Commenting on the partnership buy out this week, Mike said it provided the ideal catalyst for continued growth in the UAE. He said:
“This is a positive development for the company and we will look at investing in the expansion of the existing offices in Dubai and Qatar, as well as into new branches such as Abu Dhabi. Our expansion will also focus on staff training, and I am particularly pleased that a large number of our consultants have chosen to qualify for the UK Recruitment and Employment Confederation certification to ensure we can further enhance the already high standards of our recruitment practices.”
