The Difference

A Culture of Higher Standards

We especially understand the importance of business culture because we study those of our clients in order to make deals that are a good fit. We strive to keep our employees inspired and always evolving ahead of our business. Whether you are a potential team member or a potential client, we look forward to hearing from you.

Belong & Thrive

I am fortunate to be part of Benchmark International’s team of highly knowledgeable individuals who commit themselves to the process and the client and who all work together to achieve a favourable outcome for the client.

Tiaan Smit
Associate Director

From my point of view, an absolute eye opening privilege to meet innovative business owners from such diverse cultures, sectors, educational backgrounds, and race, all dedicated to driving forward and making a difference in our country. Proudly Benchmark South Africa.

Gerald Latre
Associate Director

I personally enjoyed joining a team where we have structure and a definitive plan. There is a thought process before any task is attended to, this allows the team to have direction and be as effective as possible. No client is the same, and so we are fortunate enough to build our knowledge base amongst multiple sectors/industries, which we can use for future opportunities. All tasks performed are valued by the team and we work as a cohesive unit; most staff members have similar values and interests which makes working alongside your peers a pleasure.

Working at Benchmark has exposed me to many different interesting sectors, some of which I didn’t even know existed; this makes every day a new learning experience to add to my growing book of knowledge.

It’s a privilege and honour to be part of a successful team. It’s great to be part of a company that sets out to achieve its goals in ethical, honest ways with an elevated sense of purpose. There’s a commitment to excellence in working with goal-driven people who are successful, and a good atmosphere with friendly co-workers.
