Exciting New Era for Nicolene Di BartoloExecutive Search


Recent Company News

We are pleased to announce that the Nicolene Di Bartolo Executive Search Division (NDBES) has rebranded to their own unique personal brand, following 5 years in association with an international search organisation.

The reputation of Nicolene Di Bartolo’s companies in South Africa assures employers and executive talent a truly reliable and personalised executive search service; with deep knowledge of local and African markets.

The Executive Search division was first launched in 1999 and was selected by an international association (at the time the 5th largest in the world) in 2005 to become the sole representative and partner in South Africa.

A strategic decision to resign from the international group was made in September 2010. This decision has prompted exciting and positive changes, including a shift in focus towards offering a more selective, personalised and niche service and strengthening of the internal skills pool.

Nicolene Di Bartolo, MD of the NDB Group says, “We have retained and continue to nurture our established international relationships we have built over the years.”

Nicolene mentioned that the association with the international group definitely proved that NDBES’ quality of service is well aligned to international standards. NDBES is therefore extremely proud to state that employers can expect a proven “world class” service delivered by a sophisticated search team with deep knowledge of emerging African markets and access to international talent through our global relationships which are immediately on-hand to assist.

“A common mistake often made by international organisations expanding to Africa is their insufficient understanding of the African continent. Within recruitment there is much to consider and understand about local markets in order to be effective. A large percentage of expats working in Africa are sourced from and via South Africa, so it is extremely important to know the candidate market locally. NDBES has a strong South African focus and are specialists in recruiting for emerging markets,” says Nicolene.

The organisation offers clients the following expertise:

The remarkable reputation of the NDB Group is once again proven in a comment made by an HR Executive to management that NDBES was recently consulting with. “You are in good hands!” Another recent reference says, "Nicolene is one of the few recruiters - real headhunters - that understands the value of long term relationships, both from a client and a candidate perspective. She takes time to understand her candidates' needs and her clients' requirements and does not attempt to merely fill the position without regard for the consequences. Nicolene understands the fundamental principle that a candidate today is a client tomorrow."
This we believe says it all.
