MEET ZADE STAFFORD
Tell us a little about yourself?
I was born in South Africa but lived in the UK since high school to University. I have held managerial positions and done recruiting in some form since 2011, but solely within the Oil & Gas industry for the last 6 years. I like to think of myself as a pro-active go-getter who always gets the job done.
I studied at Leeds University (UK) where I obtained a National Diploma in Computer Aided Design.
Fun fact about yourself?
Krispy Kreme Donuts are my kryptonite.
Who is your role model and why?
I would say my Grandfather, He’s a classic! He brought me up since the age of 3 and has taught me so much about life and the most down to earth person I know but don’t cross him, he’s still ‘old school’ when it comes to discipline!
Advice for clients/candidates?
Candidates – Always send us your full CV, as we want to see your whole career. Please don’t leave anything out. Remember to follow-up with a phone call, so that your CV and personality stands out over and above all the other applicants we receive on a day to day basis.
Clients – Please give us as much information as possible when briefing us on job vacancies – the more information we have, the better we can provide you with accurate candidates to match your criteria
Which country within Africa do you think will be the next hot spot and why?
Angola, there seems to be a lot of activity in the Oil & Gas sector and many signs of good things to come.
What is your outlook within your industry over the next 5 years?
The Oil price has risen, we are now sitting at nearly $80 a barrel, this is a major statement for the industry however I think it will take a few years for the industry to make a full recovery to when it was booming at over $100 and drilling & production was in full swing.
CA Global is a big believer in Africa, why do YOU believe in Africa?
Africa is the 2nd biggest continent in the world with an abundance or resources and minerals. It is Africa’s destiny to thrive!
