Realizing Human Potential

A recruitment company with a difference

First Class Recruitment is a boutique recruitment firm that specializes in matching the right talent to the right job opportunities across Africa. We go out of our way to find that missing person for your business puzzle. We are the partner that understands your needs, recruits ‘best-in-class’ talent and counsel you towards a successful conclusion to the search process.

Our primary activity is permanent placements and temporary staffing for either single, large volume or ongoing staffing requirements. We recruit at all levels from junior to senior and across a broad range of employee categories and sectors.

Why First Class Recruitment

Just like First Class, we stand out. This is due to our proactive recruitment of candidates who may not be seeking new employment and would not normally respond to routine advertising, or who may come from non-traditional sources.

When sourcing for and placing candidates, we firstly strive to understand our clients’ requirements, culture and business ensuring the placement of suitable people who are thoroughly screened and vetted for the required position. And what’s more, we are FUN to work with!

Our Values

  • Client focus – We deliver WOW service.
  • Courage – We embrace and drive change.
