The leading recruiter for analytics roles in South Africa
How does it happen that TSR became the sole recruiting source for the South African office of a global, data analytics and technology solutions company? That they see us as the ‘leading recruiter for analytics roles in South Africa’. Believe me, we’ve given this some thought and done our research, so we know – it is about connecting with the client, understanding their needs and business strategy, and truly partnering with them to fill skills gaps within their business.
