introduction to the headhunting industry in Dubai

Dubai’s fast-growing economy attracts many large companies to establish their offices in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). As a result, the demand for top-level personnel like CFOs and CEOs has increased significantly. To find highly skilled candidates quickly, many companies hire specialised headhunters in the UAE. As an international recruitment agency, Alert can manage the hiring process from start to finish, respecting local business norms and standards. We find the best candidates worldwide and consistently deliver top talent to our clients.

what is headhunting?

Alert’s definition of headhunting is “identify talent and proactively approach a potential candidate, without candidates having to apply for our vacancies themselves”.

why choose for a headhunter?

Our Dubai-based headhunters are experts in identifying top-level C talent who are not actively searching for new job opportunities. Regular recruitment methods are often not enough to attract such candidates, but our headhunters use data-driven recruitment and social media channels to reach the right people. Our headhunters also emphasise a unique ‘what’s in it for you’ proposition to convince candidates that your company offers the best job and work environment.

Hanneke being happy
I am looking forward to work with hanneke again

Alert 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 work with her again.

alert is very accommodating

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.
