TESTIMONIALS

The environment is so diverse

I have worked at South Africa Lodge as an Office Manager for 6,5 years. The thing I love most about my job is that it is different every day in a busy environment. I feel that I make a difference to assist the staff with their needs as well as handling business matters with the suppliers/contractors the best I can. The environment is so diverse and we have a great staff team and great residents. I take pleasure in doing my job to the best of my ability and the management team are fair and help to empower me to be the best I can, and in turn, I do the same to my staff teams.

Very supportive company

I have been working at South Africa Lodge as a carer then laundry staff for 17, 5 years.

The thing I love most about my job is that I have a great team, without them I couldn’t do my job. The company is great to work for, very supportive, and we can all have a good laugh. I feel that I make a difference by ensuring my team have high standards of work. The most satisfying element of my job is knowing that our residents look the best they can. I feel proud because we all strive to make the residents’ life as happy and as caring as we can. I like working at South Africa Lodge because we are all treated the same no matter what our job is.
