Our team in Dubai is also made up of consultants with 12 different nationalities, speaking English, Arabic and Russian. With this, we understood any complexities when we hire for our clients across the region. This has given us great success where we currently have contractors and made placements in over 20 different countries from our Dubai office.

 

Beyond that, we placed a massive focus on our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme which have benefitted more than 6,245 people since 2011. Last year, we launched a new partnership with the African Science Academy, empowering females in Africa to attend leading universities and become future leaders in STEM. Our people are also encouraged to take two days of paid leave to engage in a CSR activity of their choice. Through this fantastic CSR initiative, our staff feel like they have a direct impact in the community which helps spark a positive workplace environment.
