SA's Premium Automotive Recruitment Consultancy


Our candidate database sets us apart from our competitors. The size and depth of the database is rich with high quality candidates who work at all layers of the automotive industry.



As specialists in recruitment for the motor industry, we are a preferred supplier to most dealer networks across South Africa. Our understanding of the sector means we can effectively and accurately screen candidates before you receive any CVs.

This expertise also means we can commit to a maximum fill rate with minimum fall-off risk.


Using our sophisticated recruitment management package and having a national footprint means that we can share candidates across regions so you can find the people you need, where you need them.

Company structure and process

We operate as a registered close corporation and a VAT vendor. We are fully compliant with SDL, UIF, PAYE and workmen's compensation legislation. A valid tax clearance certificate will be provided on request. We invoice our clients on the day that a new candidate starts their placement. Thereafter, we structure our reports according to your needs. At a minimum we provide monthly feedback on vacancies opened, positions filled, time-to-fill and salary rates. We also manage our databases continuously through targeted discussions by telephone and e-mail.

Preferred supplier arrangements

Managing the recruitment process for the automotive sector is complex enough. But when you deal with more than one recruitment agency, it becomes very difficult indeed. It can be standard practice for an agency to inundate the client with sales calls, candidate shortlists and too many unsuitable candidates per vacancy. Short-termism becomes the order of the day and the quality of service and candidates diminishes.

As your preferred automotive recruitment supplier, you get informed specialist advice from experienced consultants; qualified, pre-screened and quality candidates; long-term partnerships, and access to hidden talent presented by our substantial candidate database.
