About Vine Recruitment

Vine Recruitment was established in 2008

Vine Recruitment is the most trusted recruitment agency for permanent job placements in the Boland. Based in Paarl, the company represents the beautiful Winelands area and therefore aptly aim to be the vine that connects compatible employees and employers. About 75% of our clients and candidates are based locally. However, most of our clients have a national footprint and we assist them with their recruitment needs countrywide.

As news is spread “through the grapevine”, Vine Recruitment aims to be the metaphorical “grapevine”, serving as the channel of communication between job seekers and employees with staffing and recruitment needs.

Our focus is to build lasting relationships with our clients and candidates. The vine also symbolises growth and we strive to offer individuals and companies the opportunity for growth and development. We take pleasure in providing personal service to you – our clients and candidates. Our ultimate goal is to meet your needs and help you bloom.

Annemie Engela

Owner & CEO

Annemie Engela is the owner of Vine Recruitment and has about 15 years’ experience within recruitment. She started out by recruiting teachers in the UK.

After relocating back to South Africa, she recruited health professionals for the overseas market and thereafter moved into generalist recruitment. As Annemie has a passion for people and business alike, it was simply a natural progression for her to start doing recruitment.

She enjoys empowering people, and sees recruitment as the ideal tool to live out this passion partnering with both employers and candidates.  “We have the ability to have a real input in people’s lives with what we do. What a privilege and responsibility.”
