Nilson Kauraisa (32) was born and raised in Namibia. His first permanent job was at MCN and he’s been with the company for nine years. Kauraisa started as a Customer Care Agent in January 2012 and moved to the Finance department in December 2012 as an Accounts Receivable Assistant Accountant. He has since stepped up to the role of a Treasury Accountant and Supervisor.

His job description consists of performing bank reconciliations and checking payment allocations, implementing new payment platforms and managing the relationship with third-party vendors.

“I maintain a close relationship with banks and supervise Accounts Receivable Assistants,” he says. One of his biggest challenges in his career includes making the customer experience as effortless and convenient as possible. With system downtime and timeouts, sometimes it makes it very difficult to accomplish this,” he adds.

He is proud of his career milestones which involves implementing new payment platforms and providing customers with the opportunity to make their DStv and GOtv payments as seamless as possible.

When he is not working the books, he loves spending time with his family. “What inspires me is knowing that I did a great job and taking care of my wife and children,” he says.

The advice would he would give to young people out there is to make every moment count by doing what makes them happy.

“You should not sleep on an opportunity to do something you are passionate about, and do not let fear keep you from achieving your dreams,” Kauraisa adds. He certainly hasn’t, with plans to become a Financial Manager in future.

For those who may not know, one thing he wishes he knew how to do is playing a musical instrument, particularly the guitar or saxophone, as he loves music.

When asked by Careers what the best phase in his life has been, Kauraisa replied that each day is a blessing. “I learn something new every day and that is the best I could ever ask for.”
