A typical day at work included filling, sending company documents for approval by authorized signatories, receiving purchase requests, sourcing for quotations, expediting, issuing of stores, receiving goods. The experience helped in building a procurement foundation in a typical mining industry; the need for safety and health at the workplace, the need to uphold good corporate governance, the importance of company's reporting structure. I reported to the Buyers and Stores Controller who reported to the Procurement Manager. The Procurement Management reported to the Plant Manager, who in turn reported to the Chief Executive Officer. The workplace culture included strong leadership, customer service excellence, innovation, employee engagement. The hardest part of the job was fear of making mistakes as an Intern. The most enjoyable part was knowing mistakes were part of the learning process.
