PeopleSource is a proudly South African, niche-focused, boutique recruitment firm. We act as catalysts in providing leading firms and candidates with proven professional expertise in addressing specialist employment needs.

We differentiate ourselves by focusing on four key areas: Mobile Telecommunications, Business/Finance, Engineering, and IT.

Our consultants’ extensive track record means that we offer our clients both the market knowledge and the technical experience to get the right match between career and candidate.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT

Candidates can expect full confidentiality and protection from risk in their current positions as well as a choice of opportunities and expert guidance, ensuring they make the right career decisions.

Corporates can expect a select choice of top talent, thoroughly screened for the perfect fit in skills, culture and values.

Both candidates and corporates can expect an ethical approach and a professional service – with a passion for getting it right.

OUR CONSULTANTS ARE SPECIALIST RECRUITERS

Our consultants specialise in one or more of our four key areas. As South Africa and the rest of the world continue to struggle with the skill and talent mismatch in these difficult areas, we are proud of the fact that our candidates and clients return to us time and time again – and in many cases, our candidates become our clients, asking us to help them grow and expand their own teams.
