As an economic force, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is an important source of global financial stability, and a regional home to some of the best experts, specialists and industry leaders in the world.
At City CV, we are regularly approached by those living and working in areas such as Kuwait, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who are looking to strengthen their CV and online profile, in preparation for their next career move, either within the region, or in other parts of the world.
We recognise the diverse mix of nationals, for whom English may be a second language, and ex-pats who are living and working overseas. Both sectors have very specific needs and we are uniquely placed to meet them. We have written career-enhancing CVs and profiles for clients from some of the largest employers in the region, including: AECOM, Jumeriah, Maritime and Mercantile, Emirates Airlines and Nokia.
Victoria McLean , City CV’s Managing Director, was instrumental in establishing the MENA region offices for Merrill Lynch and recruited extensively into those offices. Her on-the-ground experience is evident in the hands-on approach to every CV, cover letter, LinkedIn profile and application form we prepare – and is reflected in the large number of City CV clients who are based in the region.
We offer interview coaching via Skype to allow overseas clients to benefit from our expertise despite the geographical separation. Tony Corballis, our Head Interview Coach, is a specialist in language and communication skills for clients for whom English is not their first language, and he is able to equip clients with the tools and techniques needed to succeed in interview wherever they are situated.
