Executive Search in the Middle East
Dubai and the United Arab Emirates are the undisputed economic center of the Gulf region. They host the regional sales hubs of many international companies in the investment, consumer goods, healthcare, life sciences, pharmaceutical, IT and retail sectors.
Cities like Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Qatar's Doha are home to millions of European, Asian, and African expatriates. Due to the enormous increase in purchasing power in recent decades and the massive investments in real estate and infrastructure, the Gulf States are of utmost interest to companies in the consumer goods sector, the construction-related sectors, and the oil and gas supply industry.
The same applies to healthcare and pharmaceutical, professional services, and other sectors that benefit from the consumption power of the state and private players in the region.
Executive Search in the Gulf Region & the Middle East
CT Executive Search focuses on recruiting executives across the Gulf, including the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.
Due to the regional specificity - the Gulf states are especially interesting as sales markets for many international companies - we are primarily concerned with recruiting into sales & marketing related positions here.
Our team also has excellent knowledge of the Iranian market, where we have recruited top talent to a variety of positions following the conclusion of the nuclear agreement.
Our Partners in the Gulf Region/ Middle East
Lebanon and Egypt are hubs for Arab professionals and executives who are popular as "local expats" in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Recruitment processes for these countries should always be approached with a regional view - and we are well positioned for this, with our Beirut-based partner company.
Our clients benefit from the resources and infrastructure of the legal and business consultancy MENA Legal, which is present in Dubai, Ras al Khaimah, Doha, and Riyadh. Our partner MENA Legal offers a comprehensive portfolio of services, which include payroll outsourcing, as well legal consulting, and market analyses.
We also work closely with the consulting firms Persia Associates and Persia Consulting in Tehran.
Please find additional information on executive search, talent acquisition, expatriate recruitment and doing business in the Gulf Region & Middle East in our newsletters.
