    Thank you so much for all of your hard work in the back and forth, and being so friendly and enthusiastic with each phone call. I am so impressed by Pro Talent and have already recommended you to a few friends looking for work. I had signed up with a few recruitment companies but none of them gave half as many job options as your company, and in such a short space of time too! Definitely the best recruitment company in Durban in my humble opinion. Thank you so much!
