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
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!
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.
