What's happening in your CID?
The age old expression 'a chain is only as strong as its weakest link' has proven to be true time and time again, often to the detriment of an entire team. It is therefore with much appreciation that we consider our CID team and our partners who are made up of a skilled, hard-working and passionate individuals.
Since the GP CID's inception in 2001 we have had minimal staff and management changes. We would like to attribute this is to job satisfaction amongst team members, with further evidence of fulfilment portrayed by the level of loyalty, hard work and service delivery received.
Our Security Manager, Marius Swanepoel has been with us for five years and is a prime example of a passionate, hard working team member whose drive strengthens and motivates those he provides leadership to.
As time goes on, a team often has to adapt or 're-group' to overcome challenges and changes within its environment. As a CID we are committed to continuously expand our horizons and increase our level of service. We are therefore excited about our new partnership with Vetus Schola and look forward to impacting and improving our area over the coming months.
