Dear Valued Clients and Esteemed Member Agencies

AHASA is thrilled to announce and celebrate a momentous occasion – the 30th anniversary of the Allied Healthcare Association of South Africa (AHASA). As an industry body for Healthcare Recruitment Agencies, we are celebrating three incredible decades of dedication, growth, and unwavering commitment to standards in healthcare recruitment companies.

As AHASA commemorates its milestone as the esteemed industry body for compliant healthcare recruitment companies, we are excited to unveil 30 Great Milestones to Partner with AHASA Agencies.

Milestone#1 is our unwavering commitment to legal compliance and industry standards.

AHASA member agencies stand as paragons of trust, having diligently registered with the Department of Employment and Labour as Private Employment Agencies (PEA) or Temporary Employment Services (TES). This dedication ensures that our member agencies operate within the legal framework, providing clients and agency members with a foundation of reliability, transparency, and professionalism.

Compliance is non-negotiable

In a landscape where compliance is non-negotiable, AHASA member agencies stand out as the gold standard. In AHASA effort to ensure top-notch service to clients, AHASA members must undergo rigorous screening annually to ensure compliance with all legal requirements for agency operation.  See table highlighting TES Governance Checklist for clients
