McCafferty Financial Recruitment was established in 1997 by Neil McCafferty, who draws on ten years of experience as a career merchant banker in the corporate banking, structured finance and derivatives markets of South Africa. At the beginning of 2008, a ten percent stake in the company was acquired by two black South African women. A further ten percent is owned by women. The company was re-launched as Ubuntu Associates to more fully describe our newly empowered status and focus in the field of executive search and recruitment.

Ubuntu Associatess draws on its wealth of previous experience within the financial and information technology sectors, and an established network that operates in accordance with a code of integrity and confidentiality. Ubuntu Associates has developed a reputation that is built upon the twin foundations of focused professional service and ethical practice. Extensive industry experience, coupled with innovative networking capabilities enable us to provide a knowledge based service.


Ubuntu Associates offers a service that is tailored to the unique needs and particular situation of each client. Candidates are pre-selected through individual personal meetings that are structured around basic criteria. These criteria are determined by the specific requirements of each assignment.

A commitment to finding the most suitable candidate for the appointment, has led to the establishment of a broad data-base of over 55,000 individuals that range from newly qualified, first-time job seekers to highly qualified and experienced personnel in key positions. In the latter case candidates are discreetly approached, the parties are brought together, with Ubuntu Associates acting as a facilitator and mediator. Candidates who meet the specific requirements of an assignment are introduced to the client.

A unique approach that centres on the formation of a collaborative recruitment partnership with clients, enables Ubuntu Associates to promote a two-way relationship based on communication and mutual trust. This ensures that we remain effective in identifying the most suitable candidates for a client's assignment.

To ensure that the rights of clients and candidates are protected, Ubuntu Associates operates within the framework of Labour Law legislation, keeping itself up to date with any developments in this area. Ubuntu Associates protects the privacy of clients and candidates by handling all assignments with discretion and sensitivity.
