Why submit your CV to us ?

Woodburn Mann has been in operation for nearly three decades and is one of the leading executive search and management consultancies in Southern Africa with a number of global executive search firm associations. The primary area of activity of Woodburn Mann is discreet and confidential research based executive search. Executive Searches are undertaken on a regional, national or international basis for very senior and specialist executive positions across all disciplines predominantly in the remuneration package range above R1 million.

Due to confidentiality reasons, we are unable to disclose certain positions, however many of our current positions are displayed on our website.

If you are interested in a specific job opportunity on our site, by completing our submission process your application will be assessed and we will be in contact with you once the process is completed.

Should you not have applied for a specific position on our site, we will initiate the confidential process whereby all of our Consultants and Researchers are made aware of your potential interest in looking at relevant opportunities. Should they be currently working on an assignment that they believe worth bringing to your attention and where you meet the clients specific needs, you will be contacted directly by the Consultant or Researcher.

Registration is simple, quick and efficient. Fill in the following mandatory fields and attach your CV (ideally in a Microsoft Word format).

How long does an online submission take?

Our aim is to make our Candidate Submission Form as easy as possible to complete and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. In order for us to have a better understanding of your roles and responsibilities, we do need to ask about your recent experience. Registration is in 3 categories: Personal Details, Current Employment Details and your two most recent previous roles. You will then be given the option of attaching a copy of your CV.

Applying to a specific online Advertisement?

If you have seen a specific position on our website that you wish to apply for, you may respond to the e-mail address you will find at the end of the web advert and also send your details via the Candidate Submission Form. Note: If you would like to apply to more than one advertised position please send an e-mail to each of the e-mail addresses but you need only fill in the Candidate Submission Form once.

I am having a problem selecting Industry and Function Codes?

Woodburn Mann has categorised the various industries and functions into a number of broad categories. It is essential that these fields are filled in on all online submissions to avoid being overlooked for the current positions on which we may be working.

However, once you have completed the Candidate Submission Form you will receive an automated email response confirming receipt of your submission. You will then be contacted directly by the Consultant or Researcher should they be currently working on an assignment that they believe worth bringing to your attention.

I did not receive an email notification confirming receipt of my submission?

Should you not have received an automated email response confirming receipt of your submission after 48 hours, please resubmit your details.
