DAV is exceptionally well established - the oldest permanent recruitment company in South Africa - with a history of repeat business and long standing relationships with clients and candidates alike (our network of key players is unparalleled). This has led to the DAV brand becoming exceptionally strong and recognised brand. In fact, we are a multiple award winning company, recognised as the best by candidates and clients alike.
Both DAV Johannesburg and DAV Cape Town's attractive, energetic and inspiring offices are centrally located. Johannesburg in Sandton and Cape Town in the heart of Woodstock.
The minute you walk through the doors you'll feel the warmth and vitality. DAV people LOVE what they do, they get to work excited and filled with energy every day. After all, it is deeply rewarding to - every day - change someone's life for the better.
We believe in equal measures of professionalism and fun. Our weekly company meetings are an experience of note. We celebrate every achievement, sing happy birthday in people's own languages, and generally have a good time.
DAV is deeply invested in our country (have you read our pledge?) and we are all committed to community involvement and giving back - both on a corporate and on an individual level.
We have at our heart a deep commitment to our values, each of us takes these values as our own and we bring them into every aspect of our lives: they are so much more than just words on a piece of paper.
It's a business, of course, but we feel like a family.
I've grown so much as a person and as a professional. This company has allowed me to reach so many goals for myself professionally and personally.
DAV is fanatical about training and about growing and developing people. Over the last 35 years we have given 100's of South Africans the opportunity to become all they can be in intellectually stimulating and financially rewarding careers.
The highlight of recruitment is that it's a business that gives you the opportunity to run your own business without the risks. With the support and structure of an established company behind you. And the potential to excel financially in a team backing you every step of the way.
Upon joining DAV you are given extensive training on the A-Z of recruitment. Our training is unmatched anywhere else, benchmarked against the best in the world. Mentoring once you hit your desk ensures you are fully equipped to grasp success as fast as you want. We also train on an ongoing basis every Monday, and often have guest speakers and trainers from all over the world, giving us access to international trends.
Our salary structure works on a basic plus (uncapped) commission, and we assure you that you can earn exceptionally well at DAV. Research conducted in 2006 shows that we pay by far above market related rates, so the more you put in the more you get out. It's also a very incentivised environment - you are instantly rewarded for hard work.
We also train and mentor personal growth. We encourage individuals to grow as people, which in turn grows them as professionals, making them even better partners to our clients and candidates and to their colleagues.
Recruiting is demanding but also endlessly rewarding. Rewarding from a monetary point of view definitely (we offer uncapped commission, monthly, annual and travel incentives, all in addition to a salary). Our consultants earn so big that they often have fully paid for houses and cars at an age most people are still paying off student loans. But also rewarding from a sheer job satisfaction point of view. There is no feeling at all quite like helping someone move their life in the direction that is perfect for them.
So if you get a real kick out of helping others realise their potential, you love the idea of being part of a company committed to making a difference and crave financial freedom, apply now. It would be a privilege to meet you in person and show you around our offices (we'll visit our millionaires wall).
Tebogo, in addition to just having been promoted, is currently studying a PMD through GIBS and will begin an MBA in 2012.
He has this to say on his years with DAV:
I have never forgotten my interview with Joan, back in 2003, nor my career forming years with DAV.
I just need to express my appreciation of the ‘timeless’ skills that I learned at DAV. I am a proud product of DAV’s values, and practice of those values continues to take my career to greater heights. I have just been appointed to head up the Business Analysis Area, which comprises 3 complementary sections.
This I achieved because DAV invested in me close to 10 years ago, and the fruits of that investment are far reaching.
