Who We Are

Staff-X is a privately owned South African boutique talent resourcing company comprised of a highly experienced and committed team that will always seek to go the extra mile in order to exceed expectations.

We focus on long-term relationships (being a ‘partner’ rather than a mere ‘provider’). If a client’s needs are more ad hoc in nature, we will still gladly be of assistance.

Our roots go back to pre-2008. In early 2016, we refocused our business to maximise growth in our chosen areas of operation.

We are a BBBEE Level 4 recruitment company and a proud member of APSO.
