiently it will seem like magic!

Structure

I work best from a structure I know, I’ll get to understand rules and processes and I’m totally fine with repetition. In no time, it becomes part of my nature and I get stuff done!

Things that you can improve on

If only we could be good at everything! Here are a few areas where you could improve:

  • Things that require skills in anything construction – think tradie!
  • Roles that require a high level of human interaction for the benefit of selling a product or service rather than helping an individual
  • Skills or knowledge in maths and science to construct and engineer products or buildings
  • Tasks that purely focus on the use of technology
  • Focusing on information and processes in professional services – think business or education settings
  • Jobs that are seeking to improve the mental or physical health or well-being of others

Don’t feel bad about the points above, you can always improve on this!
 

So, what do you look for in a role?

Roles that will suit you best will include these elements:

  • Processes and structure – the best way you work!
  • The ability to be organised
  • Working with others 
  • Solving and fixing problems
  • Spreadsheets and to-do lists – say no more!
