“Is there anything greater than finding the perfect fit? The pair of jeans that accentuates your best parts, the group of friends that loves your quirks and accepts your foibles, the armchair that feels like it’s giving you a hug. I love that we help people and companies find their perfect fit. It’s not just about comfort – the matches we make help people and companies feel better, do better, be better. In other words, we facilitate greatness!”
Advaita has her roots in academic research – having worked at the HSRC while completing her Masters – but what really excites her is engaging with real live human beings daily. And it shows. Wise insights bubble up and she articulates them with easy eloquence, balancing sharp intellect and dry wit.
Before joining Jack Hammer, she lived and worked in the UK, US and Singapore. She was a knowledge manager at a boutique executive search firm in London, and then a freelance researcher focusing on the consumer goods sector.
She currently heads operations and performance improvement at Jack Hammer, including the full research function and technology platforms – amongst the many other moving parts of what has now become Africa’s largest executive search boutique.
