IRC Global Executive Search Partners expands to South Africa

Innovative Cape Town firm adds unique value to worldwide boutique executive search alliance


IRC Global Executive Search Partners (IRC), an alliance of executive search firms and a market leader in the global executive search industry, welcomes Cape Town-based Jack Hammer Executive Headhunters as a new member firm. The South Africa company fulfills IRC’s commitment to serve clients with an ever-widening global, multilingual executive recruitment platform.

“Jack Hammer fits really well with IRC’s global executive search focus,” says Sylvia MacArthur, president of the Executive Board of IRC Global Executive Search Partners. “IRC is committed to the highest possible standards in management recruitment services. We believe Jack Hammer’s unique style and fresh approach fit well with IRC’s global executive search boutique capabilities.”

Jack Hammer focuses on upper executive-level management positions. Debbie Goodman-Bhyat, founder and managing director, commits the firm to balancing business acumen and empathy, strategic research and tenacious energy to deliver executive talent solutions with a wining edge.

“We are delighted to be accepted in the IRC alliance,” she says. “Increasingly, companies look for the right ’fit’ when recruiting executive talent. Culture, values and personal style are intangible measures, and IRC’s global yet local approach fits our style. Our membership in the IRC alliance means we can offer both a boutique global service to our clients, and local knowledge to IRC member firms seeking exceptional candidates in South Africa.”

As Debbie explains: “In South Africa, business revolves around mutual trust. At Jack Hammer, we do not source candidates from client companies; we do not encourage job-hopping; and we will not headhunt candidates who have been with a company for less than 1 year. We are completely committed to delivering lasting talent solutions for clients and candidates.”

Debbie is a regular speaker and panel member of conferences geared towards skills development, women empowerment and entrepreneurship.
