Exactitude Consulting is a Level 2 BBBEE company, 51% black women owned with 125% supplier recognition.
Established in 2009 by seasoned consultants who worked in a global consulting firm and shared a vision. A vision to coordinate a network of professionals who genuinely care for their clients by offering excellent consulting value in areas where we have significant expertise and experience. A vision to care for the consultants that we work with, and the staff that support them, in noteworthy and practical ways.
The company has established consistent consulting relationships with many blue-chip multi-national and public sector clients as well as a high caliber of independent consultants. We continue to seek ways to make our value offering current, relevant, practical, and differentiated.
We are value-focused and deliver ethical, professional, and high quality work. Our business model provides experienced consultants who deliver from day one. We work closely with our consultants in a transparent way to identify the most suitable role relative to their personal circumstances, ambitions, skills, and remuneration requirements.
Clients and consultants get the flexibility they require in that we rapidly supply the right people, when they are required, at a competitive rate, and we never compromise relationships.
Our integrity means we own our mistakes; we are not perfect. Projects are messy and we are not afraid to do what it takes to get the job done. We work congruently and our challenges do not become yours.
