We are one of the largest privately owned conglomerates in the country. Our reach expands from manufacturing to leisure; from media to IT to infrastructure. We are a company at the forefront of innovation and we have the track record to prove it. But most importantly we know that it is our employees who have given us the impetus and courage to be different.
It was always a childhood dream of mine to join News 1st so that I could pursue my passion for journalism. At a young age, I was given the opportunity to achieve that dream. Six years later, I’m heading my own team under the guidance of some of the industry’s greats. What I’ve found here is not just a great workplace but one that values and invests in me as well.

It's a very high energy environment. The market dynamics are ever-changing and you have to be constantly thinking on your feet! As a company, we swiftly adapt to the changes and are always trying to be ahead of the curve, whether it’s in what we’re marketing or how we go about it. So, my 2 years here has given me a one-of-a-kind experience, that I know will be the foundation for a long and prosperous career.

My first time behind the camera was nerve-racking; but my peers and supervisors were so encouraging and there have been lots of great training opportunities that have helped hone my skills and become the producer I am today. Being good at something isn’t just about talent, you need disciplined practice to achieve perfection and CMG has played an essential role in helping me develop my skills. All of this has given me the unbelievable opportunity to direct world-renowned television franchises such as the Voice and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

I was pursuing my degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering when I got the opportunity to intern at Tuffline. As a pleasant surprise I was offered a full-time position soon after. This was during a period when I wasn’t sure about what I wanted to do in life. But, at Tuffline I found my inner calling for product design. The supportive environment provided by my supervisors enabled me to learn a lot and help me reach my true potential. Today I'm on the management track, heading the production team which was something I never envisioned.
I work in a largely male dominated industry but the encouragement from CMG since my first day here, three years ago has been great. I've been fortunate in that I've encountered extremely supportive supervisors and a responsible and hard-working group of peers. They've all played a major role in getting me here where I now head the department
