Africa Media, one of the two owners of Sheqafrica.com and other online magazines, have appointed Jessica van Zyl as its new Editor-in-Chief effective from 4 March 2019.
Jessica studied Journalism at Howard College in KZN and brings 12 years of experience to the scene. In addition, she also holds a NEBOSH IGC and a few NQF short courses in OHS. She was formerly employed as an IT Project Manager for Africa Media, responsible for ICT project development.
One of Jessica’s major challenges is to set up the OHS Portal for Sheqafrica.co.za, which will purely focus on the South African OHS Act and its application and to focus on Transformation in SHEQ in SA.
“I am happy to be part of the team. I have been following Sheqafrica.com since 2010 and it is an awesome publication for the SHEQ industry. I have a great task ahead of my, and big shoes to fill, but I am sure the South African readers will enjoy it as much as they did up to now.” Van Zyl said during her interview.
She was one of 15 candidates shortlisted for an internally sourced vacancy.
