Varsha Dolatrai

My family have been instrumental in shaping my core beliefs and values, my parents were exceptionally hardworking and taught my siblings and I to help and cheer other’s success.

At a young age, I was fortunate enough to work in an entry level Recruitment Administrator role for a UK based company allowing me to fund my studies. Whilst juggling work and studying I graduated with a BCom Honours Degree in Marketing.  My introduction to recruitment made me soon realise that people fascinate me! Their career aspirations and personal development inspired me to be part of their journey.  There is something so soul fulfilling knowing that I assisted a graduate to land their first dream job or securing employment for a single parent that was finding it tough to make ends meet or just to hear an ecstatic voice when offering a candidate a role that’s going to take them leaps and bounds in their career.  Fast-forward and 16 years later I am making the most of the recruitment space, I LOVE WHAT I DO!!

Kirsten Labuschagne

“Firm but fair”. This statement describes me perfectly. As someone who comes from an accounting background, I have learnt what hard work entails and all about being committed and loyal and serving with responsibility and purpose.

Recruitment is a new field that I have come to love and enjoy over recent years. The thrill of placing a candidate in a role they are excited about or having clients’ happy with our service, is complete job satisfaction. I am being pushed out of my comfort zone on an ongoing basis and I love how this adds to my own personal development and growth.

I look forward to the future and seeing where Premium Placements will go. The future certainly looks bright and exciting!
