More about

The Acumen Team is a small dynamic experienced one that comprises two “head honchos”, Jossie Swanepoel and Ann Hefer, and in-house research / back-up / behind-the-scenes miracle workers.

Jossie has been in recruitment for 15 years, 4 of which she was the Top Performer of an International Recruitment Firm. She cultivated many key accounts that to-date are still exclusive users. Jossie’s strengths remain matching Applicants to Clients where they can have long and mutually beneficial relationships. Networking is her passion ensuring that the recruitment process becomes very cost effective to our clients. Jossie is a true specialist in the recruitment field.

Ann has 25 years experience in the recruitment industry and managed the South African operation of an International recruitment firm. During this time she was responsible for managing, recruiting and training of staff on a National basis. Ann’s industry knowledge and extraordinary people skills resulted in this Company’s revenue increasing by 95.8% during a period when SA experienced a negative growth in the economy.

After much soul-searching, honouring of restraints and thorough market research Jossie and Ann opened Acumen on 1 March 2002 and have never looked back. The support and enthusiasm from clients has been awesome!

Acumen Resources Development (Pty) Ltd currently has preferred supplier status at Hilti International, LafargeHolcim, PPC, IG Markets, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Cummins, to name a few.

We do across-the-board recruiting and prefer to have a handful of top clients where we service them from entry level positions to placing top executives, understanding the company culture and specific requirements needed for a successful match.

Acumen has also been responsible for and involved in the training of all employees of an International Recruitment Company.

We at Acumen are guided by a creed, a way of “doing business” which we feel commands the respect and confidence of both Clients and Applicants.

Proudly South African!
