Jackie Bedeker

Jackie Bedeker is the owner and manager of Pillangó Placements. She started the agency as Jackie Bedeker & Associates in June 2000, a year after her introduction to the industry in 1999. Jackie is a BA graduate from the University of Pretoria and is also an Associate of the Institute of Personnel Service Consultants. Throughout her recruitment career, Jackie has proved that she is capable to take on the challenge of recruiting in a wide range of industries. Jackie believes that the success of the agency is based on four essential P's – People, Passion, Perseverance and Prayer.

Rinda Schutte

Rinda Schutte fulfils the roles of both a Recruitment Consultant and Administrative Assistant within the agency. After holding a few administrative positions, she started her recruitment career at Jackie Bedeker & Associates (now Pillangó Placements) in 2006. In 2008, she left the agency to explore other opportunities in recruitment and broaden her skill set, but returned four years later to add her expertise to the agency where she was initially trained and developed. Rinda is an Associate of the Institute of Personnel Service Organisations (AIPSC).
Rinda believes that stumbling blocks on the road to success are inevitable, but they are never insurmountable. She tries to maintain her sense of humour even in the most difficult situations.
In her free time, Rinda likes to read a good book and enjoy time with her husband, Boeta and their two busy girls.


Rita Clegg

Although Rita Clegg is working as an independent contractor, she forms an integral part of our recruitment team. Not only does she capture large volumes of candidate information on a daily basis, but is also responsible for obtaining work references and conducting background checks on candidates. Rita is a people's person and her friendly and positive disposition often motivates our team when the unique challenges of the industry threaten to take their toll on the recruiters' stress levels. Rita had a very successful career as a Marketing Representative, before opening a horse riding school in 2006. She is an avid horse lover. Rita has three children and together they spend quality time on their farm near Muldersdrift. She also enjoys motorcycle outings and loves spending time with friends.
