New Appointment at School of Laboratory Medicine and Medical Sciences
The School of Laboratory Medicine and Medical Sciences (LMMS) has appointed Ms Ntokozo Mngadi as its new Principal Programme Officer (PPO).
Mngadi joined the School at the beginning of January this year after launching her administrative career at the University of the Witwatersrand where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Industrial Psychology and Media.
She worked at Wits starting as Systems Administrator and then moving up the ranks before resigning from a senior administration post to join UKZN.
Mngadi said she loved working with students and when she saw the Principal Programme Officer vacancy advertised at UKZN, she knew it was time to return to her home province and serve the community that shaped her.
‘I had been applying for jobs at UKZN and when I saw the PPO post I thought this was me. I was excited and nervous at the same time when I was told I had been shortlisted.’
Mngadi said she received a warm welcome from fellow PPO Ms Nonhlahla Mqadi of the School of Clinical Medicine as well as her inspirational Manager, Mr Mark Tufts, who was named one of UKZN’s Distinguished Teachers in 2011.
Mngadi, who enjoys reading and jogging in her spare time, said she looked forward to working at the School.
