1) Africa targeted search capability and experience
Our service is focussed on head-hunting not only expat but also locally based professionals based across Africa. Our networking methodology allows us to assist clients with a variety of recruitment assignments often aimed at assisting clients with their growth strategies into new regional markets across the continent. Years of Africa based search has given us insight into the competitive African skills market allowing us to offer a talent map of the market to our clients.
2) Specialised niche sector targeted search capability
We are specialists focussing on a few niche sectors. This ensures that we are effectively able to talent map the particular sector and bring our clients the best performing candidates within a superior turnaround time. Our approach is aimed at keeping close to the top performing professionals in the industry in a consultative and engaging way rather than just populating a resume database.
3) Our Passive Skills Focus
Our focus is on the passive skills pool as this is the pool of professionals that are not going to respond to any direct advertising or job portals adverts. Traditionally passive candidates are the better performing individuals who are pretty happy where they are. They are in demand in the industry as they are a low risk hire and have proven themselves. This type of skilled individual would need to be approached in a totally different way to an active, desperate job seeker. Being in the people business we understand this distinction and that people buy people. Looking beyond the resume is a must in order to get into the psyche of a potential hire and ensure a smooth on boarding process. We believe that the “Psychological Employment Contract” starts way before an individual accepts an employment offer. It starts right at the beginning of the recruitment process when we call a potential candidate with an opportunity in your company. Managing that process successfully requires a true partnership between agency and client so as to create as good an impression of your company as possible.
4) Our 3 tier guarantee clause
We understand that using an external recruitment resource is an expensive investment. We stand by the effectiveness of our networking ability to bring you the best candidates in the market and shield your organisation from poor performing professionals. We are 100% focussed on quality. However being in the people business means there are no guarantees and there are times when things may go wrong. We back our service and are therefore prepared to offer our clients a guarantee period of up to 12 months should one of our candidates leave your employ. This guarantee is divided into a 3, 6 and 12 month guarantee period each with its own value proposition for our clients. Our aim is to build longstanding relationships with clients where we add tangible value to your recruitment process rather than make it only about cost.
5) We Deliver
Delivering what our clients are looking for is the key barometer for our success. We value your time and ours, so we measure our success by this criterion stringently. The frustrations and costs that come with having a vacancy open in your organisation is something we understand. By allowing us to partner with you in a mutually respectful manner we will ensure that we deliver on assignments in an honest and efficient manner. Our consultative approach and understanding of the talent market will act as an invaluable guide in your attempts to attract individuals with a particularly scarce combination of skills.
