DAV started in 1975 when a one-woman placement business opened in the heart of downtown Johannesburg. With little more than passion and sheer determination, it may have seemed like the business wouldn’t amount to much at first. But there was something extraordinary that captured the hearts of our early clients and candidates and the business soon began to grow.
Today, more than 40 years later, our story is still being written by every candidate, client and staff member who helps to make our company great.
DAV now employs over 120 staff members nationally to help fulfil our promise of excellence to you. Top-quality candidates trust us with their placements during every step of their careers. Blue Chip clients depend on us time and time again to offer expert recruitment across many areas of specialisation. We help shape the future of the professional placements industry on the continent by being a fundamental part of the Adcorp Group, Africa’s largest human capital group.
We take none of this for granted.
Our growth has not happened unintentionally. We didn’t simply stumble on expansion or wander into success. Today we exist because our values are timeless and our vision remains endless. That “something extraordinary” that existed in the beginning is the same reason we’re still expanding today. The truth is simply this: we know why we’re here, we love what we do, and we won’t rest until you have received only the best of who we are.
Yes, we have a story to share. Our beginnings will always keep us humble, our vision will always keep us focused, and our passion will keep us moving forward.
We are DAV and our story is far from over.
