Looking Back Across 200 Years

The passage of time and the speed of change and technology, has brought about monumental change to job titles, types and job descriptions

Looking Back Across 200 Years

According to a recent article written by Vivian Giang, the following were 9 jobs that we may have recruited for 200 years ago, but have now disappeared:

She writes: ” Imagine writing a job description for a chimney sweep.
“Must not mind getting more than a little dirty and the possibility of getting stuck…in a chimney.”
Well, if you were living 200 years ago, that’s the kind of role you might be recruiting for.” 

Look who is celebrating their birthday!

Hire Power is!

Look who is celebrating their birthday!

Way, way back in 2000, this little all-ladies outfit of Jeannine, Cherri and Tanya, set out on an intrepid journey of discovery and purpose.  The job market was buoyant, morale was high and we were making a name for ourselves.  We set out with the express intention of always acting ethically, maintaining an uncompromising level of integrity, and with the firm belief that as a recruitment agency, based in Port Elizabeth, Hire Power was important, because it would be the vessel that would match the right person to the right role, so that both client and applicant would be, at the very least satisfied, and the very most, utterly motivated, content and prosperous, in their new working arrangement.

Across almost two decades, Hire Power has had the privilege of being staffed by the most loyal and hardworking individuals one could have wished for.  Our company has witnessed the rise and fall of many a business.  We still service most of the original clients who supported us in our formative years.  We have also been blessed to have placed several candidates not only once or twice, but sometimes thrice, throughout their careers, and we remain grateful to have played a part in their lives and the lives of their families.

As is not unusual, this company has also grown and morphed, stretched and trimmed down. What is remarkable however, is that through its lifespan, the essence of who we are, and what we stand for, remains unchanged.  We still believe that by placing people, we are changing lives for the better.

Monique and I wish to thank those of you, clients and candidates alike, who have and who continue to partner with us, for your loyalty and in many cases, your friendship and support.  Today we celebrate from the heart.
