“I am truly grateful to have come across NGO Recruit”
‘First and foremost, I received a call not more than 30 minutes after pressing the send button emailing my CV to NGO Recruit. Before I could even process that, I received a call from a consultant (Ashley) asking if I was available for a telephone interview that very evening. I then received a call from Dela (the Managing Director) to say that she will be conducting the interview. Speaking to Dela was like talking to someone I already knew. I felt she understood the development industry quite well, which made is easier for me to express myself and communicate the passion and the challenges that exist in the NGO sector.
It is difficult to articulate the plight of the poor. It is even more difficult to relate one’s experience of working with child neglect, woman abuse, working in spaces where basic amenities are non-existent to someone who has not worked in such spaces. This for me is what sets NGO Recruit apart, they are able to identify the passion that is required to do the kind of work we do in the community development space, because they themselves have done it; their very existence is based on ensuring such people are the ones that fill the seats in such crucial roles.
Their communication is personal and there’s almost a comradery towards the cause of developing Africa. You are not made to feel as if you are the begging party but an equal partner in the process. You get the sense that the process is about whether this is the right career choice for you and if you are a cultural fit for the organization they are matching you with.
I am truly grateful to have come across NGO Recruit and know that this is only the beginning of my relationship with them, NGO Recruit is my perfect career partner.’ – Nomzamo Matodlana
