Seeking your next role in the Middle East?

Has your UAE contract come to an end? Or maybe you have decided that you’re ready for the next step in your career? It can be tricky as an expat to navigate your way through the United Arab Emirates, Egyptian, Saudi, Qatar and Oman employment markets.

Services we provide to clients within the UAE

Our clients are based throughout the UAE and further afield, across Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Abu Dhabi and Dubai,  Sharjah, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain. Many clients seek our expertise to achieve promotion within their current organisation,  secure a a challenging role with another company or simply to enhance their online brand with a powerful LinkedIn profile

We provide professionally written, job-generating CVs, fully optimised LinkedIn profiles and intensive career and interview coaching, all vital to your success.

Thank you for the excellent and dynamic CV and LinkedIn profile you have prepared for me. The achievements you have included reinforce very positively my experience and competencies. The result is very impressive.

I.B. ... Director of Finance, Switzerland

I am pleased to report that I just accepted a job as IT Operations Manager where I will manage a small team in London and Zurich.

Thanks again for your advice and brilliant wordsmith expertise refocusing my CV which played a significant part in getting the first interview.

C.H. ... IT Project Manager

I wanted to thank you for your great help! Devin has done a fantastic job writing my CV and Cover letter.

I had been invited for a couple of interviews last year. In December I got an offer from a top Swiss transport provider for a Manager role, a company I always wanted to work for. They even offered me to work 80%. I have started the new role in January and so far I am super happy.

With your help I was able to change industries (getting out of the financial services sector), working for the No 1 employer of Switzerland and to negotiate less than 100% 🙂

Thanks again! I have already recommended your service to a couple of friends and one is already in contact with you!

J.A. ... Manager, Switzerland
