Director - South Africa

As the founder of Macdonald & Company in South Africa, I focus exclusively on recruitment into the property and construction industries throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.

We have worked with developers, funds, financial institutions, contractors and real estate consultancies to establish or grow their teams over the past 14 years.

Although I generally recruit at a senior level, I still get the greatest joy out of creating real change in someone's life. My exceptional team and I work slightly differently to our peers in the rest of the world, as we are client focussed rather than specialism led.

With over 2500 skydives to my name, I'm someone who loves a challenge, and believes in doing something that takes you out of your comfort zone every day. . . which is probably why I also got married and had two children, who remain my greatest daily challenge!

作为 Macdonald&Company 在南非办事处的创始人,我专注于整个撒哈拉以南非洲的房地产和建筑行业内的招聘事务。

在过去的14年中,我们与开发商、基金、金融机构、承包商和房地产咨询公司合作建立或发展他们的团队。

尽管过去我通常在高层任职,但在为别人的生活带来实实在在的改变时,我会感受到最大的快乐。与其他同行同事相比,我和我的团队工作的不同之处在于,我们以客户为导向。

我拥有 2500 多次的跳伞经历,热爱挑战,并且坚信每天所做的事情都会带您离开舒适区…这可能是我为什么结婚并育有两个孩子的原因,因为孩子们仍然还是我每天需要面对的最大挑战!

“The average person will spend anywhere from 50,000-15,0000 hours of their total lifetime, or about 20-60% of their meaningful adult time, on their careers“– Tim Urban.  Wait, but why?

Whether it is helping you find the right talent for a role, or reaching your career goals, I am all about helping you get there.

As a recruiter, my drive and passion is to create, match and unify connections through building lasting relationships.

Having around 5 years’ experience within internal recruitment and drawing from experience in mining, finance and insurance, I consider myself fortunate to be a part of the Macdonald & Company team – the leading professional recruitment consultancy for the real estate and built environment.

Recruitment Consultant - South Africa

Integral to my career success and achievements over 15 years’ in the workplace has been the placement and development of effective candidates in the right fit roles. I know full well the joys and pains of hiring the right person, for the right role, at the right time and for the right company.

On the journey, I gained valuable experience in recruitment for various areas of businesses in the positions that I have held, as well as in different industries, 5 years of which were spent in the property sector. This experience has added depth and scope to the value that I can offer you.

Bringing onboard new employees who are not well-suited for the job or the company culture is unnecessarily expensive. Not only in terms of time and money, but morale and productivity too.

I invite you to connect with me for a virtual coffee to explore how I can help you find associated opportunities.

My passion for customer service delivery and the success of the companies that I have represented, as well as my business ethics, hard work, and focused drive for business excellence are traits that have always set me apart from the rest.

 

Recruitment Consultant - South Africa

“Recruiting is a form of investing. You have to do your research and make sure you’re spending your resources on the right pick”

Once I completed my honours degree in psychology with a focus on counselling and human behaviour. I took a chance and got involved in the property recruitment industry and found my calling.

As a resourcing consultant, my goal is to understand the ins and outs of both our clients and candidates and to build trust driven relationships to create strong and healthy recruitment strategies in order to attract the very best talent. Being a good recruiter is more than just matching a candidate to a job it’s about having the insight into your clients’ needs and empathy for your candidates true career aspirations.

Senior Consultant - South Africa

I have recently joined Macdonald & Company after spending 4 years with global real estate services business JLL, and provided leasing and advisory services to a variety of international blue chip organisations and local SME’s.

Prior to JLL, I spent 7 years with international recruitment consultancy Robert Walters and held senior positions in South Africa and Australia. Free time is spent in the kitchen, cinema or the occasional sporting event.
