We recruit for all our specialist areas of internal audit, risk, compliance, cyber security and resilience, legal and treasury. During this time we have gained an in-depth understanding of the Middle East market, how best to source the most appropriate candidates and the logistics and processes involved in moving people within the region or attracting them from the wider international market.

We work with a wide variety of clients in the region that include international and local banks, sovereign wealth funds, financial services, government organisations and a diverse range of commercial and industrial companies. Assignments are undertaken on a retained exclusive, contingent or interim basis and we will advise on the best approach to any recruitment challenge.
