Personality Spotlight

Administrations Officer, Yazid applies his learning at Nursing Home (Geylang East) after acquiring a NTUC Health-sponsored degree

Published on 21 Dec 2022

My main job is to manage more than a dozen vendors, while ensuring our staff and residents are well-fed with nutritious meals daily. As I liaise with multiple departments, it is never a dull day at work for me.

I have been with NTUC Health for more than 2 years now. I have a Diploma in Facilities Management so joining the Operations team was an ideal plan.

During the first few months of work, something hilarious happened. I was assisting the storeman to load some goods at Level 7 ward when an elderly resident called the ward staff to ask who I was. He thought that I was a civilian police officer!


I am Yazid aka Yaz or Yayaz. I am the eldest of three children, with my mum being a full-time housewife while my dad is a retiree who works to keep himself occupied.

Another pleasant memory was when I was tasked to organise a staff event which had a “Retro” theme in 2019. We had so much fun dressing up for the event, accompanied with all the food, dancing and gifts. I also have a close friend at work, none other than our driver Fadli. He has been here for almost a year, and his friendship has certainly made work enjoyable.

Looking at how Singapore's population is rapidly ageing, the demand for eldercare is definitely on the rise. As such, I would like to contribute back to the community with what I am doing.

I am currently pursuing a NTUC Health-sponsored degree in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. With better management of the logistics and supply chain, I can create better living conditions for our residents through manpower saving processes and technology - more time can be focused on the residents instead! Another example is how we can use robots to upkeep the home cleanliness.

I also have been actively getting advice on leadership best practices from my superiors so that I am able to lead and manage a team productively.

My ultimate goal in life is to be able to build a career with NTUC Health and at the same time to travel the world.
