Unlocking South Africa's Top Talent

for Local and Global Companies

At Progressive Edge, we’re all about finding amazing talent for companies across South Africa and beyond. We’ve got the experience to recruit top-notch South Africans for South African, European and USA-based companies, whether they’re staying right here or embarking on an international adventure. Plus, we have quite a bit of experience helping international organizations expand their SA hubs when setting up shop in South Africa, taking advantage of cost savings and a talented local workforce.

We’re not just limited to permanent placements either – we’ve got contracting services and payroll management covered too, although we only do this for long term assignments.

Whether you’re in need of a premium executive search service or contingency-based recruitment, we would love to meet with you for an exploratory chat to see if we are a fit for each other.

Candidates - Looking for work

We specialize in connecting experienced professionals within the Tech industry to exciting career opportunities that align with their expertise. Our focus is on mid-level to executive-level roles, and we are passionate about helping individuals advance their careers in this niche.

While we are a small team and unable to schedule individual meetings with every candidate, reaching out to us and indicating your interest often leads to further discussions, as we may have suitable opportunities within our client network. We highly value every interaction and are committed to supporting candidates in their career advancement.

To explore potential opportunities, you can visit our available jobs page and follow us on LinkedIn for regular updates.

Would you like a dedicated senior recruitment team laser-focused on filling your roles at the same cost as a contingency search?

Engaged Search Services

Our engaged search service is the ideal solution for companies who value doing it right the first time, and who want a professional committed team focused fully on their opening/(s). Our senior specialist team has the ability to identify and secure the best candidates, with a strong commitment to quality, will represent your brand professionally. This service involves paying a small portion of the estimated fee upfront, signaling the client’s dedication to a successful outcome with us and allowing us to invest the necessary time and resources into a comprehensive, high-quality search. 

To maintain our client relationships and reputation, as well as our success rates, we will not take on an engaged search unless we are confident in our ability to find the candidates you are looking for. Where we feel there is a misalignment in role expectations, budget, company or team fit, we will decline the engagement.  We will discuss this in detail with you during our discovery session.
