"We tell it like it is!"

Our Team

We are a small team, but that doesn’t mean our experience is limited! 

Our combined recruitment experience spans over 40 years and our consultants work closely with each other to ensure that candidates and clients alike receive the very best service and 100% attention to their needs. 

 ELKIE HOLLAND  (Managing Director / Recruiter)

Elkie started Prospectus back in 1988 to provide a specialist recruitment service to the MultiValue community after starting her career in HR for an international IT application engineering and systems delivery company. Elkie is very ‘hands on’ and is still helping  many of the original clients that she started her business with alongside a number of new clients that is growing month on month. Elkie is a true survivor and has never let the many ups and downs that the industry has gone through over the years’ affect her positive attitude. She was also a very early adopter of Social Media technology, (she was testing Twitter long before most people even knew what it was!). 

Elkie’s strength is in networking and over the years she has gained a phenomenal amount of loyal contacts within the industry and she is held in high esteem by some of the most influential people in the business. This could have something to do with the fact that Elkie’s motto “Tell it like it is”. In other words she is honest, ethical and 100% reliable.
