Head of Recruitment (DBN)

Durban – KwaZulu Natal

Our client is an innovative Financial Services Provider, with an approach to business that is outside the box and sometimes viewed as unconventional.

They choose to work only with people who are committed to continuous learning, and who are willing to step far outside of what they know and who want to grow and develop to their highest potential.
