Recruiting executives in the Gulf Region & Middle East

Dubai and the United Arab Emirates are the undisputed economic center of the Gulf region. They house the regional sales hubs of many international companies in the investment and consumer goods, healthcare and retail sectors.

In Dubai, and to a lesser extent in Abu Dhabi and Qatar's Doha, millions of expatriates work from Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. 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, professional services and other sectors that benefit from the consumption power of state and private players in the region.

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 placed a variety of positions following the conclusion of the nuclear agreement.

CT executive search not only works for international clients, but also assists Emirati, Qatar and Iranian companies seeking to recruit expatriates. We cultivate a network of specialists across the Gulf region and the Middle East, who in addition to professional skills also have the intercultural competencies necessary for such tasks.
