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 level, I still get the greatest joy out of creating real change in someones 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!

Recruitment Consultant - South Africa

“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.

Researcher - South Africa

After completing my honours degree in psychology I got involved in the recruitment industry and found my niche. My passion for people and human relations fosters my enthusiastic and determined approach in my role as a resourcing consultant.

My focus, drive and interest in people has placed me in the recruitment industry where I am able to utilise my strengths and continue to grow. My strong interpersonal skills, dedication and continuous desire to learn has ensured my success in all aspects. I pride myself on my strong work ethic and apply myself fully to any challenge that I am presented with.

Researcher - South Africa

I am a dedicated individual with the belief that anything is possible at any moment of time, if one truly applies a devoted effort towards achieving those desired possibilities.  I believe that I have the quality to ensure this dedicated effort towards all potential clients and candidates within the market.

I believe that there is also great importance in ensuring in-depth communication and understanding towards both clients and candidates, to ensure effective and efficient problem solving solutions that can be used to benefit my potential clients and candidates. I like having complete transparency around business matters, as well as being mindful of trust and confidentiality between myself and both clients and candidates.  I am passionate to ensure the work and time I invest in building close relationships results in a high level of satisfaction for all stakeholders.  I aim to continuously achieve the best of myself and in doing so, I aim to achieve the best potential outcomes for both clients and candidates.
