Jannie is an excellent recruiter; he is persistent in sourcing, screening and selecting hard-to-find talent ─ in fact, it’s his specialty. Offering highly developed sales skills and acumen, Jannie co-founded Lishiumeka Recruitment Services (the predecessor to Let’s Recruit) in 2009.

After completing his Electronic Engineering Diploma at Vaal Triangle Technikon, Jannie started his career as a Research & Development Technician and progressed into the sales environment after two years. He completed his Sales Management Diploma and is a certified, registered sales professional at the United Professional Sales Association of South Africa. His firm foundation and experience within the sales environment led to 13 years working in Key Account and Sales Management within the Defence, Manufacturing, Mining, IT and telecoms sectors.

“Becoming a great recruiter takes persistence, strategy and the passion to connect organisations with the right candidates. When I started my career in recruitment, I did it with this in mind; listening to what clients and candidates want and need; and I pride myself in helping the industry discover hard-to-find people, working in partnership with my clients. At the end of the day, I want to provide clients with candidates that are going to make an impact.”

Nadia ensures that clients receive personal attention each and every time. She works closely with clients and candidates, handling the details and communicating essential information to both parties, guaranteeing that all communication is handled in a timeous manner.

She entered the recruitment industry in 2007 after a rewarding 7 year career as Executive Key Account and Sales Manager in the Telecommunications sector. She gained experience as a generalist recruitment agent where she successfully managed a temporary employment solutions division after which she specialised in permanent staffing solutions within the Financial Sector.

The combination of her generalist and specialist recruitment experience, as well as her seven years’ experience in Executive Key Account and Sales Management within the Telecommunications sector, pathed and cemented her way to co-find Let’s Recruit (formerly known as Lishiumeka Recruitment Services) in 2009.

“I genuinely care about our clients and candidates. I understand that hiring a new employee is a time-consuming yet vitally important process and from a candidate’s perspective, the decision to change careers can affect every dimension of their life. I take pride in being able to help clients and candidates make the right decisions in terms of career opportunities and hires, and strive to build strong relationships.”

The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.

Vision & Mission

Our vision is to set standards as a market leader in our area of specialization and to continue making a difference, thus improving the lives of our clients and candidates.

Our mission is to continue:

  • using a mentoring and consultative approach in building strong, long-term relationships with our clients and candidates
  • Providing outstanding customer services in a personal, ethical and responsive manner.

We intend to reduce the number of interviews candidates have to go through before finding the right opportunity as well as the number of candidates our clients have to interview before finding the right person for the job.

What our Clients say About us

  • We are an electronic engineering company that over the years has dealt with a number of different recruitment companies in order to source electronic or computer engineers.

Our business is in a very niche sector, and we have an extremely unique culture. Jannie and Nadia have always understood that, and have been able to place staff members who have fitted well within the environment and exceeded our expectations.You will not easy find a recruitment company who will offer you the same personal service to any of the others in the market.
  • The level of service I experienced has been really excellent throughout. I find your regular alert emails on available candidates very useful, your response time to queries as quick, your interaction with the candidates also quick and thorough. You are also good at supplying people with electrical engineering experience, something we do not easily get through the traditional advertising route. I certainly plan to make continued use of your services. Please keep it up!
