EOH and Cortez supporting sustainable transformation

Education is paramount in building a prosperous South Africa. In order to give back and get involved as a responsible organisation, we have partnered with causes which we believe can help us realise and support this vision.

The right partner for talent architecture

No matter how much planning organisations do, it is difficult to anticipate when critical resources might decide to move on. Despite well-developed internal succession plans, the risk always remains.

Cortez is the executive search and talent mapping practice within EOH Human Capital, a division of one of the leading management consultancy firms in South Africa. EOH is a JSE listed company, and one of Africa’s largest technology guru’s – a true South African success story.

As experts in the art of talent mapping to source critical, senior and executive appointments, who understand the importance of matching the right individual to your organisation, we dedicate a project team to your business who apply our unique processes and methodology to attract the best talent.

Awards & Recognition

Cortez Executive Search was rated as one of the top 10 executive search companies in the country by the PMR Awards.

PMR.Africa completed its national survey of Executive Search companies and interviews were only conducted with respondents of companies that have placed candidates in top management positions.
