We worked with Jack Hammer on recruiting a very specific profile for an industrial start up. They captured our challenges well, despite the unusual mandate. Candidates were of high calibre with some original profiles, which enriched our thinking. Overall a great experience; we’ve experienced the same professionalism with the whole team.
Jerome Boyet – Managing Director, TMH Africa
Jack Hammer is our ‘go to’ recruiter for senior-level searches in our portfolio companies. The team is exactly what you would hope for: responsive, hard-working, adaptive, creative, respected, and profoundly well-connected in the business community. They have achieved great results for us, even on the most challenging assignments across Southern Africa.
Peter Baird - Managing Principal and Head of Private Equity, Investec Asset Management
One phrase that I learned from Jack Hammer is: “We don’t look at the problem, we look at the solution”. Jack Hammer matches the need of the company and the individual. This sounds very simple but it is very difficult to achieve. Jack Hammer perfected this in my process.
Thys van Zyl - Finance Director, Rijk Zwaan
I have been involved in recruitment for a while and I certainly learned a lot from Jack Hammer on how to keep applicants informed, excited and engaged. It is clear that you this is a committed team that works hard and is willing to go the extra mile.
Jac Lourens - COO, Origin Wine
Jack Hammer understood our needs and business in order to provide us with the most appropriate candidate for the non-executive role. The experience was very professional.
Eddie Ashkar - Chairperson, Assupol Nominations Committee
Our candidate is doing wonderfully. The gap that we had needed someone who would hit the ground running and she did. She’s been remarkable and the culture fit is spot on.
Pat Hadebe - Finance Manager, Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls
The candidate has settled in well and we are very happy to have him on board. We are building for the future. Thanks for your support in this recruitment phase.
Madelon Vos - Advisor Human Resources, Rijk Zwaan
I enjoy Jack Hammer’s professional approach and the fact that they have a good understanding of the Woolworths culture, enabling them to find the best people for us. The regular process updates help in tracking delivery against the plan, but the ongoing, more informal, check-ins to assess satisfaction levels are especially appreciated, as is the quick response time.
Jonathan Loder - Head HR: ROG & OD: Woolworths
As always, I found all our interaction during the process of the highest quality and very professional. That’s my third successful search with Jack Hammer, so yes, I am a fan!
David Stronach - Managing Director, Investec Management Services
Thank you for reaching out to me and navigating the space for me from a co-founder to be ready to step into a different and exciting world where I can continue my work in education and social change and, at the same time, be afforded to stretch my wings and grow. Thank you for the professionally crafted journey and best of luck for the many more that lie ahead!
Adri Marais - CEO, Christel House SA
First and most important I think we found an ideal candidate. The process agreed for the search was implemented to plan. All in all a very positive experience; I would recommend your firm and I would rate your service highly.
Steve Ross - Chairman, Christel House SA
