  • Prides itself in the placement of Specialist staff with South African and International companies
  • Personalised and highly focused service
  • Permanent and Executive Jobs
AKA Brip Careers Worldwide was formed through a merger between AKA Recruitment International and Brip-Africa in 2018.  AKA Recruitment International was founded by Sylvia Rapke in 1995, trading as German Placement Specialists and was later relaunched as AKA Recruitment International Pty Ltd in 2013. That same year, Koenigsteiner Agentur GmbH (www.koenigsteiner-agentur.de) became a shareholder in AKA Recruitment International. With nine offices across Germany, Koenigsteiner Agentur GmbH specialises in HR Marketing, Advert Management and HR Services. Through close cooperation, AKA Recruitment International is able to benefit from the great expertise and network of Koenigsteiner Agentur, assisting them in growing their European/ Foreign language procurement channels and thus facilitating the attracting, sourcing and placing of suitable staff from Europe in South Africa.

Brip-Africa was founded by Miriam Bracht in 2015 and launched itself in the foreign language and IT industry in Cape Town before merging with AKA to form ABC Worldwide in 2018.

As a member of APSO (Association of Personnel Service Organisations) AKA Recruitment International adheres to the national standard of professional conduct and is kept fully abreast with rapidly changing labour legislation and practice.
