Some people just know that they are destined for great things…

We can help find them.


You can find anyone online, but are they super-hero material?

We can help find them.

Top talent and awesome companies want to connect but both are usually super busy being successful at what they do.

We are in the business of identifying, locating, and evaluating some of the strongest professionals in their field.

Busy high-performance individuals are generally not “actively” looking, however, most of them will keep their ears and eyes open to exploring strong opportunities.

This is where we are hired by some of the finest corporations to identify and separate those individuals who excel from those who are average.

We recruit Middle Management to Executive and Specialists Skills, predominantly for:


In-Depth search and screening

There can be a vast difference between résumé and reality.

After proper research we will approach a candidate, our aim then is to reveal how a given candidate fares compared to their peers, we thoroughly examine their level of skill and expertise and confirm their experience and qualify their achievements. We find out about their goals and motivations, expectations and ambitions.

Quality not quantity

Our approach is to carefully hand select and present only high performance professionals who will do the job effectively and make a strong contribution to the business.

Staying in front

We strive to stay in front of technical and recruitment advancements and provide ongoing training and development for our team.

Meet the Team

We remain an organisation run by professionals, for professionals.

Sharon Hone

Managing Director

Completed her tertiary education in London, before training and working at one of the UK’s leading recruitment companies, where she achieved the position of Branch Manager of a busy London office.  She joined Drake International after relocating to Johannesburg, where she successfully managed and grew their Temporary division for their Flagship Sandton Branch.

Sharon then co-founded what was to now become Hone Recruitment and Search Specialists in 1991, as an independent recruitment and search company. She attributes its continued growth to a passion for the business, a commitment to always strive for excellence and the initiative she takes to gain a thorough understanding of the uniqueness of her clients business and being able to locate real talent through an ever expanding network of business professionals.

Frances Hone

Recruitment & Search Assistant

As locators and evaluators of high-performance professionals. We do not believe in sending our clients large number of candidates, but strives to send you the right candidate.  We hand select 2 or 3 high performance professionals who will do the job effectively.

Long-term relationships

We are client need driven … Our real end goal is keeping our client and candidate happy! For us, it's always rewarding to engage with companies with the same commitment to excellence that we constantly strive for. The result is invariably a mutually beneficial relationship.

But don’t just take our word for it…

Contrary to the popular saying that there are only two guarantees in life – death and taxes, there is a third guarantee that should be added to the list. This third guarantee is that there will always be another recruitment agency promising the world and delivering nothing. However, I am happy to say that Hone Recruitment and Search Specialists serve to confound this cynical view. There is a level of authenticity, trust and respect in all communication and dealings.

Brandon GillhamHR Manager, MWeb

Vodacom has been working with Sharon and Hone Recruitment and Search Specialists for over six years, and they have consistently provided excellent service. Once we have briefed them, they provide us with a shortlist of candidates that could all fill the position – and it just up to us to match the person with the position. We are kept updated with the search throughout the process, and once a candidate has been selected, Sharon ensures that both parties are happy.

S. KerriganExecutive Head Sales & Marketing, Vodacom

When I receive a referral from Sharon, I know I should interview the person, because she makes it her goal to understand the specific type of candidate that we need, as well as understanding the environment where the candidate would work. Neither my time, nor the candidate’s time is wasted when USP is involved.

Dr. Rene NelHR Director, Psitek

Hone Recruitment and Search Specialists delivered high quality candidates who accurately fitted the job description, and the candidates were exactly what we were looking for. I would attribute the success of Hone Greyvenstein to the fact that they took the initiative to gain a thorough understanding of the uniqueness of our business and our culture. It was also wonderful to see Hone Greyvenstein having a passion to meet, and take an interest in, our requirements.

Llewellyn DriverOperations Manager, Discovery Health

I have in the past dealt with many recruitment companies. However, none has ever met the quality service and delivery standards that I consistently experienced with Hone Greyvenstein. In fact, I regard Hone Recruitment and Search Specialists as an extension to our business. Their connections and networks are astonishing, and their values and moral beliefs are of the highest integrity. They make recruitment easy.
