About HRsource

HRsource is the leading, UAE based, multi-dimensional recruitment and human resources consultancy, with an outstanding reputation in the Digital Marketing, Media & Technology, IT and Telecoms, Luxury & FMCG sectors.

Recruitment is at the core of what we do and delivering outstanding results is our mantra. Hiring the right people for your organization is key to our business and we take immense pride in finding people who will not only add value but also compliment the dynamics of your organization.

Our search skills know no boundaries. Whether or not they’re actively looking for a career move, if we think they’re a perfect match, we’ll find them. In fact, 75% of our hires to date have been passive job seekers, headhunted for their skills and reputation rather than their immediate availability in the job market.

Our consultative approach to human resources also allows us to offer dedicated HR and recruitment services to businesses ranging from SME’s right through to multi-nationals.

Whether you’re a mid-level candidate searching for a challenging new career move or a fast-growing SME looking for that special team player to take your business to higher places, we have the knowledge, the industry-centric expertise and the dedication to make it happen.

Our Vision

To deliver a tailored, multi-dimensional approach to recruitment and Human Resource consulting in the UAE and MENA region, providing the highest quality of consultancy, while utilizing our industry strengths within specific specialisms and to offer outstanding, knowledgeable services to our clients and candidates.

Our Story

It took a chance meeting of friends at London’s Guildhall University to plant the seed for what is now the leading recruitment & HR specialists in the MENA region. This cross of paths during those early University years solidified a friendship and business relationship that has spanned almost 20 years.

While the partners cut their teeth in various recruitment roles after graduation, there was always the urge to join together, to pave the way for an organization that delivered high quality service and consultancy to the recruitment market.

Fast-forward a few years, and the partnership was formed, with two of the friends setting up their London-based HR and recruitment consultancy with ambitions for growth and expansion. After consulting and recruiting for clients in the Middle East, the partners saw the opportunity to create a specialist recruitment company in the UAE, and in 2010, alongside their London agency, HRsource was born.

With all three partners now driving the business forward in the region, their specialisms are key to their multi-dimensional approach to the business of human resources.
