Hudson’s ability to source talent from its global network of offices and its international database in finance and banking, legal, IT and HR will cater for the wealth of global firms searching for the right talent to facilitate expansion of their operations in the Middle East.
With such a fast-growing economy, staff retention, as well as recruitment, have become important issues for companies based in the region. With this is mind, Hudson will offer a unique recruitment approach which incorporates market-leading assessment products with more traditional recruitment methods. The inclusion of these products ensures that talent is matched not only on technical competencies, but more importantly, on the basis of cultural aspirations, career motivations and approach to work.
Andy Rogerson, Chief Executive of Hudson UK and Ireland with overall responsibility for the Middle East and Africa region, commented:
‘The Dubai market has grown substantially in recent years, and we believe there are excellent prospects for Hudson to expand its reach, both here and more widely across the Middle East & Africa in the future, facilitating further expansion of our business internationally. Dubai’s strong level of growth is predicted to continue apace. As it cements its position as an increasingly important financial centre, salaries and employment
prospects are looking very healthy. Given our finance and professional services expertise, Dubai is the perfect location for the next phase of our growth strategy.’
‘Attracting and retaining talent are the greatest challenges for Dubai, and that’s where Hudson comes in. We will work with clients and candidates already based in the region to enable them to fulfil their talent needs and career potential. The Dubai team will also work closely with other Hudson offices, utilising our new global candidate and job database to respond to the demand for the global mobility of talent. With our network of consultants in major markets across the world, we will ensure that companies and candidates moving to the region can easily capitalise upon the considerable opportunities available.’
