Meet the Express Durban North Team!
Fanie van Heerden
Joined the Express Employment Professionals as a Franchise owner 18 years ago. Still the best career decision I have made.
Our office staff are all very well experienced in the Recruitment Industry, making it a big pleasure working with them all.
I started my working career in the banking industry in 1990 and in 2002 I joined the Express Family, initially as a payroll Administrator/Manager and in 2007 I had the opportunity to buy shares into the Express Durban North Franchise and became a co-owner in the business.
My passion in life is helping people and clients, specifically in the servicing of our clients, this is for me the single most important aspect of owning your own business, because frankly without our clients we are nothing. Our passion for service is also what differentiate us from our competitors.
As a business owner one does not have the luxury of specializing in only one aspect of the business, multitasking is at the order of the day. This comes with many challenges, however with the right employees this becomes a lot easier, and I can confidently say that this business has the best.
Lastly my vision for this business is to grow continuously and to be able to supply work to many more people in the future.

Etienne van Heerden
I have recently joined the Express family as the new kid on the block.
I am currently involved with the Temp department where I am continuously learning about the Industry through all departments within the office.
I am certain this is just the start of a lifelong relationship with Express Employment Professionals.
I have been working at Express for 18 years as receptionist (front office co-ordinator). My greatest achievement is working at a well reputed company all these years. The skills and the knowledge that I’ve gained during my time at Express has enabled me to place customer service first which has added to company growth. I really enjoy spending time talking with people and the daily interactions I experience. The most rewarding part is seeing those smiles knowing that you contributed to that person experiencing joy; changing lives.
