Cecile Bolivar, Payroll Administrator Cecile started in 1996 with North Seas Marine Services, and works in the V.Group Manila office. "I handle the allotments for NSMS. I'm the one who recieves all the allotees (seafarers) and does all the things to prepare their payments with the bank so the allotees can get their money. I manage various kinds of payroll accounts functions." "I'm a very jolly person. I always smile whenever I have my seafarers in front of me. I don't want him to leave wihout a smile on his face. Everytime the seafarers come to the office I ask them to save for themselves - especially the younger seafarers. I always tell them to make sure they are saving. Money doesn't bring happiness - friends and family is the most important thing, but you need to save something to be stable. "My favourite part of my job is that I can make friends with my allottees and that I can have satisfaction that I'm doing a good job. It's important to me to do my job well and always share a smile, because when you smile you gain a younger face, haha! "V.Ships are very good, I'm very happy here. It's a good environment and I get along with everyone."
