HGA Group was instrumental in helping me secure an extremely suitable position, within a company that suits my personality and which utilises my skills. She was extremely supportive of me when I was out of work, offering words of encouragement and giving me valuable interview coaching to ensure that I was well prepared for the interviews for which I attended. HGA Group are not just interested in filling positions , but in ensuring that the candidate fits the role for which they are applying and in my view is second to none with her professionalism and approach.
Harveen and her team at HGA really took on my search for an International role with energy, enthusiasm and integrity; I genuinely felt that I was the project they were working on as opposed to just filling roles and collecting commission. We discussed clients with whom they had strong relationships and looked at which would be a great fit for me and the company and rejected a number of possibilities accordingly. Having put me in touch with Edcon in South Africa, the process was very fast and we got to an accepted offer within 4 weeks. Then came the tough bit – the paperwork and red tape to get through to work permit and visa. Again, HGA walked me through each step of the way, taught me to show patience but act swiftly when needed and the process went as smoothly as possible (I know this from others who have not had the same experience). I am now happily settled in my new role in Johannesburg and the team keep regular contact to see how I’m getting on. They have also introduced me to fellow ex-pats so we can bounce experiences off each other over a few beers. I am very grateful to all at HGA for their diligence on my behalf.
HGA Group were simply outstanding throughout all the recruitment processes that led to my employment. Throughout the whole process, which lasted more than 8 weeks, Harveen was always available to answer questions. Also, she promptly updated me with the progress at all times and this is something one rarely experience with other agencies. Our conversations were real fun and this shows the ability she has to build long lasting trust relationships with candidates.
HGA Group have been an amazing partner for me. Firstly in understanding & identifying the right job opportunity, then in providing highly professional and constructive guidance and throughout the interview and salary package negotiation process. To add on to that, they have supported me with relevant communication throughout my international relocation.
