The first dedicated, self-service recruitment-platform for Nature, Culture & Adventure guides all over Southern Africa!

Why Choose Recruit a Guide

We are a dedicated recruitment platform for nature, culture & adventure guides, developed by industry specialists.
We use cutting-edge technology to streamline the recruitment process, saving all involved both time and money.
Video CVs give operators a far better sense of “who” their applicants are, instead of just “what” they do.
Developed by specialists with more than 10 years’ experience in the tourism industry, we – at RecruitAGuide – understand the challenges faced by both guides and operators when looking for the perfect match. That is why we are pioneering a platform, using innovative technology, to streamline the recruitment process in the Tourism Industry
RecruitAGuide’s mobile app gives guides access to video CV technology, allowing them to express their personalities and demonstrate their strengths, showing operators a true sense of who they are. Our online portal also allows operators to use industry-specific matching criteria to find suitable candidates. Watching a video résumé allows employers to connect further with candidates, even before holding an interview.
RecruitAGuide’s personality-driven approach will shorten the recruitment process, saving all involved time, money and patience!
