Here at Holistan, we decided NOT to open up any applications for candidates to join our team. Instead, we carefully selected professionals who know and trust, and whom we know will deliver the 5-star experience you, our client, has been accustomed to experiencing.
Meet our amazing team below.
Gina and Marzenna have had a fruitful working relationship as consultants at an assessment agency for the past couple of years. Gina is an exceptionally talent writer, and expert in the realm of psychometrics, so it was an obvious choice to pick her as part of our niche team.
Gina is a qualified and HPCSA registered Psychometrist, achieving Cum Laude during her studies. She has extensive experience working at the big Psychometric Agencies in South Africa, and has managed an impressive portfolio of clients.
Gina is passionate about assessments as she believes the information one gains from such cannot be seen from your typical recruitment measures, such as interviews and cv screening. She thrives when she is given the opportunity to develop others, and helping people realise their true potential. It’s no wonder this led to the birth of The Assessment Hub, which offers solutions for B2B and B2C. Her offering encompasses psychometric assessments for selection, development, career guidance as well as coaching and mentoring.
As part of the of the Holistan team, she will be one of the key consultants offering end to end Personal Branding solutions. Should you be assigned Gina to support you, you are in for a real treat!
Candice is thriving under the Human Essence brand and is a sought-after professional. It is thus an honour to have her support the Holistan team in our Personal Branding solutions.
Candice has a Psychology Honours degree from UCT and a B. Psych (Psychometrics) qualification from UJ. She is a Registered Psychometrist and Coach, with extensive experience working in Talent Identification, Training and Development.
In her capacity as the owner of HUMANESSENCE Consulting she uses Psychometric Assessments to help businesses identify the best-fit candidates and empowers individuals and teams to reach their full potential by facilitating self-awareness and growth through coaching and workshops. She also provides subject choice and career guidance to high school learners online. She enjoys working alongside adults as a Career Coach in a one-on-one format, and as the facilitator of her signature “Launch with Purpose” programme. She has experience working with people across a variety of ages, cultures, job roles, job levels, industries, and walks of life.
Candice believes we all deserve to live a meaningful life, and that her purpose in life is to help others identify and work towards their own purpose.
Michelle Comber is an exceptionally talented editor, word artist and writer who lives and works in Johannesburg.
Her and Marzenna Almendro have been working together for the past 6 years as consultants for an assessment house, and so she was the obvious choice to join the Holistan team as Professional CV writer.
Michelle has been freelancing for the last six years, editing and proofreading marketing and educational material, corporate reports, essays and theses. Michelle in fact was recruited to proof-read the book “Chasing the Dream: A Guide to Practice Management in the South African context” almost five years ago.
She comes highly recommended by Holistan; rest assured when booking your Personal Branding project and being assigned Michelle - you are in safe hands!
