Patience understands the forces that are driving change in today’s human resources management.

To help clients meet these challenges, Patience and her team invest the time to understand the company, its values and business goals, the current market and the position to be filled. They learn what the client wants, and what the candidate wants. Because individuals with the capabilities best suited for an organisation’s needs are typically not active job seekers, they draw upon their extensive network of contacts in the field, present the opportunity and motivate the candidate to join her client’s team.
