What makes Nico Bezuidenhout the right man for Technical Engineering recruitment?

Nico’s ability to provide spot-on candidates to clients who are looking for rare skills owes in large part to his Engineering background. He holds an Engineering Diploma and is qualified as an Engineering Technologist. He worked in the UK for two years as a Service Quality Manager, looking after the quality of Manufacturing and Service delivery (ISO 9001) in all EMEA countries and had a number of technical teams reporting to him.
