Individual Profile – Shirley Smith

Shirley Smith

On returning to South Africa from working in the UK Shirley made an effort to shift her career to marketing and sales roles for 8 years. She held a recruitment specialist role in placing financial staff and then ventured off to advertising sales for print, business television and outdoor in Africa.

Shirley is a qualified Cost Accountant and completed a certificate on Personal Selling with IMM. She comes with years of Financial, HR and Operational roles. Shirley is the Head of Operations and the Executive for Talent Opportunities for Growth in Motion.

She specializes in placing Project Managers, Business Analysts, Project Administrators, Developers, Testers and Change Managers on contracts as well as placing permanent Financial and sales roles that require FAIS Level 1 accreditation.

Shirley is also running the Growth in Motion’s community project called Mind the GAP which is aimed at training unemployed individuals by preparing them for the FAIS examination and try to source employment for them.

She loves sharing life with family and friends and enjoys a good laugh over a glass of naughty. Red or white wine!
