Voted SA’s No. 1 Recruiter: Medium Category for 2016!

We’re a bunch of girls and we’ve got I.T. down!

Why? Because not only do we like to talk, we listen. It also means that we’re flexible, highly skilled at multi-tasking, …and not afraid to ask for directions. After all, how else would we have got to know so much about I.T? In fact, after more than 100 000 conversations with you (and you, and you), we think it’s safe to say, we know a thing or two!

We can do anything boys can do... and better!

You see, we’re not just “girls”, we’re strong, resilient women and we’re passionate about what we do. After all, with more than 20 years experience between us, you can bet your bottom dollar that we know what we’re talking about when it comes to IT recruitment.

Our approach includes a combination of web-based marketing on industry-specific job boards, a dedicated team of experienced resource consultants approaching our own database and a great emphasis on networking, word of mouth and headhunting activities specific to each role we work on. In other words, we’ll do whatever it takes to get the right candidate for you.

So why 101 Careers? Well, as we said earlier, we like to talk. After all, there’s nothing better than a good old conversation to really get to know people. You see, we take the time to really listen and understand your business like nobody’s business. And it’s because of this, that we’ve built up some amazing relationships with top industry players that allow us to call on an unrivalled pool of resources whenever necessary.

Based in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, we make a point of meeting all our local candidates face to face, while our national reach (with a focus on the Western Cape) sees us placing talent around the country.

Meet the Team. And yes, we all throw like girls...

When you're happy, we're happy!

Any excuse for a bit of bubbly…but especially when you’ve just landed your dream job!

It’s feedback like this that reminds us why we do what we do:

Burnette met with Michael Doutchevitch in February 2014. He was a Senior Developer / Team Lead of an IT business in Umhlanga. He wasn’t actively looking for a new role, but was interested to know which Senior C# Developer roles were available. He had a strong skill set within C#, ASP.Net, SQL, JQuery, JavaScript, HTML, Linq, WCF and much more. He wanted to work for a company where there was more room for growth and the opportunity to work on larger projects. He has ultimately outgrown his previous role. Burnette took the time to understand what was missing from his current role and what would qualify as a fantastic new role for him and his future career. Burnette discussed companies of choice with Michael and they came to an agreement to send him to only Derivco as they had the perfect position for him at that time. He was employed and started in September 2014. His feedback was as follows:

My job is going very well. Derivco is a great company to work for, and I am enjoying it. My experience with 101 Careers was great. Burnette was professional and understanding of my position, and what I would need in order to change jobs. She managed to tick all the boxes, and meet all my requirements, such as the company I wanted to work for, my salary package and the position I wanted. I would recommend 101 Careers to anyone looking for a position in software development.

We like to think that we focus on quality rather than quantity and would rather place a person in a role they will love and stay in, than just send their CV out everywhere we can. We are very passionate about meeting people and discussing their ideal role when they have outgrown their current role and knowing that when their ideal role does come along, we can comfortably put them forward in full confidence that it is a great match for the client and the candidate.
