Michelle Beale


I am passionate about people and making a difference.

In founding Electus in 2012, I took the leap of faith to the role of full-time entrepreneur and recruitment consultant. I enjoy the diversity of recruitment and have come to specialise in sales placements across industries, as a result of this.

I love that my career allows me the opportunity to foster the progress and development of others on a daily basis. I am as passionate about helping candidates find meaning and purpose in the right role as I am about assisting companies to grow to new heights, developing the South African economy.

I believe in being a student for life, consistently opening my mind to new learning opportunities. My team teaches me new lessons in life and leading daily - without them this company would not be what it is today. Also, their shenanigans and sense of humour keep me generally sane - which is a real bonus.

I believe that the more you do, the more you can do. That is as true in business as it in sports and fitness. I am a self-confessed Crossfit addict and rookie runner. Outside of ‘the box’, I enjoy thinking creatively and consider myself to be a bit of a novice artist. I am a timid adventurer who loves a hearty laugh, good wine and great company (but mostly the wine).

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
