I am the founder of Key Connections Recruitment. A Cape Town based, Technology Recruitment Company specialising in placing software and web development professionals throughout South Africa.
Almost 5 years later I was leading one of the most successful recruitment teams in the company. This was when I had to decide whether to stay in London forever OR take a leap of faith and move to Cape Town with my long term girlfriend (now wife:) Happily I made the right choice, left cold & wet London, moved to beautiful Cape Town! Upon returning to SA I realised that there were no real specialist recruitment companies. They all claim to be specialists in IT (that's quite a broad area to be a specialist in, don't you think?). And so, I founded Key Connections.
I make it my mission to build lasting relationships with talented developers AND connect them with SA's most awesome companies. I often work with developers that are not on the job market or actively looking for work smart enough to keep their options open. I don't just play "buzz word bingo" and spam developers with every job that comes my way! I take the time to find out what their dream job would be, and I contact them when an awesome opportunity comes along.
I am passionate about new technology, gadgets, entrepreneurship, and have a keen interest in the growing start up scene in SA (particularly in the "Silicon Cape". I am currently working on a start up idea to disrupt the tech recruitment industry in SA. Watch this space :)
