M&D Recruitment is managed by two owner specialist consultants:
DirectorMarlies has worked in numerous positions and over time started to understand how People with Disabilities are treated differently from their colleagues, at work. Marlies’ passion grew into a need to assist PWD’s to be accepted as equally competent people as their colleagues (who do not face these adverse conditions). As such she worked in agencies where some placements of PWD’s took place. This allowed her to see up close how badly recruiting and placement of these special people take place. Eventually she felt compelled to start her own recruitment agency where PWD’s can be assessed and appropriately placed. Marlies is wheelchair bound from birth. Some of her numerous accolades are National Championships for the Physically Disabled-Athletics and Swimming. Southern Transvaal Championships-Athletics and swimming. Junior Sportswoman of the Year: 1992 and Nedbank Trophy for Senior Athletics: 1994. Head girl at school and numerous other leadership positions. It is safe to say that Marlies does not consider People with Disabilities as problematic when placing them in companies – she knows what PWD’s can do, as she has amply demonstrated.
Dewald is a registered organisational psychologist with the Health Professions Counsel Of South Africa. He has dealt with numerous organisations advising on People with Disabilities (PWD). His first in-depth and extensive experience with PWD’s was in the SA National Defence Force where he dealt largely with amputees, fire scarring and blinding as well as deafness due to constant extreme noise generated by weapons (these are some of the disabling conditions found in a low-intensity war scenario).
Dewald holds a BA and BA (Honours) degrees from UJ, a MA (Organisational Psychology) from UNISA, an MBA degree from Wits and a DPsych degree from AIU with a specific focus on Research Psychology for high-nett worth individuals and candidates. He completed further studies in Insurance through IISA, Tax through UJ, Computational and Applied Mathematics at Wits and Quantitative Management at Unisa. Dewald also holds various post graduate certificates and diplomas. He is a registered industrial psychologist, he has extensive experience as a General HR Specialist and is currently focusing on recruitment and assessment of PWD’s and coaching of these individuals, as well as Entrepreneurship and Intrapreneurship. He has authored articles for the SA Journal of Information Management, as well as FA News. Dewald is currently a lecturer to MBA’s at UNISA School for Business Leadership in Change and Creative Management and he also lectures at Midrand Graduate Institute in IR as well as Pay and Reward and at Johannesburg University in Organisational Development.
One of the significant advantages of M&D Recruitment is that we have a national footprint – this means that we have at least 2 branches in all provinces, allowing us to reach potential candidates that would normally only be considered for positions by companies if the candidates are residents in metropolitan areas.
Our branch network can be seen below where our branches are flagged. Candidates consequently do not have to travel far to reach our branches. The Western Cape outlying areas are serviced from the Eastern and Northern Cape.
We have branches throughout South Africa; these branches are administered from Johannesburg:
Eastern Cape: Port Elizabeth, Bisho, East London
KZN: Durban, Ladysmith
Gauteng: Johannesburg, Pretoria
Free State: Bloemfontein, Welkom
Mpumalanga: Witbank, Standerton, Ermelo
Limpopo: Polokwane, Bela-Bela
North-West: Mahikeng, Klerksdorp
Northern Cape: Upington, Springbok, Kimberly, Port Nolloth
Western Cape: Cape Town
