Marnel de Waal


Ursula Jurgens


Gretchen Senekal


Derrick Reynolds


Marnel is the Director/Owner of the business that started QES in 2009. Her business knowledge of over 25+ years coupled with highly experienced understanding of various industries has been a key factor in the successful growth of QE Services. She is very passionate, caring and runs the business with a tight fist but with integrity, honesty and professionalism.  Her motto in life is “Treat everyone fair and everyone is important not matter who you are” She is the mom of the office, always willing to listen and willing to give advice if asked.


Ursula has been with the QES-family from the beginning in 2009 and has proven to become a big asset to QES.She manages the recruiters and is in full control of the Recruitment side of QES. Her style is that of Professionalism and “calmness”. She is very process driven and between the different styles of the recruiters, she is the one that keeps the recruitment office on their toes. Her positivity and love for people is just some of her strong attributes.


Gretchen has joined the QES-family in 2010 just after our name change. She has moved from being the friendly face that greets you at the office into the role of Account Manager and visits our contractors and clients. She remains the “control-freak” of the office and rubs off on the newbie teaching her how things needs to be done. She is an eager leaner and therefore makes it her business to know everything about everyone. She is a perfectionist at heart and therefore her motto is that of “rather to early than to late”.

Derrick has joined the QES-family in 2011 and is one of our recruiters. He has his own style and often come to the office dressed with hat and all depending on his mood for the day. His recruitment style is different from all the rest and his “stalker” approach ensure him to be in touch with his candidates 24-7. He keeps in touch with his candidates for years and so do they which is a very good attribute. He is passionate about everything he starts and will go to the extreme to live out that task and make his dreams come true.

Craig Jan


Nicole Engelbrecht


Craig is one of our recruiters. He is a very deep soul and tends to silently sit behind his desk and laugh quietly at all the nonsense we tend to speak. He has never worked in such a Afrikaans culture BUT it only took a while for him to remember his Afrikaans roots. Craig loves the sweet things in life and we can’t wait to hear on a Monday what dessert his mother spoiled him with on Sunday! He might be an introvert but now and again the extrovert peeks out.

Nicole is the new ‘baby’ in the office. She joined us with a lot of passion and she managed to bring some of the introverts out of their shells. She loves to take care of everyone and we sometimes need to remind her that one can only drink so much coffee. She is the voice you speak to when you phone the office and handles all the typing and other administration duties for the office. She loves Harry Potter and still has a strong inner child. She loves playing computer games and is surely to be tough competition to all the gamers out there

What others say


From our Clients...

From our Contractors

"QES has been one of Glaciers main supplier of quality I.T. contractors for the past 6 years. It is always  a pleasure working with them as the service is excellent and the quality of candidates the we get from QES rarely disappoints. QES’s business proposition is not “body shopping”, as they truly care about the contractors as people and ensure that they remain happy and motivated, which enables us as the end client to realize the benefits.."

Hewan – Head of IT  - Glacier

I have been dealing with QES for some time now, especially with Marnel who is passionate about recruitment. What is appreciated is that Marnel on a regular basis will visit her staff and client to check how they are fitting in, their progress etc, which is appreciated. Candidates would be matched to client’s requirements. QES staff are friendly and are efficient in dealing with any client queries.”


Chris Tomlinson – QA Manager - MWEB

I have been associated with QES for a number of years. QES has a unique ability to understand an organization, a department, and to match candidates well with needs. I have also found that due to their own Systems experience, I get candidates who really do meet the level of expertise  I require. QES also keeps well hooked in with it’s contractors and with the organization, which ensures that we have ongoing high performance and contractor content. QES is my first port of call when I need staff.


Jessica Cooper - Head: Current Systems Retail IT - Metropolitan



"During the recruitment phase Marnell and her highly skilled team  kept us extremely well informed with continual feedback and prompt replies to any queries we had.


The resources they provide are always of the highest caliber.


We would highly recommend Marnell and her team to any prospective clients."


Eugene - QA Manager - Infocare Health

“QES provides Project Manager and Project Coordinator services to Santam.

