Job Search
I first worked with Andrew Wicks from Initiate International as a candidate seeking my next career move. Almost immediately after starting my new position, I contacted Initiate International to staff my team, and have since hired two fantastic professionals. I found Andrew and the staff at Initiate to be meticulous in their attention to both the candidate and client; they always 'do their homework' to gain a thorough understanding of the hiring organisation so that they will only present candidates that are the right match. Given the intensity and complexity of the Initiate placement process, I also knew that the candidates they presented would be strong, tough, and a 'cut above' the rest.

Afternoon Matthew. Trust that you are well. I've been interacting with Richard Harris regarding job applications in the Cape Town area and I would like to take this opportunity to give him the compliments that he deserves. From the get go, he was passionate and professional and guaranteed me that he will get me interviews organised over the upcoming weeks. With every application, he would send me all the job specs and documents in a timely fashion. Richard does not know the word 'delay', and his quality of service is a rare find nowadays; especially in the Recruitment industry as I've dealt with them many times before. Oh, and he was willing to work over-time to accommodate my time schedule. Golden! Thanks for delivering a professional service will most definitely refer you to friends and family. Kind Regards Wiehan
