overview of executive search in UAE

A competitive business is always looking for the best employees. The biggest challenge is that these employees are generally already employed. According to research, 70% of the workforce is open to new challenges. Our recruiters use executive search to find these employees. 

For the talent: our goal is to find people a job, career or role that will suit them even better than their current position.

Hanneke being happy

I look forward working with hanneke again

Alert HR is one of the best Recruitment company I’ve worked with. I was able to secure a wonderful job that I’ve been in for 8 years and grew tremendously over the years, reaching the top of my career path in a semi-goverment entity in Dubai. Hanneke Habets was a great advisor and supporter, and I look forward to working with her again.

My biggest fear is not finding a job that is suitable for me, but Alert made it a possibility to find me a suitable job for my future. My favourite part of the recruitment process is they will guide you all the way from the start to the finish, and the recruitment consultant is always happy to answer any inquiry you have about the job. I would say Alert is a very accommodating and very safe environment for us jobseekers, and I would recommend everyone to try reaching out to them.

i will gladly recommend this agency to my friends

I am extremely happy and grateful to Ms. Jenella Sanga, who guided my wife Rebecca throughout the recruitment process for a Clinic in Kuwait. She went above and beyond to help my wife navigate the recruitment process seamlessly. Ms. Sanga took excellent care of my wife from the initial interview until she arrived at her destination. Even after my wife began her job, Ms. Sanga remained in contact to ensure her work happiness. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Ms. Jenella Sanga and Alert for helping my wife find the right job in the right place. I will gladly recommend this agency to my friends who are searching for job opportunities.
