Gerny Derks

Talent Consultant

My friends, clients and candidates call me “Gernz”, I’ve always been a people person, and this was a major reason for embarking on a career in recruitment.

I joined CloudStream at the entry level supporting a variety of projects until I began to discover my technical focus and subject matter vertical.

It was clear I had a natural affinity with the commercial markets, blending a mix of roles within sales and finance across the vendor and consulting markets.

I love the challenge and variety recruitment brings, every day is a new challenge where you learn something new, expand your knowledge and make key decisions on the projects you work. Most of all, it’s the satisfaction I get from finding someone their next career move and fulfilling their dreams.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends; I’m an absolutely huge dog lover and staying fit and healthy at the gym.

They say home is where the heart is and for me that will always be in Cape Town
