Our professional services extend across the following areas of expertise:

Our fast and efficient process will ensure that your needs are met.

We get to know the Client, its objectives and the company’s background and culture. We visit their workplace to gain an in-depth understanding of the environment and position together with the roles and responsibilities of the ideal candidate.

We research all competing companies within the industry, job grading and salary structures so that we are able to provide organisations with a competitive edge.

We develop a customised recruitment plan. We explore our network of passive candidates (top talent who may not be actively seeking a new job) and expand our search to include our active job seekers database. We then embark on a specialised advertising campaign to attract the ideal candidates.  In addition we are also trained headhunters.

We identify suitable candidates and perform the initial selection/screening interview which includes a customized behavioral assessment. The shortlisted candidates are evaluated against the required technical ability and social attributes necessary for success. Finally, we critically verify the candidate’s professional references and work history, as well as doing all relevant background checks.

We present you with the profiles of the top candidates and coordinate the entire interviewing process for your organisation. We will assist you in the selection of the most qualified candidate and finalise the job offer specifics.

We present the offer of employment to the successfully identified candidate, managing any negotiation, and ultimately secure the signed offer letter. When appropriate, we assist the candidate with the resignation process from their current place of employment, helping to avoid potential counteroffers or conflicts of interest.

Ongoing Follow up
We work with both you and the candidate to ensure that the on boarding process proceeds smoothly.


Ambitious companies are built and driven by talented people. Finding these types of people is one of the most challenging tasks in the modern business environment.

The most important business resource over the next 20 years will need to be talented, intelligent, sophisticated and commercial individuals, who are technologically literate and operationally agile. However, as the demand increases the supply of such talent is conversely dwindling.

We post the question?
Why is it exceedingly difficult for companies to find or attract an outstanding candidate through traditional recruitment methods?
The answer lies in the fact that only a fraction of the talented people are actively looking for new positions.
Traditional recruitment techniques simply do not reach these exceptional candidates.
