Objective


I am herewith forwarding my CV for your attention and perusal in the hope of finding suitable employment within your organization.



I was a member of the Bomb Squad of the South African Police Service for 18 years and instructor for 5 years.



After I left the South African Police Service I did several international contracts regarding IED/EOD training for foreign Military Forces as well as Demining contracts for several demining companies.



During these contracts I was employed as Instructor, Project Manager and Supervisor and had to deal with operations, management and supervising of several teams.



I also had to liaise with international institutions like the UN, Military and Police Forces and local communities.



Additional tasks also include management of finances, logistics, personnel issues and reporting to the UN and superiors.
