About Us

Competition for talent, skill shortages and the ever-growing need for talent.

It’s not about a general ability to find talent or entice candidates, it’s about the specific capability to tap into the pipeline of people with the right skills, culture fit and experience to be successful in a particular organization.


It all comes down to one simple concept – knowing

Knowing where the organization aspires to be, the skills and behaviours required to get there, the culture, what success in each job looks like, where to source individuals who meet those requirements and how to build solid relationships with them.

This is where AJ Connect steps in.
