Complement Recruitment has transformed our attitude when liaising with staffing & recruitment agencies. Our HR Department is hesitant to deal with a new vendor as one can imagine; however, Candice has proven to have an implausible eye for talent & the crucial candidate / company fit. She is highly efficient, proactive, maintains communication in all stages of the hiring process, & is always a pleasure to work with, even after hours & on weekends. We can discuss a position over the phone, without forwarding a job description, and Candice knows exactly what to look for. In my 18 years in the Human Resources & Talent Recruitment fields, Candice is one of the most diverse, fervent & resourceful people I have ever had the pleasure of working with.
We won’t be needing another Recruiter for our business as Candice is just that, an invaluable, outsourced “Complement” for our Team.” – Senior Human Resources & Talent Manager
As Head of Human Resources at a medium-large sized manufacturing company, I worked closely with Candice to fill strategic leadership and technical positions. The technical and scarce skills specifications of our unique business proved challenging to find candidates who met both the technical and cultural fit to our business. Candice became a trusted business partner seeking clarification on vacancy requirements and providing input on the skills and resource trends in the market. As a result, the ratio of candidates presented per successful placement was significantly reduced minimizing cost and effort of placement and supporting successful achievement of the strategic objectives of the business. In my 15 years of consulting experience across industries I have learnt the importance maintaining partnerships with dedicated professionals and therefore will continue to engage Candice’s services in future.” – Chief HR & Talent Officer
Complement Recruitment are a breath of fresh air! No mess, no fuss. Honest, Focused, Forthcoming, and we formed a genuine partnership. A candidate we employed even remarked on his first day of induction assuring us from his side, Candice was proficient, sincere and went above and beyond continuously for him. She really takes the entire, often lengthy process, and everyone involved into account. This is the representation we want in colleagues, candidates and business partners. – HR Manager
Complement Recruitment has shown us that finding a new addition to the team can be an enjoyable process. Excellent customer service and attention to detail. Candice really understands the ethos of our brand.” –IT & Branding Manager
We battled for months to find the right person for our department, we used various agencies, but no one could find us what we were looking for. Complement Recruitment found us the epitome of the ideal candidate in record time. Candice stated she will not send a CV of someone she herself would not hire and in an industry that is saturated with “placement fees” over “suitable placements” her candor speaks volumes. The service is beyond exceptional, and Candice prides herself on integrity and we have complete trust in her capabilities. – HR & Talent Manager
Complement Recruitment always go above and beyond the call of duty for us, no job is too big or small. Candice is extremely resourceful, dedicated, and an avid professional at all times! We trust her & her team with the utmost respect & have developed a genuine friendship.” –HR Director
Candice is always available, attentive, & meticulous. She knows exactly what we are looking for. The applicant’s we interview from Complement Recruitment fit our company values, have the team player attitude & work ethic we pride ourselves on. Whether candidates are coming through from out of town, or locals, Candice arranges everything & really streamlines the entire process for our line managers, & human resources department, taking so much pressure off our shoulders. A full-service agency like no other we have dealt with! – Regional Manager
Candice has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. I have been on the job market for over 5 months and from every other recruiter I have dealt with, Candice has really changed my perception of recruiters. She went out of her way to secure this position I have now accepted. She even worked on weekends and responded to my messages and emails on days she was off sick. She was pleasant and encouraging during my interview process. I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to deal with a recruiter with such professionalism and dedication to her candidates – BCom SAICA Accountant
Complement Recruitment is one of the best recruitment agencies I have dealt with in my career. Most agencies/recruiters request your documents & CV, get you as the job hunter / seeker excited about the position, & then we never hear anything from them again. With Complement Recruitment, I was taken aback that there are still professional’s out there that keep us updated on the next steps, before I even had to call & follow up. Great service, professional & always go the extra mile for candidates, first-hand experience! – Engineering Supervisor
Having been in a Human Resources position for many years, we deal with a variety of staffing & recruitment agencies and recruiter’s. When I applied for a HR Officer role, Candice responded to me within the same day of my application. Two days later, I met with her and our journey began. I found Candice to be friendly, professional, tactful, hands-on and asked the right questions. She was not going to submit my CV if the organisation’s culture and open vacancy was not what I was looking for, saving time for all parties involved. Her passion for people and recruitment is infectious, in an industry that most people do not understand how difficult it is. – HR Officer
Too often, recruiters only seem interested in their client’s requests, forgetting the needs of the candidates they are looking to fill a vacancy. Having applied for a position through the Complement Recruitment website, I received an “auto-responder” email, and I thought “Oh well, I won’t be hearing from them, my CV will never be seen”. My inner critic was shocked and humbled when Candice contacted me 2 days later asking for my documentation that the Auto-Responder email requested. We had a 30-minute conversation about the vacancy and general chit-chat. We discussed how a CV is just a presentation of the candidate, and an interview grants us the platform to really engage and interact with the potential employer. I felt a direct, sincere attitude from Candice after our discussion.
Two weeks later, Candice called me to say I have an interview with her client. Initially, they did not wish to interview me as my CV didn’t “fit” the profile, but Candice persevered, as she said she does. The rest is history. I started with the company a month later, and I have been with them for almost 8 months. Candice continues to keep in touch, as she said she would. A skilled, professional woman of her word, integrity and personable character. – Business Development Manager
My time spent hunting was a lengthy and unsuccessful one until I came across Complement Recruitment. Candice and her team set me up with an interview and although the recruitment process spanned, I’ve a few months due to the company. Candice’s quick response time and great management skills made the process a lot better. I would recommend Complement Recruitment to anyone that is looking for a job as their services are impeccable. – Engineer
