OUR ETHOS

We strive to be the best in all that we do, and that means bringing the right mix of intuition, understanding and impact to the table.We give our clients a competitive edge, because we’re willing to think beyond the now.

Our vision is to be a professional career consultancy group that not only meets, but more than exceeds the personal, business objectives and expectations of our candidates and clients, thereby extracting a more meaningful and permanent value than merely that of a “body shop”.

OUR MANAGEMENT APPROACH AND PHILOSOPHY

EDGE has a holistic approach to Career Management. This approach requires us to have a thorough and composite understanding of the career objectives and expectations of our candidates, in order to successfully and sustainably match these to the most appropriate career opportunity. We invest time with our clients to ensure that we not only understand the skills and experience required for a position, but also the corporate culture of the client, its growth and strategic objectives, and potential-talent mapping for the role and position in question.

Our dedicated, transparent and professional approach to delivering the right results and service, have led to long-term relationships with both clients and candidates. Our clients benefit from an unrivaled level of service. We do not necessarily find a candidate for every opportunity or requirement, or a role or fit for every candidate, but we are proud of our insignificant candidate‘fall-off rate’.

COMPANY BBBEE

EDGE is committed to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (‘BBBEE’), and is proudly accredited as a level 4-contributor.This status allows our clients to claim 100% of the ‘value-of-spend’ with us as BBBEE procurement.

WHAT SETS US APART FROM THE REST?

It’s our passion for perfection, our commitment to cutting-edge solutions that push industry standards and our resolve to revolutionise our industry, giving our clients better, brilliant solutions so that they can push their own limits too.

The winner’s edge is not in a gifted birth, a high IQ, or in talent. The winner’s edge is all in the attitude, not aptitude. Attitude is the criterion for success.
