With over 116 years of combined recruitment expertise, our comprehensive knowledge of recruitment and the industries in which we operate, combined with our exclusive candidate network allows us to engage our clients by adding value where it counts most – through people.

Unlike many larger corporate recruitment agencies, we do not offer product-based solutions; instead we provide a creative, personal and customised service.
What makes us distinctively different?
We understand your business goals
As a supplier, finding exceptional management talent and support staff for your organisation would be near impossible without a thorough understanding of your operational and strategic requirements. We fully immerse ourselves in the culture and practises of your organisation in order to adequately understand your business goals. We are then able to leverage off this knowledge in order to provide you with intelligent, experienced staffing counsel as well as unique, right-fit talent.
At Pollock & Associates, we believe that exceptional service is synonymous with sound personal relationships with our clients and, is something that has set us apart from larger corporates since inception. We understand the value of mutual trust and encourage it by engaging in one-on-one consultation.
Value adding enterprise
Pollock & Associates understand that reducing costs in your organisation remains a priority and that the pressure is on to run lean, efficient operations. As a result, we seriously undertake to guard your budget against the cost of employing the wrong permanent staff. With this in mind, we continuously work at using the most effective recruitment methodologies in order that you get right-fit talent for your business that will drive down attrition and, that will ultimately see a return on your people investment.
Our unique talent acquisition methodology is built on a foundation of sound relationships with a longstanding, credible network. As such our database of prime talent is made up of ‘best of breed’ leaders. Furthermore these candidates are exceptional thinkers and strategists that are guaranteed to move your company forward, regardless of the department they are hired to lead. And, if we do not have an applicable candidate straight ‘off-the-cuff’, we will then hunt, pursue and seize the country’s best talent accordingly.
