Meeting with MB & Assoc was a critical juncture in my professional career in the NPO sector. They have a rare and intimate understanding of the specialized nature of human capital needs and requirements of civil society organisations operating in South Africa. In my view, they have a unique insight of how applicable labour legislation, qualification frameworks, wages and benefits andand benefits applies to, and impacts on specifically the NPO environment. She is an outstanding professional in her field, yet I experienced her approachable and down-to-earth. I am of the view that Annelie is currently setting the bar with regard to this specialized field of recruitment and hence it my pleasure to recommend her and her agency with the fullest of confidence. I look forward to working with her in the future.

MaraisButton & Associates was first introduced to me by a referral from a medical associate in 2013. Since registering and working with Annelie Marais the excellent and professional services she has provided to me have yielded only positive results. These off course have translated into significant tailored contracts and long term work as well as being part of her amazing network of opportunities that she is so good at sourcing.  What distinguishes this bespoke agency is her personalised service, the “can do attitude” and the really honest feedback that she provides after any interviews or introductions.  Honesty in such stressful situations lends one to personal development which leads to success further down the line.  As well she is the only agency I know in South Africa that answers her calls no matter what and responds whether negative or positive.  I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her and will support her have her representing me going forward.

Developing and engaging with MaraisButton & Associates can only lead to positive career moves

They have extensive knowledge and experience of the NPO sector. I worked with Annelie and she has good judgement and is intuitive when it comes to placing candidates in positions. Annelie understands the specs sent to her by clients and does not put forward people for the sake of putting them forward and making a commission. When you approach Annelie about seeking employment she responds positively and searches for the appropriate position for your qualification, skill level and experience.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Maresa Fourie. She was so supportive, motivating and highly professional during our collaboration. She prepared me extremely well for interviews, kept in constant contact at each stage of the recruitment process and updated me promptly on the progress of my application. Maresa went beyond the call of duty and did an excellent job in finding the right role to suit my skills and personality. Marais Button would be my first recommendation to anyone looking for opportunities in the NGO sector.
