England Associates, a UK specialist construction recruitment company, has announced that it opened a new regional office in Doha, Qatar, in January.
The move is part of the company's global strategy to expand its operations to better support international and local construction, oil and gas, and technical support companies located in the Middle East, said the firm.
Nadeem Obagi, Director of the Doha office said: "Now that we have invested in a local office supported by a dedicated recruitment team in Qatar, we are confident that we will provide our clients an even greater specialist recruitment service. We are looking forward to building long-term relationships with global, regional and local construction firms in the Middle East."
Simon England, Managing Director of England Associates, said: "We have built several strong relationships with major construction groups in Qatar with strong expansion plans. Due to the shortage of qualified candidates, these companies are ready seeing the benefits of attracting candidates from around the world. We organised a major recruitment campaign in January for a top-five contractor, resulting in the mobilisation of 12 senior managers to Qatar."
