I met Lizelle Hamann at a time when I was feeling very despondent about my career. I was unhappy and frustrated at work. The last thing I felt like was speaking to another recruiter. Not only was Lizelle professional but she injected me with her sense of vibrance and enthusiasm and after our meeting I was re-energized and felt there was more out there for me and my career. A few months later she found me my dream job at a Top 10 SA company with a better package. Thanks Lizelle.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Lushia in the capacity as a Candidate as well as a Client. She was professional, motivating, honest, and responsible with a high degree of integrity and proficiency in her delivery. I therefore highly recommend her without reservation. I sincerely wish her the best in her future endeavours”
I have worked with so many recruitment agencies but have never experienced such human interaction and professionalism, Lizelle made me feel more than just a number especially in the tough economic crises. I was very impressed with how she engaged with me, kept following up on me which most recruitment agencies did not do; Lizelle has really set the bar high. She is very passionate about what she does, even more she cares for her candidates wellbeing which for me shows compassion that it’s not just about the numbers. She cares about getting people placed in the right field, which they want and have their best interest at heart.
"Lushia is a professional and very competent recruiter. She took the time to understand my career aspirations beyond just matching my skills and experience to a job spec. Lushia´s expertise and negotiation skills have helped me secure an excellent job opportunity at one of the top multinational companies within 6 weeks of starting the process. Lushia supported me throughout the process and continued to check on me even after I was successfully placed with my new employer. I always recommend her services to my acquaintances and have absolute confidence in the service that she provides.
I just want to express my gratitude towards Lizelle. This testimonial is a token of my appreciation and to commemorate her for the excellent service that she has provided. My needs at my new job was not only reached, but exceeded the standards I expected. From the initial greeting with Lizelle I was astounded by her professionalism and passion. Her level of diligence in her work is nothing short of amazing. My confidence was immediately restored and her support helped me to ace the interview that landed me the job. Lizelle followed up with me sometimes twice a day and mediated perfectly between myself and my new employer. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to handle my negotiations. Lizelle I just once more would like to thank you for treating me like family and did much more than you needed to, to accommodate me as a client. There should really be more recruiters with your drive, business ethics and motivating attitude. Thank you so much Lizelle! You rock!!
I have had the great pleasure of working with Lushia for many years. She is extremely knowledgeable about the industry and highly passionate about her work. I find her to be very energetic, proactive, strategically minded and superb at networking. I have no doubt that her company Luelle Consulting will gain significant market share to become an industry leader in the near future.
I would like to extend my gratitude to Lizelle for my current placement. My experience with her was unlike any I’ve ever experienced. From the warm, relaxing welcome that I received to the professionalism in which the interview was conducted to understanding my personal and professional needs. Not to mention looking for and finding me the ideal offer as promptly as you did. Keeping me updated on all developments with the potential employer. I am truly grateful and privileged to have worked with you and wish you all the best of success.
“Lushia is a very driven recruitment specialist who goes the extra mile for her candidates/clients. Her passion for what she does and her tenacity set her apart from the rest.”
Upon first contact Lizelle created an open, safe and unbiased forum, encouraging me to be both honest and realistic in communicating my job search needs and desires. As a candidate, I respect her unique and direct approach as I knew we saved valuable time by focusing our efforts on the best matches – finding the ideal Employer for the Candidate and vice versa. After Lizelle had secured my first offer at a large Listed Company in 2013, I remember thinking, “She is persistent, and I’m so grateful to have her fighting for me!” Take note, she arms her candidates as well… Extensively preparing us before each interview, this included important need-to-know details of the company, her past experiences with said company and interviewers, detailed directions to the interview location, as well as general interview etiquette, attire and providing guidance on how best to approach possible common interview questions. These aided interview preparations helped boost my confidence, allowing me to concentrate on the specifics of the position and its related duties. To this day, based on her industry knowledge and my past experiences working with her, I still feel comfortable enough to contact Lizelle for her professional opinion prior to making any major career moves. I can therefore guarantee that I will recommend using Lizelle’s recruitment services to anyone looking to further their career, in fact I have already done so with a number of friends.
“My experience with Lushia was the best experience I have ever had with any employment agent. She understood exactly what I was looking for and kept me motivated throughout the interview process. What stood out most for me is the after placement interaction which to this date is still ongoing.
She was exceptional and I would highly recommend her to any professional seeking an employment agent”
My experience was a great one indeed! As Lizelle showed so much professionalism and kindness in assisting me with securing a job suitable to my qualification, experience and preferences. She was one of the few friendly professionals I have had a privilege of working with, who displayed care for me as an individual and not just a “product”, I must say I felt more than just a client – which is what I needed at that time of pressure, since I was working on a contract post that was about to end and did not know what the future held for me. That extra mile of warmth from Lizelle kept me patient and hopeful. I have no doubt that her character will take her to the top in the kind of profession she is in – dealing with people.
Completing your CA(SA) is an exciting journey but also all planned out for you, going to one of the big 4 firms or a small one is one of the biggest decisions in the process. Making the jump to move out of audit was massive and at the same time super scary for me. Lushia made this jump both fun and adventurous. I felt comfortable knowing she has my best interest at heart and she “got” me from the start.
I was initially very impressed with Lizelle’s enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanour when she interviewed me. She then blew me away by the demonstration she showed at getting me an interview for my current employment and the way in which she prepared me for the interview. All of these qualities and more are the reasons why I heartily endorse her as a recruitment service.
“Lushia has been amazing in securing me great roles in finance. Her ability to coordinate and secure me interviews with potential employers was first class. I have made use of her services three times since 2012, the first time being a relocation from Cape Town which she handled very efficiently and professionally. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone who is serious about a career change.”
I highly recommend Lizelle Hamann as a professional, diligent and extremely competent consultant. She was able to assess me as a candidate and provide professional advice thereby Enabling me to find the right position and to identify the key criteria I was looking for in my next role. Lizelle is always well organised throughout the recruitment process, kept me regularly updated on issues that came up. She is very friendly and always willing to help.
I’ve worked with Lushia van Buuren for over a decade and have always been impressed with her world class approach and ability to sustain a high level of professionalism. Lushia has been excellent in quickly finding appropriate employment for me. During the global economic crisis (2007/2008), when jobs were hard to come by, Lushia swiftly found me interesting and challenging work that fitted in with degree that I had completed the year prior. Later in my career our paths crossed and I was fortunate enough to be placed yet again by Lushia within an environment that mirrored my love for philanthropy, sport, fashion and family relations. I can recommend her services and expertise without reservations.
Working with Lushia was amazing. She cares more about peoples careers more than they do themselves. She makes it her own duty to find one a career that she knows one deserves. She is fair. I can recommend her to anyone anytime should a need arise
I highly recommend Lushias services. She is always on the ball and provides individual attention. She definitely goes the extra mile to find you something that is the perfect fit for your skills and personality.
