    Our commitment to you

    • Quality candidatesWe screen and interview all candidates before presenting them, and our shortlists will always meet your brief. We only send you the suitable candidates we’d hire ourselves!
    • Recruitment On-Demand We provide an affordable, transparent and fully customized recruitment service that can potentially save our clients up to 60% of the cost of traditional recruitment agencies. We offer you the flexibility to choose the level of recruitment support you require based on your company needs and budget.
    • Transparency & honesty when discussing what we can achieve for you, no time-wasting conversations. We will never tell you what we think you want to hear. Instead, we will be open and honest and treat you with the respect you deserve.
    • Diligent – We are at the bottom of the IT recruitment food chain (harsh but true). Thus, we cannot afford not to be great. When you are not the biggest player in your niche, you have to try harder and do better. We do. There is no rest for us (well, maybe a little when we watch ‘Star Wars’).
    • Walking in your shoesWe have been on “your side” of the recruitment process and clearly understand your challenges. We are equipped with the resources and knowledge to help solve your hiring needs. Who can understand and help you better than someone who was in a similar position, right?
    • At the core of our professional expertise (and our own personal job satisfaction), is the idea of acting with integrity, which means respecting your confidentiality, communicating honestly and forming relationships built on trust.


    Hello, fellow IT experts! We want to help you identify, build and sell your unique personal brand to the right company, in your ideal role. Think of us as your personal cheer squad; we’ll encourage you to go for the roles you’re truly passionate about and brag about you to our clients when we’re pitching you for a role. So if you are talented, passionate, trustworthy and above all, love ‘Star Wars’ (kidding! Or are we?) then let’s connect!

    Our commitment to you

    • We listen to you

      and will take the time to find out what you want, rather than shoehorning you into jobs that aren’t right for you. You’re not just another number to us. In fact, we genuinely delight in getting to know you and what makes you unique.

    • Communication

      Honest and open communication is our modus operandi. We never put you forward for a role without discussing it with you. And we keep you updated on our progress, even when there is no news.

    • Transparency

      We only invite you in for an interview if we have a role on offer or if we think we can pitch you to one of our clients. And if we are unable to source a position that meets your requirements, we will advise you.

    • Advice

      We offer advice on making your CV a winning one, preparing for behavioral and technical-based job interviews and much more. And we always give a constructive feedback after an interview, even when you don’t get the job!

    We have your best interests at heart, just as much as we have those of the employers. So whether you are actively looking or just interested in what’s out there, please do not hesitate to get in touch!

    We love meeting new people, especially when they are through the people we already know. If you have a friend or colleague who might be looking for a new environment or challenge, we would like to meet them! You do not have to be registered with us to make a referral.

    What makes for a successful referral?

    • The candidate must not already be registered with us (otherwise it is not much of a referral, is it?)
    • The candidate must be placed in a full-time role (permanent or contract)
    • The candidate must pass their probation period (usually 3 months)
    • Your referral is valid for 6 months from the date of your introduction. Have someone in mind?

    Happy referring!!