QES is very supportive through weekly personal engagement with each contractor working at Santam. QES responds effectively on resource demands with quality resources. They demonstrate sound understanding of Santam’s unique requirements and is always available to address questions or challenges.
I have found QES very reasonable and negotiable; also willing to engage and take responsibility to have difficult discussions.

I would recommend QES as service provide for PM and PC roles.”


Marelize Visser – Head of Portfolio Management Centre – Santam

“I am always greeted in a warm, heartfelt way by everyone in the team, a testament to a great business. Incredibly organized and consitent.” – Craig

“All I know is... QES has a special place in my heart and came at the right time when I was retrenched and I still remember Marnel’s words when I was nervous about the interview at MWEB. She made me feel safe and confident. That’s why deep down I’ll always be a QES developer.’  – Lwando

"A happy friendly service that applies themselves in assisting the personal needs of each individual."  - Donovan

“QES is without a doubt my agency of choice. The client is always taken care of, the money is always in the bank, and you are always looked after. All of this is done in a very personal one-on-one way with full access to the highest levels of management, which makes quick work of any problem that may arise.”  – Francois

“Looking for employment and job opportunities can be a struggle to for jobseekers, especially after completing one's studies. Through QES, I was given the incredible opportunity of beginning my career with a company that has a friendly environment and one that promotes career growth and skills development. So far, I have enjoyed every moment of it. QES goes the extra mile to make sure that its contractors are happy. In return, I make sure that I give my utmost best to uphold QES's name.” – Siviwe

“QES…….. there is no better partner to help managing your career.” - Olive

Exceptional Service!! I was trying to find a job for a few months and most of the agents that called me didn’t even bother to read the first page of my CV. Then came a call from Derrick at QES, he knew exactly what I was doing and wanted to do. He organised an interview the next day with their client and within 2 weeks I had a job! QES believed in me and went out of their way to help me. I can’t remember the exact timeline, but it was super quick – Jeanne

"In n vreemde stad, het ek n familie ontmoet. Hulle het vir my gehelp om werk te kry, na my belange omgesien en het dit alles gedoen met ope arms en altyd n glimlag van tevredenheid op my gelos. Ek is dankbaar om deel te wees van die QES familie" - Matthys

“One of the best contracting houses I have worked for” - Danie

“QES is an amazing company! I was referred to QES by a friend and accepted a permanent contracting position, from then it has been one of dedication, commitment and professionalism from QES.

During the next 2 years I felt that they really understood what I wanted and needed as a senior software developer which made me feel part of the QES family.

I will proudly refer any developers or IT professionals in general that are in the job market to QES. While(true){I Love QES;

Mid Year Functions=Legendary;}” – John

“QES is an excellent “matchmaker”  - jobwise …Am very happy with my current assignment!” – anonymous

“QE Services is more than an established contracting house filled with staff; but a home filled with family. The care taken by each member of the QES team to ensure each of its contractors is well kept goes beyond the stipulated rules of the business. And at the helm of the business lies one individual, Marnel de Waal, that has not only changed the face of the contracting game, but shown to be a tremendous force in that specific industry. You never truly become an employee of QES as you will soon learn that in the end of it all, QES works for you; and they do so with such excellence.” - Vinesh

"QES is an energetic and enthusiastic company that ensures both the contractors and client’s needs are met" – Christo

“QE Services makes a point thereof to make the contractors feel comfortable and needs met. Between the frequent visits by Marnel, the random gifts she brings and the excellent administration from her staff, they foster a feeling of wellness where each contractor is an individual, not just a number” - Paul

“QES: A great Family with many opportunities in the IT industry, especially for young Graduates” – Mxoleli

"QES :  Quality and Efficiency = Success

The single key component that sets QES apart from the rest is its genuine concern for the interests of both Client and Contractor.  This inevitably ensures that they source the best equipped human resources, qualified to best perform their Clients’ needs, while at the same time providing their Contractors with excellent, highly motivating support. This combination cannot but translate into QUALITY & SUCCESSFUL results for ALL concerned -  Client, Contractor and QES.   In short,  QES provides a WIN, WIN solution for ALL!" - Faiqah‏
