Our Story

The 60D Journey

60 Degrees has grown through a series of introductions between like-minded individuals. Here there is a shared belief in impacting people’s lives through work and a vision of creating a more responsible recruitment business. Having led agencies and large multi-national corporates, our Directors, Ishpal Bansal and Brad Bloom wanted to create a business that not only had clients at the heart of what they did but moreover, supported its own people across their professional and personal lives and crucially, acknowledged each of our candidates’ individual circumstances and career aspirations to ethically support their career transition.

To support this ambition, we embarked and secured the best and brightest minds in our industry to deliver exceptional client and candidate advisory services and securing the best talent, fit for both our clients and candidates.  

Today, we have seen exponential growth and have the privilege of working with an incredibly dedicated team who are impacting lives across Africa, Europe, the UK and the Middle East.  

Our Name

What's In A Name

Why 60 Degrees?  We wanted something that was current and had meaning.  The name is based on the regions we cover: these run from 0 degrees to 60 degrees longitude.  From our hubs in London, Cape Town and Johannesburg we offer candidates mobility across the UK, Middle East and Africa.  We bring expertise and regional knowledge to our clients operating in these geographies, or who may wish to enter an emerging market.
