Our Values

Integrity and trust is paramount in our dealings with clients and candidates. Without this we will not exist.
Integrity is doing the right thing. Even when no-one is watching.- CS Lewis

It’s really important that we let our clients know when they’re trying to find someone for a role that doesn’t exist, or that they’re paying below market values. It’s also important to be open with candidates when we see that they perhaps don’t have the right skills to move forward in their career and advising them to upskill or look at other alternatives. We negotiate salaries up front so their aren’t nasty surprises at the end of the process.
Truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtues – Baha ‘U’llah

When we commit to finding an employee for our clients we stick to it unless the specification is un-doable for whatever reason i.e. salary package not in line with market values, the skill set should be done by 3 people. We think our commitment speaks for itself as many of our clients have been with us since 2007.
Most people fail, not because of lack of desire, but because of lack of commitment – Vince Lombardi

We try, at all times, to deal with every person in a dignified manner. If we cannot help we’ll say so.
When you win, say nothing. When you lose, say less – Paul Brown

Kindness costs nothing. Every person looking for a new job deserves kindness. They are doing the best they can for themselves and their families. We like to remember that.
No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted. – Aesop

A scarce commodity in our world today. If a particular role is not right for you, we know you will give us a call the next time you’re in need of change. Just because we weren’t able to find you the right candidate this time doesn’t mean we don’t want to try harder next time.
Patience is bitter but it’s fruit is sweet. - Aristotle

"TCaren was the consultant responsible for my recruitment process into Area Sales Manager in RSA. She is exceptional person with deep understanding of the local market and strategical way of thinking. At the same time Caren is very sincere, diplomatic, always friendy and positive. It was a pleasure to work with her."

Magdalena Dąbrowska
HR Manager, JDA Software Poland, Center Of Excellence

"Caren and I have worked together on a few occasions - she has consistently over the years proven to be one of the most professional and just outright "great" people to deal with. Whether two years had gone by since a previous discussion - Caren has an amazing ability to recall your key strength and a genuine commitment to finding just the fit for you within an organisation ... Recommending Caren would be an understatement ..."

Garin Reyneke,
Scrum Master

"I worked with Caren when I decided to start looking for a new company. She was a very big help and only sent me on interviews with the types of companies that suited my requirements. We still keep in contact and I'm sure when I do decide to make a shift in companies again, I'll contact her first. She is really professional and cares about what she does as well as the people that she assists in their careers. I'm sure that anyone that comes into contact with Caren will walk away from the experience feeling satisfied in the knowledge that his requirements will be met. Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity"
