About Matteus van der Westhuizen:

Actions speak louder than words.

Experience

I have excellent computer skills with the ability to create logs and keep accurate records of all merchandise.

I know how to read invoices and how to match the invoice with the merchandise to ensure the proper items are received. I have the computer knowledge to use any inventory system and most any program or software associated with this job. I am physically fit and able to perform all the physical activities associated with being a Stock Controller.

My experience includes supervising the purchases made by the company to ensure they are receiving the best quality for the best price. It is also my job to approve invoices and payments made to vendors and to handle and resolve any issues associated with business expenses. Booking couriers and making sure parcels arrive at the relevant location.

I possess excellent decision-making skills and the ability to do the research needed to obtain the best price for all the purchases made but especially for any expensive or difficult purchases. I have outstanding verbal and written communication skills and negotiation skills with the ability to create and maintain a great working relationship with suppliers and vendors.
