Meet Consie Williams, Customs Department
Balancing life between the precision of accounting and the enjoyment of family life, Ms Consie Williams joined the civil service to: "Take advantage of the opportunities to grow, the diverse job possibilities, and the strong focus on continuing education."
One of the newest cashiers to don the Customs Department uniform, she has spent the past six years in private-sector accounting, and welcomes the opportunity to share - and develop - her skills in the public service.
The very family-oriented young lady enjoys spending quality time with her children, and especially enjoys baking and sushi.
Ms Williams' plan for the future: "To take advantage of Civil Service College training, and to continue to continue to practice accounting within government - it doesn't matter which section!"
Ms Williams was part of a group of civil service recruits who recently attended mandatory orientation training to familiarise them with them with organisational structure and legal principles which exist in government.
The 32 participants ranged from the Clerk of Courts to other recent hires in areas such as sports, counselling and policing.
The public service employees heard from officials including His Excellency the Governor, Mr. Duncan Taylor, CBE; Deputy Governor Franz Manderson, Cert. Hon, JP; and Chief Officer in the Portfolio of the Civil Service, Ms. Gloria McField-Nixon.
The lectures, discussions and video presentations covered areas such as employment law, performance management and training, as well as staff benefits. Attendees were also briefed on their obligations under the Anti-Corruption Law, FOI, Gender Equality Law and the forthcoming Bill of Rights.
Last month, 27 new employees attended the first orientation to be held in recent years. These sessions are now taking place on a monthly basis.
