Our Strengths

Umvoto comprises an exceptional team of scientists and environmental consultants known for their technical brilliance, scientific rigor and feet-on-the-ground humanity.

The importance of attitude as much as aptitude and application, is highly regarded within the organisation and has been the very fabric of Umvoto since inception. Management supports staff gallantly in their pursuits while allowing autonomy for personal growth, to realise the best for both themselves and the company. The senior staff complement is supported by a group of emerging third-generation leaders, many of whom joined the company through the award-winning internship programme.
