Laura Lesley

It has been a great experience working at Close the Gap, Circular Economy Hub being part of a great company that believes and is dedicated to bridge the access to digital solutions in developing and emerging countries. 

Working as an intern to Close the Gap, Circular Economy Hub, has served me with very different challenges each day which has enabled me to advance my skills and knowledge on warehousing, computer hardware maintenance, and support.

During this internship, I acquired skills from different fields enabling me to have a better understanding on Inventory and sales, inventory system and its operability, repair of faulty desktop and laptops, installation and activation of computer software, computer maintenance and support, testing, and sorting of monitors, desktops and laptops depending on their specifications and software troubleshooting.  

I got to learn a lot around warehousing and computer hardware and the importance of a good warehousing system that enables smooth day-to-day operations in the warehouse. Great teamwork and conducive and safe working environment adhering to all the COVID-19 health regulations. 

I would like to acknowledge the Manager, Mr. Timothy Wachira, warehouse supervisor, Norman, and my team Peter and Alex for their continuous contribution and support during the internship.
