The Do-er

Honey-Bees love detail and get things done

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!

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!
