“Nannies in Training” with branches in Fourways, Johannesburg and Pretoria, which she still operates as the founder and owner today.
Marinda’s skillsets in business management, searching, resourcing and skills development has provided her with the platform to take over the ownership and management of Hunter Gatherer Consulting, focusing on the acquisition and placement of specialist skills and management across the private and public sectors in South Africa.
