Middle-Eastern promise for EMR

Middle-Eastern promise for EMR
 
Global marketing recruiter, EMR, has appointed Abigail Gibson to spearhead its Middle East operation. Abigail, who joins from Witan Jardine, will be based in the companys Dubai office and will be responsible for the Gulf region and North Africa. She will report into Tim Hedger - regional managing director at EMRs parent company, the FiveTen Group - who has overall responsibility for the region.
 
EMR saw the potential in the Gulf region back in 2007, when it set up as the first specialist marketing recruitment company in Dubai.
Hedger comments: Whilst the region and Dubai in particular has experienced some well-publicised economic problems over the past year or so, were picking up signals from the market that confidence is returning. Were committed to developing EMRs presence in the Gulf region and North Africa and Abigail is joining the business at an exciting time.
 
Hedger believes that 2010 will be an interesting year in the Middle East, both for established employees and for jobseekers. He continued: The positive sentiment has helped maintain strong basic salaries across most marketing and communications disciplines, perhaps as people have become less reliant on bonuses. We are also starting to see greater fluidity in the job market as many who were unsettled last year were deterred from moving due to the recession.
 
Gibson believes that the region will quickly recover from the effects of the global recession. She said: Although the Dubai market has been in the doldrums, the region as a whole is still a relatively vibrant and emerging economy. For marketers looking for an exciting opportunity combined with a very different lifestyle, theres no better place to be.
 
Part of the international FiveTen Group, EMR has been recruiting marketing and communications professionals for 16 years the parent group employs 570 people across 12 countries.
