Expansion on the horizon for Salt South Africa – Johannesburg is next!

Salt South Africa Expansion

London, Cape Town and Johannesburg, Nov. 6, 2020 Salt, the global digital recruitment agency specialising in Creative, HR, People & Talent, Marketing, Sales and Technology roles is continuing to expand its offering into Johannesburg, South Africa’s ‘city of gold’.

This comes after Salt part-acquired Recruit Digital in March 2020 in Cape Town, to form ‘Salt South Africa’. After only seven months, Salt continues its expansion into Johannesburg, South Africa. This expansion marks significant growth for Salt South Africa as well as making this Salt’s 12th global office with office locations in every continent.

But why Johannesburg?

Many of Salt’s global clients including Facebook, IBM, Google, Microsoft and NTT have established bases in Johannesburg. Salt deeply values client relationships and is therefore important we are close to our customers to expand our South African footprint.

Salt CEO Elliot Dell comments: “Our vision is to create futures for our customers globally and to deliver this we intend to have offices all over the world, with Africa being the obvious next step. Following the success of the Cape Town office, Johannesburg is the natural progression for our South African team.”

Johannesburg is the biggest city in South Africa with a growing population of 5.7 million people and is a hub for all economic activity. This translates into a high concentration of talented people and is a natural progression for Salt South Africa MD Alex Martin and his growing team. To help pilot this new venture, Alex has appointed Senior Principal Consultant Tshego Moroka to take the lead into the Johannesburg market.

Alex Martin, MD Salt South Africa adds: “The office will be located in what is known as the ‘fastest-developing commercial hub in northern Sandton…’ With our focus on scale-ups, start-ups and new digital products, we will be expanding our client portfolio and customer base across Johannesburg.”

“As a key driver in the success and growth of our team over the last three years, and with his focus in data, business intelligence and digital architecture, Tshego is fully equipped to assist our Johannesburg clients in the digital tech space in building teams as well as place C-level positions.”

“Tshego has had a great journey at Salt, consistently delivering excellent customer service and was recently promoted to Senior Principal Consultant making him the obvious choice for what lies ahead.”
