You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.
We have a lot of water, and we need a couple of thirsty horses to join us at the river. But... we are a tribe of unicorns, because the work we do is magical and niche, and out-of-the-box. It is communication in all its glory as an art and a science.
The question is: “Are you a thirsty unicorn?”
DevCom is an international award-winning consultancy that uses the power of communication to change companies, individuals and communities, to deliver business results and social impact.
We blow bubbles. We dress up, occasionally, and we care for ourselves.
We value diversity, so our tribe include men, women, all races, all religions, and many tribes, from many different regions.
We all have one thing in common: a love for our country and continent, fueling the passion for the people we work with.
We do fieldwork in rural areas and deliver business results in boardrooms.
We do research as a non-negotiable point of departure.
We serve several multi-national corporate clients with excellence.
Candidate requirements You have to:
Have a suitable qualification in communication or business studies.
Drivers licence and ability and willingness to travel – we use our unicorn wings a lot.
Own reliable transport.
A can-do, nothing-is-too-much, I-will-learn-not-leave attitude.
The ability to find information and connect the dots better than anyone else you know (theoretical name: systems thinking – in die volksmond, common sense!)
An internal locus of control, and the ability to work towards long-term results.

Interview, physical interview, and stay-for-a-day.
