London Mayor backs GulfTalent’s UK office
London, April 16, 2013
GulfTalent.com, a top Middle East technology company, recently opened its UK office in London, a move that was welcomed by the city’s Mayor Boris Johnson.
GulfTalent.com is an online portal, which acts as a meeting point between employers and candidates and covers all sectors and job categories in the Middle East.
International firms such as GulfTalent.com are increasingly looking to London as the world’s capital for business, with unrivalled access to a talented workforce, capital markets and creative gateway to Europe where ideas and trends are born.
GulfTalent.com employs the world’s best digital specialists and chose London because of its access to a talented workforce and high quality service providers.
The London team will be accelerating the development of the next generation of their online recruiting platform, and working on a host of cutting-edge features including a mobile platform. The London office is currently recruiting software engineers, analysts and other online specialists.
“I am delighted to welcome GulfTalent.com to London, a leading online recruitment specialist in the Middle East,” said Johnson.
“International collaborations such as this one are vital to the continued growth of London's digital and hi tech sectors. GulfTalent.com has joined thousands of hi tech enterprises in recognising London is the premier place to locate in Europe thanks to the wealth of skills, support and opportunities this city provides.”
Yasser Hatami, GulfTalent.com managing director, said: “We hope to be part of a new wave of Gulf technology companies coming to London to scale up operations and access new markets. Dubai and London have a lot in common and make for ideal expansion locations for companies from either city.
“We will be creating jobs in the UK and adding to the collaboration between London and Dubai’s flourishing technology sectors.”
GulfTalent.com has been supported by the Mayor’s promotional organisation London & Partners in setting up their London based operations which offers free and impartial advice to global businesses looking to establish office in the UK’s capital. – TradeArabia News Service
