Optimal Employment Equity Solutions

Almost 20 years ago, we first began to develop prime employment equity capital for the Financial Services industry. We have a proud track of placing prime employment equity candidates, facilitating their first jobs in Financial Services and maintaining long-term mentoring relationships with them as they built their careers. The success of this strategy is evident in the number of Capital Assignments candidates who, after breaking first ground in Financial Services in 1995, are now captains in the industry.

Financial Services’ finest headhunters

We pioneered exclusive executive search in South Africa in 1995 when we opened doors to solely serve the Financial Services Industry. Our experience in our chosen market is unmatched and our expertise in executive search is unrivaled. Executive search is our sole focus.

This approach is a major commitment that we make to you.

We get the results you want

When one of our headhunters takes on your search assignment it demands all of their intellectual capacity and time, as well as their ability to accurately comprehend the complexities of the ever-changing market. We don’t take that commitment lightly.

No matter how challenging the assignment, we leave no stone unturned in delivering the results you want in the time that you want.

We find employees who truly engage

Executive search is not just about finding any worthy candidate. We make sure that we understand the strategic needs behind your search, and then relate those to our candidates’ goals and aspirations.

As executive headhunters, we know how to make the right connections between the right people and the right Financial Services organisations.
