Talent Acquisition Consultant / Human Resources Generalist
My experience as a Human Resources and Talent Acquisition Specialist in companies in South Africa has enabled me to support individuals and teams in their personal development, enhancing team effectiveness, and in addressing critical human resource issues. My approach is to constantly challenge and reinvent the way business is done to keep my clients at the forefront of their industry. By doing so I equip the client to have the capabilities to implement solutions and use them to build successful organizations. As a recruiter, my aim is to source and deliver great talent, who stay longer and have a great attitude towards their company, this is achieved through constant counseling and support to candidates placed.
My tactic is to facilitate workplace conflict, assisting both client and employee to resolve matters, preventing labor disputes, and improving working relationships and communication. Strategically building a workforce and implement sustainable structures with solid policies and procedures.
As Head of HR for Wellness Health Insurance Pathology Services, I led significant recruiting and training of nurses throughout South Africa, was responsible for talent management, strategic business decisions and developed an in-house talent strategy. Prior to this I worked with major retail organizations, holding various positions in human resources. I have extensive experience in training, corporate restructuring, industrial relations, performance management, employee wellness programmes, talent acquisition and development. My key strength is the ability to manage a few projects simultaneously as I thrive on pressure and welcome challenges.
Currently I specialise in sourcing Doctors Internationally and placing Professionals in high-end positions in the Medical, Finance and Engineering sectors.
I am passionate about people and human behaviour and thrive on adding value to Corporations by assisting them with their Human Capital.
I believe in self-development and use my coaching knowledge and Human Resource experience to add value in the recruitment process for both client and candidate.

"Michelle is of outstanding character, highly intelligent, very dedicated towards her client’s goals, and has always struck me as entertaining, with a high degree of responsibility and dedication! Michelle is highly proficient in her work ethic, and always finds the time to accommodate her clients, no matter what time of day or night. Michelle has been available for any queries via telephonic communication, always putting herself second to the client. Her empathy is astronomical, trained in Human Resources with all the know-how! I am extremely happy in my profession and job now, more so than ever before. Just sorry I did not meet Michelle earlier in my career! I would not recommend anyone else! Thanks to Michelle, I am making strides in my occupation, growing from strength to strength! Here’s to you Michelle! I could never show enough appreciation for what you have enabled me to accomplish, and after all these years!"
“Michelle Dos Santos is such a pleasure to work with. She is a ball of energy that is passionate about developing & motivating people. She works hard towards facilitating a productive and fulfilling work environment for all. She has a no-nonsense approach towards sifting through candidates to find the right people who will stay longer, work harder and have a great attitude towards the company. I have called upon Michelle’s services on many occasions and for many different tasks, from drafting contracts, company policies & procedures as well as personality testing and training for staff. Michelle is dedicated and doesn’t skip a beat in stressful situations. She loves people and finds difficult situations a great opportunity for change. She is my go-to person and yet she is so much more than HR, she is a generalist that has big picture insight. Her energy will add value to any business that utilises her services”

Michelle has worked with me on some very demanding, tight deadlines international projects, and I have always been able to count on her and know I will again in future!"
A tailor-made package that suits your Company’s needs and budget based on how many employees you have employed or want to employ.
We are flexible and accommodate all requirements as we have had to modify our business model due to COVID 19, we understand that you did the same!
Together let’s see how we can solve your Human Capital challenges so that your Company can benefit its bottom-line earnings. Through Internationally accredited, online Integrity assessments, we can prevent people with low Integrity to join or be promoted/transferred in organizations.
Why do we do these assessments? To increase levels of Honesty, Responsibility, Accountability, Reliability, and Trustworthiness to name a few, and to decrease Fraud, Corruption, Deceit, Theft, and Collusion amongst others.
The consequence of this is Improvement in Productivity, Efficiency, Morale, and Customer Service.
PGP’s rates are below market average and we are proud to say that we could achieve this by the business model, we adopted so that our clients do not have to pay exorbitant recruitment or consulting fees.
If you have that role you can’t fill and need fast results or a dedicated project that needs professional attention – you have come to the right recruitment firm!
We would love to hear from you!
