About Me

Debbie West

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Debbie has been in the recruitment industry for just over 15 years.  She started her recruitment career in the Temporary Recruitment Division, then moved over to the IT Sector working in Cape Town. 

She relocated in 2011 to PE to start an IT Recruitment Branch for the same company & later moved to doing general recruitment across the board.  Her focus was on artisans, pharmaceutical, IT & production/manufacturing divisions, ranging from Junior to more Senior roles including Managing Director roles/Management roles.  

I am passionate about recruitment as there is always something new to learn especially in the IT Sector but no day is ever the same.  There is nothing like placing a candidate who you know is going to thrive in their new role & environment. A happy employee will always contribute to making any business a success, it’s a life changing experience.

About Me

Gitte Wiseman

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Gitte has now been in recruitment for 17 years working across the board on all positions and focussing on positions from Artisan level to Plant Manager, Finance Clerk to CFO and Senior Management. 

The aim of finding the right person for the job has her driving force through the years. She feels a happy employee becomes a happy parent and the circle of working life is then fulfilled.  If an agency can support clients and candidates in their search with clear and experienced advice, then we have done our job well and we have proved this through the years.

As a younger mother she ran the Tuckshop for the school which her boys attended in Cape Town.  She had also worked for a Promotions company and the Cape Times in organising Business Breakfasts at the Mount Nelson Hotel before moving back to Port Elizabeth which was her home town.

Starting afresh at the age of 47, Gitte ventured into Recruitment quite by chance.  In facing the needs of clients and candidates then, she has been able to offer sincere and professional assistance to all.
