Chief Executive Officer
Rebecca started out her career in recruitment and quickly spotted a gap in the market as she began observing more people moving towards contracting. People wanted their freedom within the workforce but had no idea how to equip themselves when it came to the business and administration side of things. She took her expertise gained as an accountant and her strategic business mind, combined the two and Certica was born.
Rebecca is a powerhouse when it comes to ensuring a fair and just workplace environment for her clients as well as her own staff and is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in.
