Qualified Professional Careers

Finding golden eggs is mutually rewarding

As a professional, your career becomes more complex as you become more experienced. Our job is to find what works for you.

With our experience, we source and place the most high-performance people. We know that moving qualified and often the most senior individuals requires the highest levels of analysis in finding the right fit at the perfect time. Our philosophy is to provide superior service with meticulous attention to detail and strict confidentiality to both candidates and companies.

Flexible Working – workspace not workplace

The ‘work to death’ giant is no more

In a modern and global workspace people are looking to work differently. People want balance and seek flexibility to work on their own terms.

Professionals are no longer looking to tie their whole lives into their workplace. A trending number of people are linking themselves to short-term and exciting projects across industries rather than working full time in a single place.

Companies are adopting modern resourcing methods. They are keen to have high calibre people as and when they need them, without the cost of a long-term headcount. We bring like-minded people together on a simple transactional basis through our network vines.

Organisational design analytics

Digital Vines

Through the most advanced technology and analytic systems, we will work with you to obtain qualitative and quantitative reporting metrics on all people aspects of your business using a single system and minimising human capital time and resources.

Building your recruitment brand

To appreciate a recruitment brand is simple. The best people choose the brands they are most familiar with and a brand they trust. To build this brand is more complex. We will work with you to create your recruitment brand and to position yourself as a people-focused, modern company.

Graduates and high school students

Climbing stalks

Graduate placement platform – converting giant apparitions

Graduates, how often have you submitted applications to potential employers which vanish without acknowledgement? Our network vine of a committed group of companies connect university and high school graduates with work and internship opportunities. Through our graduate platform we identify talented students and place them in companies committed to developing the careers of our country's brightest young minds.

Companies, in our 18 years as recruiters we often hear how companies are struggling to find and secure talented graduates. Recent research has shown that up to 42% of new graduates struggle in the workplace. We will work with you to find the best graduates and to prepare them in making the giant leap from the university lawns into the fastpaced corporate world.

CV and interview preparation session

Large companies receive between 3000-5000 applications in a single year from young school leavers and university graduates. Most CVs fail to make it past the first level of screening. Candidates often fail to prepare a CV that commands attention. Our CV and interview preparation courses are available to students as a one-on-one course, and for groups.
