WELCOME TO NAS
Meet Mr Manfred Molomo, Faculty Manager in the Dean’s Office in the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (NAS), who was appointed to NAS in June this year.
Find out more about him.
Q: What do you do at NAS?
A: As an all-rounder, I provide high-level operational support to the Dean, NAS Exco, HoDs and all NAS staff by shaping administrative solutions that support the academic project and the Faculty strategic plan.
Q: As a new staff member in NAS, what stands out for you?
A: NAS is the leading faculty in terms of the number of research outputs produced. It speaks of the quality of our staff and the students in NAS. We want to keep pushing back the frontiers of knowledge. I see my role as an enabler of this.
Q: What qualities do you think a good employee should have to be successful?
A: I believe that success is the outcome of hard work, integrity and fun. People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
Q: What is your life philosophy? What do you believe?
A: Try and leave this world a little better than you found it.
Q: Where were you previously employed?
A: I have been at UP for the past two and a half years. Before coming to NAS, I was a Manager in the Department of Research and Innovation and the Faculty of Law.
