We had a huge challenge of acquiring experts across different industries, countries and languages. Further to this we were hiring for a small remote island with all the complications around relocating people there. Robyn takes the time to understand the role and our needs and managed to successfully source candidates for these positions.

Robyn has been my “go-to” person for recruitment for the past 6 years. She takes the time to understand the company (client) and the position, she sends through applicants only once she is happy that they meet the requirements and always communicate concerns if needed. I have recommended Robyn to my clients in the past and will continue to do so.

About Us

The RCV Difference: We Provide Candidates Not Applicants

RCV was started by Robyn Lamb, Cynthia Zomba and Vuyo Sothondoshe, three South African women who have come together to form a BEE level 2 company specialising in recruitment with a 51% Black African female ownership.

We come from different backgrounds that mirror those of our clients, a factor we believe helps us to understand different people’s hopes and fears and put them at ease. This factor is backed by home- language fluency in English and isiXhosa, and expertise in a number of different fields such as Oil & Gas, Financial Services and Renewable Energy.
