Vacancy – Senior General Manager




We do this by employing talented people to join our talented team, thereby ensuring that we hit the mark day in and day out.

Due to our current success and growth, we’re looking for a General Manager (GM) to join our team at our Cape Town offices.

This is a senior management role, for which we need an equally talent-obsessed individual who can help Status continue to develop and grow.

The role requires strong leadership, by focusing on growing and developing our team, as well as someone who has a target-orientated character.

The GM will manage our talented departments and teams, at a strategic and an operational level, in order to achieve Status’ ambitious vision and objectives. In this role, you will oversee the operational management of the entire business and you’ll report directly into the Managing Director (MD).

At Status, we specialize in talent acquisition and staffing solutions for the BPO & Captive Contact-Centre sector and the Financial Services sector.



Our operations teams service our clients in these two sectors by focusing on: the sourcing, assessing and placing of candidates – whether for bulk-order recruitment campaigns or for specialist once-off vacancies at our clients.See our INFOGRAPHIC for more on our specializations.

If you are the perfect person for this position, then you will have:

  • A proven track record of leadership & management success, ideally within the recruitment industry (but we are interested in applications from candidates outside the recruitment industry);
  • Experience managing all aspects of a business, including Operations, HR, Finance, Sales & Marketing;
  • Bucket loads of ambition;
  • A tangible desire to lead & grow the right people the right way.

If this describes you, then this just might be the right career opportunity for you – doing rewarding work in our fast growing and successful business.
