Zama Mtimkulu curriculum vitae



I have completed my 3-year degree in Industrial & Applied Biotechnology and an honours degree in Microbiology. I have 3 years experience with 1 year as a laboratory demonstrator at University of KwaZulu-Natal and 2 years as a Junior Quality Assurance Technologist at Rhodes Food Group 

My experience has equipped me with the following skillset

  • HACCP, Food safety 
  • Internal and external audits
  • Environmental management
  • Quality related systems (Pest control, water treatment, thermal processing)
  • Customer complaint investigating and report writing
  • SOP reviewing and writing
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Problem solving, Analytical work, Critical thinking
  • Microsoft skills 
  • Communication


Having studied and worked in different cities and provinces has taught me teamwork, understanding people from various backgrounds, communication skills and being multi-dimensional. Thus, I believe I possess the required skills and knowledge to be an asset to any organisation and contribute meaningfully to the achievement of company objectives and goals.  

My research and experience have prepared me to work independently without constant supervision whilst maintaining a high degree of integrity, quality work and pay close attention to detail.

It has been an age-long ambition of mine to make a meaningful contribution to science, to people’s lives, leave the world a better place than what I found it to be. Hence I am eager to migrate into the health or pharmaceutical industry.
