Viv Gordon Placements (VGP), Cape Town's premier recruitment agency in the communications industry has turned 18.
Coinciding with the coming of age of VGP is something just as exciting to celebrate and that's the wealth of positions currently available to web designers. This exciting resurgence reflects the growth and recognition of the web as a formidable business tool in South Africa and the globe.
Viv Gordon, founder and owner of VGP enthused about turning 18 and commented on the revitalisation in the demand for web designers, "We've been inundated with positions for designers working specifically in the digital domain. The internet as a tool for business is finally being taking seriously in this country and the demand for 'creatives' to help convey this is something we at VGP are really very excited about."
The post 2000 slump after the initial brouhaha over the connectivity provided by the World Wide Web appears to be a thing of the past. Companies are reliant on their online presence, using the tool more and more effectively to pick up new and fortify existing business. "It's great to see that web design is getting its due as an emergent career option because we have so many talented South African web designers just waiting to weave their special brand of magic," says Gordon.
VGP opened its doors in June of 1987 and has enjoyed measurable continued success. As a result it has grown into a powerful player in the Advertising, Marketing, Publishing and Public Relations recruitment arenas, securing placements both locally and internationally, which ensures the best available opportunities for candidates.
As a niched boutique agency, VGP has been providing years of 'in-the-field' experience and extensive contacts delivered with that special, personal touch that has afforded them the opportunity to be such vital players in the communications recruitment industry.
