Carpe Diem recruits according to the needs of the client. Consequently the company recruits candidates for both junior and senior positions in the following job categories:

  • Production and Operations (General Managers, Unit & Plant Managers, Production Managers & Supervisors, Planners)
  • Technical / Maintenance (Fitters, Electricians, Millwrights, Millers, Seamer Mechanics etc)
  • Engineering (Mechanical, Electrical, Industrial and Chemical)
  • Food Technology (Quality, R&D, Lab)
  • Risk & Loss Control / Occupational Health

  • Finance (from CA’s / Financial Managers to Junior Clerks)
  • Marketing and Sales
  • Admin (PA’s, Secretaries, Receptionists)

Carpe Diem prides itself on personalized service. As we are a small company and because we restrict our client base to the food industry, we are able to build strong relationships with clients which allow us intimate knowledge of the client’s needs. We believe that finding the suitable candidate requires more than just identifying an individual that meets the technical requirements of the position. The suitable candidate is in fact one that has both the technical competencies/qualifications and the personal characteristics to function in harmony with the company’s specific and institutional culture. Our turn around time is on average 1 - 3 weeks depending on the type of position.
