Job history at Acacia
I began working at the company nearly 9 years ago in November 2005. In that time I've worked my way up from a Bi-Lingual Translator, through the Training and Development team in the then Kahama Mining Company Limited, which is now called Bulyanhulu Gold Mine to now being the Human Capital Development Section Leader at North Mara Gold Mine.
I am well versed in a number of aspects in the mining industry and have gained solid experience in training, learning and development, succession planning, capacity building and talent management.
I’ve received tremendous support from the Company and valuable training on site which included on-the-job training, coaching and overseas training, whereby I was given the opportunity to study at the University of Cape Town and successfully completed the Programme in Business Improvement - Associate in Management (PBI AIM).
My primary role for the last year has been managing the Learning and Development Department focusing on Capacity Building and Localisation Succession Planning at the North Mara Gold Mine. We are developing the capability of high potential team members at all levels, through the provision of the required training and development.
I have also played an active role in the Talent Management Programme, which is one of the pillars of success for the Company. Through this process we ensure that we identify and develop the right talent to achieve our current and future business objectives.
Other key projects that I am involved in include managing the Integrated Mining Technical Training (IMTT) to support our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives by sponsoring youths from the villages surrounding our mine site through training in various trades.
Why work for Acacia?
In my view, the main reason to join the Company is the chance to work on great projects, the opportunity to get excellent training and learning opportunities and build your career with the Company. The exposure to highly skilled and experienced team members from all around the world further enriches one’s experience and growth and the interaction with management and team members from other departments enables one to learn more about the business every day.
Acacia is a world class company and the experience of working here will be valuable to anyone, no matter what kind of role they are in. Each team member’s talents are valued and are further enhanced to enable them to reach their maximum potential. At Acacia, the sky is the limit.
