Top French HR firm to open ME office
Abu Dhabi, November 28, 2011
ArchiBat HR, a leading French human resources consultancy and executive search firm, is opening a new regional office in the UAE to cover the GCC and Middle East markets.
“We exhibited at Cityscape Global in Dubai. Despite the current economic moroseness of the construction sector, we did well and we obtained interesting and promising contacts,” said Ludovic Baudry, area manager of ArchiBat HR Middle East.
“As the only French company to exhibit and the only Executive Search firm specialized in engineering, construction and architecture present during the show, we drew attention of decision-makers who visited us. We signed several contracts with major players in the engineering and interior design sector in the Middle East. Cityscape enabled us to advertise our work and to expand our client portfolio,” he added.
“The Middle East is a rich area where the potential is huge, particularly for the engineering and construction sectors. Projects are amazing and often with big budgets. Contrary to Europe, you can quickly have access to decision makers, and if you are serious and you offer a real added value, then you will succeed in the Middle East,” added Baudry.
ArchiBat HR selects 1,600 candidates from around the world each year for a wide range of clients such as architectural and interior design practices, engineering firms, real estate, industrial groups, retail etc. The consultants are all specialists of the construction, architecture, engineering, interior and urban design industries, Baudry said.
“We can see huge potential in the Middle East region. The UAE is the place where all professionals meet during B2B meetings and exhibitions. It’s a hub for architects and engineers in the region,” Baudry concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
