Never before has the need to partner with an experienced recruitment company been so evident as we face an increasingly talent short global market.

The 2008 Grant Thornton International Business Survey advises that 48% of businesses in South Africa attribute the lack of availability of a skilled workforce as the biggest constraint to business growth.

In 2008, South Africa also took part in the third annual Talent Shortage Survey conducted by the USA based employment services leader, Manpower, and of the 38% of South African employers surveyed, the following skills shortages were listed in order of priority:

  • Skilled tradesmen (electricians, welders etc)
  • Engineers
  • Accounting and Finance staff
  • Management Executives
  • Teachers
  • Sales Representatives
  • IT Staff
  • Secretaries (Including PA’s, administrative and support staff).
