Manchester-based technical recruiter, NES Global Talent, has opened a new office in Cape Town to cater for demand in South East Africa, reports bdaily.co.uk. The office will act as NES Global Talent’s regional hub for business activity across South East Africa with company registrations in Mozambique and Tanzania set to follow in early 2014.
Kenny Davies, major project sales director at NES Global Talent, said: “The opportunity in South Africa is very exciting with many new and existing clients having expressed an interest in working with us. Indeed, activity across the whole of South East Africa is ramping up, with sizable Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) discoveries being made in a number of countries, including Mozambique and Tanzania.”
“We’re looking forward to having a physical presence to keep pace with the region’s growing hiring demands,” he concluded.
The new office will be managed locally by Etienne Swanepoel, who was previously based in NES Global Talent’s Perth office. Another recruitment specialist from Cape Town will join the office in December and further appointments will be made during the course of 2014.
Mr Swanepoel commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity but also a great responsibility. I want to ensure NES Global Talent becomes the preferred supplier to many of the key clients in the South African market and in these early stages it’s important to build strong and lasting relationships.”
