This also includes Senior Executive Service (SES) and Board selections. 
Our consultants have considerable experience in working with our Public Sector partners, carrying out responsibilities such as:

AMARecruit’s skilled consultants utilise clear, transparent processes to ensure an objective audit trail is available throughout each assignment.

Consultants regularly consult with their clients and provide progress updates to ensure project clarity and equanimity.
