AMT Placement Services
AMT is a professional Employment Service Provider supplying and managing temporary and permanent recruitment solutions to various industry sectors in South and Southern Africa.
AMT specialises in the supply of both local and International, vetted quality, blue and white collar personnel. With one of the largest professional databases in the industry, driven by our wholly owned, licensed proprietary system ‘Cycad’, AMT is able to supply skilled temporary or permanent workers at short notice, as well as a full spectrum of labour broking and employment services. AMT has been operating since 1987 and is a fully compliant BEE operation.
|Frontline support from any labour broker is absolutely critical. AMT are unashamedly critical of many a competitors handling of personnel on-site and the lack of services they provide, as this is a labour and administratively intensive process. There are costs associated with these on-site||services that are frequently balked by brokers attempting to cut costs simply to get the contract signed, but few are able to supply the depth of processing and management that needs to be applied to ensure all personnel are efficient and performing.|
The Benefits of
The Benefits of Temporary Employment
In South Africa there has been significant growth of temporary employment services or temporary employment service providers as we are frequently referred to and AMT has seen remarkable growth since it was established in 1987.
There are predominantly two main reasons for our success; the first is that the cost of complying with employment laws in South Africa is high, as are the direct costs associated with administration and management when employing. As demand for project labour fluctuates it does not make sense for the business to permanently employ and incur the costs of fixed IR, HR and Payroll Administration departments.
|The second reason is that over the years, AMT have built an enviable database of employees, which can be brought into a client organisation on relatively short notice and deployed to meet client expectations and requirements. When a business or project manager looks to employ permanent staff, acquiring the right skills and going through the traditional employment process associated with advertising processes, negotiations, offers, notice periods etc. takes considerable time; a luxury the project may not be able to afford relative to schedules and demands.|
Dynamic Search with AMT
Dynamic Search with AMT’s ‘Cycad’ System
Our proprietary licensed ‘Cycad’ system houses the largest database of employee data in the industry with over 40,000 active participants and an ever growing number of applicants wishing to register with AMT.
As with any database, it is only as good as the maintenance and frequency of updates it receives. To this end, AMT has a dedicated department of analysts continually updating every single employee’s qualifications and work experience in real time, matching suitable candidates across multiple levels to present to our clients.
‘Cycad’s’ unique dynamic search functionality records every personnel’s track history, performance, remuneration and previous experience along with any extra relevant skill sets or criteria that may be absolutely key to matching an individual to a technical job description.

The AMT Human Resource and Industrial Relations Division
AMT is fanatical about producing records, utilising records and storing records to achieve objectives and to maintain a 24/7/365 record of any employees past and present work records. All employee interactions such as disciplinary hearings or warnings are gathered by the electronic database and will always be on record for future postings.
Again, the success or failure of any disciplinary hearing is about understanding labour law, following correct procedures and having the experience to charge the employee correctly and follow through to the desired result. We guide our clientele and their operations through labour legislation processes ensuring compliance at all levels and under all circumstances.
The need for Labour Brokers
It is interesting to note that in South Africa, albeit labour brokers represent 7,6% of total employment, we represent only 0.9% of all CCMA disputes.
