Debbie Spencer, General Manager
Born into the service industry, Debbie began her career as an Executive Assistant to the General Manager and Managing Director of the Lord Charles Hotel in 1988. Her interest in people led her to the appointment of Regional Human Resources Officer with Distell in Bloemfontein and shortly thereafter, she was headhunted by the Adcorp Group and was naturally cultured into the specialised world of recruiting. Having acquired the staffing contract for the first outsourced Telkom Call Centre in Bloemfontein, Debbie went on to recruit and manage staff for First National Bank, throughout Gauteng. After returning to the Helderberg in 2003 and a nine year stint working for a local, generalist Recruitment Agency in Somerset West, it was inevitable that Debbie would start her own business and Talentseeker was created. The Company was an instant success and the process of rebranding and building Spencer Rogers Recruitment Consultants, began in October 2013. With 20 years’ experience in recruitment management, Debbie’s expertise lies in understanding roles within business and matching both the culture and the skills of the candidate. debbie@spencerrogers.co.za
