BIO:
I am determined to bring the ‘Human Element’ back into today’s Recruitment Process as I believe it has been lacking for too long now! I believe that people are the core building blocks of every business but that doesn’t mean that we can treat every ‘block’ the same. I have over 10 years’ experience in the Recruitment Industry and I have specialized in the IT Applications space for most of this time. Before starting my career in Recruitment, I taught unruly children in London; operated a chairlift in the USA and taught people to Scuba Dive in SE Asia.

I am currently in an In-house Recruiting role which allows me to focus on my passions for Employer Branding; Tech Sourcing and Social Media Marketing. I also love presenting about these topics and sharing my knowledge, and experience, with others.

My non-profit Side Hustle is co-hosting South Africa’s longest running Twitter Chat, #JobAdviceSA. This is a weekly chat that has helped several Youth to put a CV together; to interview better and to find jobs. My mantra is “Life is too short to work in boring jobs….” The same attitude can be applied to the way I have lived my life and how I tackle each day.

When I am not in work mode, you will probably find me having a lekker braai with family & friends, preferably in the Bush or at the Beach :) You are most welcome to connect with me on Twitter & Instagram too - @Van_Raath

Vanessa is knowledgeable, and passionate about what she does. She is relaxed and candid in her approach, and yet oozes with information that changes the way you do Recruitment. I could 'sit at her feet', so to speak, and soak up her enthusiasm and passion to be a game changer. Awesome

She was just awesome, i learnt a lot that i didn't know about searching techniques for AI that i am planning to utilize in my field. I liked her personality as well, it helps to add humor to the talk so people don't get bored. Really enjoyed it, would love to attend another talk of hers.
