“ Our investment funds management firm, AFIG Funds, has worked with People Development since 2011 and our relations have grown steadily since then. At the beginning we called on People Development for our internal needs, then following the successful recruitment of staff, we strengthened our collaboration by referring the firm to the companies where we had invested funds. We often recommend People Development to our network of businesses and friends. People Development has thus assisted in identifying profiles for companies involved in various sectors in Senegal and also the entire sub-region.
Yann Hazoume and his collaborators offer quality service in conformity with the highest international standards combined with real knowledge of the local environment from both the legal and cultural standpoints.
The value added through our partnership with People Development seals our collaboration over the long term ”

Africa, for recruitment of a Senior Sales Executive/Business Development Manager for our Regional West and
North Africa Office.
From the outset, People Development provided excellent recruiting services. Candidates were effectively
sourced. The screening of their resume list was done in regular consultation with CAE Mining. Psychometric assessments with screened candidates, resulting in a short list of 3 recommended candidates
that were the most suitable for the position. Their service also included professional references and academic
degree checks of candidates.
As a whole, People Development's services were punctual, effective and clearly communicated ”

since 2011 for recruitment in Senegal either for its own office or for major projects that it finances
such as the Sectorial Center for Vocational Training in Agro-food Jobs for which People Development
recruited all the staff from the general management to the teaching and administrative staff. We have
always received full satisfaction from the services provided by People Development and we willingly
recommend the firm strongly for the seriousness and professionalism of its services ”

“ Our company ORYX Oil & Gas has regularly used the People Development services since we set up our regional office in Dakar in October 2008. At the beginning, People Development was asked to review and define the status of our regional expatriates in Dakar.
The quality of the results of this assignment led us to later entrust to the firm, the recruitment of our of Directors for the East African countries where our company was setting up branches. This job was also carried out successfully to our satisfaction ”

“ People Development provided support for Oikocredit during the entire process for the international recruitment of the Managing Director for Senegal at the end of 2014. As soon as the job offer was ready, we contacted a senior consultant who was available for face to face meetings and accessible by email, skype, telephone and even outside regular working hours! We really appreciated the firm’s responsiveness in the preparation of the technical and financial proposal, the supply of shortlists of candidates and the selection reports submitted. Our request was an unusual one. We had to do a second round of search and adjust the HR profile. People Development adjusted its search to our new criteria, which were more specific, while providing us with HR advice so we could meet our recruitment goal.
The salient points of the firm’s services: Scope of the search at both the local and international levels and the advanced psychometric tests. They were highly appreciated!
Moreover, the quality/cost ratio of services was such that we could not have found such quality of work elsewhere with senior consultants readily available and at that level of fees ”
Yves KOMACLO, Regional Director – Oiko Credit.
