Having the opportunity to join such an exciting new talent provider as TechStream and then design their global talent attraction program was a challenge I couldn’t pass up. Since I completed my HR Degree at University of Stellenbosch in 2012, I have been involved in the staffing sector.
I initially began as a technology recruiter servicing niche vertical such as application development and transformation. This experience gave me a strong technical acumen and great insight into the role and life of a technology recruiter. I am not sure had I not had this experience it would have been such an easy transition into an internal talent acquisition role.
The role at TechStream now means I am responsible for recruitment across all our international offices including London, New York, Singapore, Malaga and Cape Town. One of my most interesting projects has been to build our delivery center here in Cape Town. Every quarter I look for 10 talented individuals from the local market & universities, this talent must have the right credentials to become a long term member of the CloudStream family – drive, determination, goal driven and fun loving. Our goal is to build an amazing talent center.
One of the best things about TechStream is our sense of community, in a pressured environment driven by sales targets it is critical we never lose sight of having fun. Whether this be coming together for charity runs, playing for our football team or just having an office braai, community is a core belief in every office.
