What Our Clients Say 

Who we place, is as important as where we place them.

I have worked with Heena for over 8 years. Her direct interaction with me would be in terms of receiving a clear brief, and understanding the position we were recruiting for in thorough detail before commencing with her candidate search. She is an excellent listener and pays very careful attention to the division, culture and position she is recruiting for – which is why her shortlisted candidates are always an excellent fit, and makes our decision a simple one.

Khahliso Mochaba, Media & Entertainment, Primedia Group [Client]

Talent Trace through the time taken to understand the needs of its clients has become a trusted business partner to Rand Refinery. The teams strengths is the Professional manner in which the assignment is dealt with and the honest feedback. Our business expectations were fully met as the candidates presented met the requirements and saved management time of sifting through lots of CVs.

Dean Subramanian, CFO, Rand Refinery [Client]

Ethical and trustworthy – Heena was very engaged with me from the word go, unlike other recruitment agents out where their main goal is to have a successful placement regardless of whether candidate is the right fit for the client or not. She was very attentive to my interests as well as profession and personal drivers. She provided sufficient information about the client, its culture etc. which enabled me to assess them as an employer of choice.

Thembelihle Matsoso, Risk and Compliance Manager, Rand Refinery [Candidate]

Talent Trace assisted with the placement of financial managers and a financial accountant (all CA’s). Talent Trace has a strong management team, had swift turnaround times with projects and are exceptionally solutions driven (arranged temp resources whilst permanent candidates were being identified). Candidates presented were appropriate and of high-calibre which made the interviewing process easier and resulted in a shorter time to placement.

Rayhaan Jhetam, Financial Services & Auditing, Alexander Forbes [Client]

Amazing. I was well prepared and there were various meetings to coach and prepare me including mock interviews. I believe these helped me a lot. Heena treated me as if she was not my agent. She really did more by going beyond her duties. I believe their specialised skills are their people skills and matching personalities to roles. Thank you for believing in me.

Winnie Phaleng, Specialist Group Technical & Finance Projects, PPC Ltd [Candidate]

Talent Trace is an exceptional agency.  I was hired by Alex at Talent Trace for a role at PwC. She then became my recruiter for almost all my vacancies at PwC. When I moved on to Compass Group, Alex was still my preferred supplier as she continued to ask the right questions, provide excellent cutting edge service and make it her duty to understand the environment. Talent Trace has the essence of business partnership, that’s what sets them apart.

Veedeshnee Ragavulu, Senior HRBP, Empact Group [Candidate]

I’ve dealt with numerous placement agencies before, and once the contract is signed all ties are cut, which screams “You’re just a number!” – but the Talent Trace team ensured there were check-in sessions to find out how I was adjusting to the environment and the new role assignment. Their approach is ALWAYS wrapped with some ‘TLC’ – simply put – Talent Trace is the ‘Woolies’ of placement agencies (but even better).

They’re premium quality.

Shadi Ndala, Business Analyst HR, , PPC Cement [Candidate]

“Heena has successfully placed several candidates in various financial roles from Management Accountants to Divisional Financial Managers. She takes the time to understand the required role, our needs and the calibre of candidate. This allows candidates to quickly settle into their roles and perform at the required level (as if they’ve been in the role for much longer).
