I am responsible for the Engineering & Technical desk across a number of markets within Africa. These disciplines and markets can be very candidate driven as they require niche skill sets that are in limited supply and high demand. At the same time, global commodity prices can also drive the projects and hiring requirements of my clients. Africa boasts over 30% of the Earths natural resources which provides for an exciting mix of opportunities for a staffing specialist such as EarthStream.

What values define the way you work?

Honesty, Commitment, Drive , Hard work

What excites you most about the industry?

New large scale projects in remote regions of the continent and advancements in Technology to enable these projects to go ahead.

How do you work with clients?

My interest is in their business operations and what they do in Africa. Not just from the resources they mine or power plants they build, but what they do for the communities around them.

How do you believe EarthStream supports your endeavours?

EarthStream boast real synergy between all of it offices globally and consultants within our network speak to each other regularly which seems to be the most immediate USP to our customers.
