Global executive headhunting alliance expands to South Africa
The leading global alliance of executive search firms, IRC Global
Executive Search Partners, has expanded its presence into South Africa.
IRC recently confirmed that it will partner with Cape Town-based Jack
Hammer Executive Headhunters as its local member firm.
“Jack Hammer fulfils IRC’s commitment to serve clients by way of an
ever-widening global executive recruitment platform,” says Sylvia
MacArthur, President of the Executive Board of IRC Global Executive
“IRC is committed to the highest possible standards in management
recruitment services, and we believe Jack Hammer’s unique style and
fresh approach fit well with IRC’s global executive search boutique
Debbie Goodman-Bhyat, founder and managing director of Jack Hammer,
which focuses on the placement of top-level executive managers, says the
firm’s success stems from its ability to balance business acumen with
empathy, strategic research and tenacious energy.
“We are delighted to be accepted into the globally influential IRC
alliance,” says Goodman-Bhyat.
“Increasingly, companies look for the right fit when recruiting
executive talent, in addition to the right qualifications. Culture,
values and personal style are intangible measures, and IRC’s approach,
which is global yet sensitive to localised imperatives, fits our vision.
Goodman-Bhyat says that Jack Hammer’s recent entry into the IRC alliance
means that the company is able to offer both a global service to its
clients, as well as local insight and support to IRC member firms
seeking exceptional candidates in South Africa.
“In South Africa, business revolves around mutual trust. At Jack Hammer,
we respect that by not sourcing candidates from client companies, not
encouraging job-hopping, and not headhunting candidates who have been
with a company for less than a year. We are completely committed to
delivering valuable and lasting talent solutions for clients and
candidates, and look forward to being able to offer value beyond South
Africa’s borders. “

Debbie entered the field of recruitment in 1998 with a financial
services headhunting firm, and within two years became one of the most
successful headhunters in executive search in SA. In 2000 she
established her own executive search firm, diversified the industry
focus, and then rebranded the company in 2004. As the founder and
Managing Director of JACK HAMMER, she is an industry-leading headhunter,
placing top executives in SA’s blue chip large and medium-sized
corporates. Her unique style and vision may perhaps stems from her
