Yazoo

linking you to your next opportunity

We believe in making selection and recruitment a two-way conversation

Yazoo Recruitment Specialists is big enough to source top talent but at the same time small enough to still care about offering a personal service to both candidates and clients alike.

Since January 2003, we have been building a dynamic reputation and growing a solid network of connections in the Off-Shore, Financial Services, Audit and Accounting, and Engineering industries. It’s what we like to call top flight service, linking great candidates to the work opportunities that will further their career path. From the start, our competent team has been pulling in the same direction to ensure we get the right results concerning great selection and recruitment services.

We are passionate about what we do and have a genuine interest in seeing our candidates get the jobs that suit who they are in the workplace and outside of it too.

What is the secret that sets our staff recruitment process apart from all the rest? Our personal connection with our clients. We communicate with our clients regularly and get their feedback so that we understand their exact needs. When it comes to making our selection and recruitment, we are always on target.

A National and Off-Shore recruitment agency that is about finding the right opportunities

We offer business recruitment solutions nationwide as well as Off-Shore. We believe in giving everyone the opportunities they deserve and take Employment Equity very seriously. It is our company’s main objective to cater predominantly for candidates from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. The majority of the candidates placed through Yazoo Recruitment Specialists in the past have been EE candidates.

Our unique approach

We believe in people. And we believe that every professional job placement should be a win-win.  That’s why we will go the extra mile in our selection and recruitment process to ensure the right candidates are placed in the right positions.

What does the extra mile look like?  During your in depth interview, we will discuss your goals and aspirations, prepare you for the interview with our client until you feel comfortable and confident, staying in contact throughout the recruitment process so you always know what is happening.

Business recruitment services that speak to your needs

Our clients come to us because they know we will pull out all the stops to source the best person to fill the role. We thoroughly prepare the candidate for the interview process with you, our valued client.

We build relationships with our clients so we can understand exactly what they are looking for, and we take the time to get to know each of our candidates so we can understand their goals and aspirations, turning work opportunities into successful job placements.
