Custom Projects

The World is Custom and So Are We


Custom recruitment projects, especially where speed and volume are concerned are difficult – that’s why we love them. RPO solutions came and went because ultimately cost alone does not represent value. We have added agility to the model with 1st Source.

1st Source

Most Recruitment Process Outsourcing solutions or “Panels” are eventually made moribund by contractual obligations, expectations and reams of policy and procedure documentation. At 1st Executive, we mobilise the power of our networks, deliver a relevant, custom designed team to a specific project whether regional, national or international, complete the project and then move on. We do this, not only for recruitment, but also for advisory, leadership, team building and organisational development.

Or take a look at a couple of examples below.
