Finding the right talent in the USA for our specialized tech roles was proving to be a significant challenge. Thankfully, we discovered Rob and Marc Skill-Smiths, who masterfully opened the doors to the South African market for us. With their exceptional expertise, they very quickly took the time to understand our business and niche requirements which culminated in them successfully placing several hard-to-fill positions, by doing so Skill-Smiths have really shone a shining light on the untapped potential in the region. Our experience working with them has been nothing short of brilliant, easy and very efficient. We wholeheartedly recommend their services, and will continue to rely and partner for our talent acquisition needs.

Jay GundotraFounder & CEO of ENow Software

Thank you for the fantastic service provided by the Skill-Smiths team.
This position we needed to fill was very unique, and candidates certainly not in ample supply.
In spite of that, the speed and efficiency with which you managed to put forward a number of great candidates was very impressive.
The candidate you recommended has proven to be a world-class appointment
I love your responsiveness, interest in our business, attention to detail, and flexibility!!

Hein BuhrmannDirector – Ergosense

Not being on the job market for a long time, was a very daunting experience. Rob and his team not only found the perfect opportunity for me but prepared me every step of the way to set me up for success. I was well-informed and was provided prompt feedback after every interview and engagement with the client. After a very thorough, professional experience, I have now commenced my new job, thanks to Rob and the team. I would recommend them to anyone seeking to make a career change.

Skill-Smiths has truly been outstanding from start to end! Your help, guidance and assistance with getting me a position at a well-known international mining company. I appreciate your honesty and trust, and value the relationship that we have built, that is still ongoing. You and your team truly went the extra mile to answer all questions, set up calls and in helping me land the perfect job.
Thank you, Rob and team!

Gert BreedSenior IT Project Manager

Rob Peet at Skill-Smiths have been amazing. He prepared me extremely well for interviews and contact discussions and kept me in the loop in a very calm and concise manner at all times.
Having dealt with numerous agencies in the past and not had great experiences, Skill-Smiths have restored my faith, making me feel like an individual, rather than just another number looking for a job.
A breath of fresh air in the recruitment world – I would recommend Rob Peet and Skill-Smiths to anyone looking for employment. You guys rock!

Eugene BuitendagQA Engineering Lead ENOW Software

I’ve recently worked with Skill-Smiths recruiting firm whose tag line reads “humanizing IT”. Truer words were never said.
Terrific team who make the recruiting process personal, human and FUN. (Need more fun in business for sure!) Please consider these folks when resourcing needs occur.
Thanks, Robert Peet and crew, for being such wonderful work partners! Looking forward to working together again very soon.

Donnay PetreySnr Business Relationship Manager – Chicago US

I was approached by Skill-Smiths for a role at iiDENTIFii - a FinTech pushing the boundaries in terms of fighting identity theft and fraud in Africa. Skill-Smiths arranged a meet-and-greet with the CEO within a day of our first engagement, and although I was excited by what the company was doing, it was quite a daunting prospect as it was my first time back in the market in over a decade.
The team at Skill-Smiths were fantastic though - it was evident from the get-go that this was not a fishing exercise and that they had a clear intent of finding and matching the right person with iiDENTIFIi. The brief was clearly to look for someone where the cultural fit is right, and both parties can benefit.
The entire Skill-Smiths team played a role in preparing me for the interviews, keeping me updated throughout the process - and I know they also pushed for a decision to be reached timeously with the iiDENTIFii crew. I also appreciated the effort ¡¡DENTIFIi put into the process to ensure they find the right person for their requirement, while also making sure they're the right employer for the incumbent.
Even after placement, it was great catching up with the team and their sincerity and care extended into my new role, checking in on me and ensuring that I'm settled and happy at iiDENTIFIi. I loved the genuine, hands-on approach that Marc, Leona, Rob and Thania exhibited through the recruitment process, and I can only commend them on their personal, human-first approach. As for my role at iiDENTIFIi - I'm excited beyond words at what we're aiming to achieve, and I count myself fortunate that my path crossed with both Skill-Smiths and iiDENTIFIi.

I was honoured to be contacted by Skill-Smiths regarding a Senior Network Engineer position at Bond IT in the Netherlands.
The selection process proved to be a rigorous and extensive journey, involving multiple rounds of interviews. However, I must commend the Skill-Smiths team for their exceptional support throughout this process.
Navigating the interview stages was particularly challenging due to the need to align the interview slots with my existing commitments at my previous place of employment. Despite this complexity, the Skill-Smiths team exhibited remarkable professionalism and dedication, ensuring that the interview schedule was accommodating to my availability.
Following the completion of the interviews, Skill-Smiths continued to impress me with their proactive communication. Their consistent updates and follow-up on each step of the process demonstrated their commitment to keeping me informed and engaged.

In summary, my experience with Skill-Smiths throughout the Senior Network Engineer hiring process at Bond IT was marked by their outstanding preparation, scheduling prowess, and attentive communication.
