Eutopia celebrates its 10th anniversary with a staff trip to Dubai

Eutopia, one of the premier recruiters for the IT & Telecoms industries, with offices in the UK and Dubai, recently celebrated its 10th anniversary by taking its UK team to Dubai at the end of October to join its locally-based UAE team. The staff enjoyed a weekend of fun as & lsquo;thank you’ for all their hard work, but there was also time to reflect on the company’s incredible success over the past 10 years and look ahead to its future growth.

CEO Craig Coverman, plus its UK staff, joined the team from its Dubai office, staying in the heart of Media City. The weekend began with drinks and dinner, followed the next day by a 10th Anniversary Sales Conference at the nearby Westin Mina Seyahi Resort Hotel. The conference included the first showing of a specially created celebratory 10-year anniversary video. This video ( highlighted a number of key company successes, including placing over 2,250 candidates in over 75 countries worldwide, the opening of its first international office in 2006 (in Dubai), winning numerous industry awards and becoming the premier IT & Telecoms staffing provider in the Gulf & Middle East.

A range of team building events also took place at the Sales Conference, including a competition to create a new Eutopia & lsquo;Hakka’ (photo, left). 

A number of well deserved promotions were also announced.  In its Dubai office, Maryam Salman was promoted to Resource Team Leader, Nick Short to Senior Consultant and Darren Franks to UAE Managing Director. In the London Office, Paul Hubbard has been promoted to Managing Consultant.  The Sales Conference was followed by a long Dubai-style brunch and an equally long afternoon spent at the famous Barasti Bar.

The staff were given the following morning as free time, with many taking part in either a golf tournament, shopping or sunbathing on Jumeirah Beach. In the afternoon, the company had organised a luxurious team boat trip aboard a 70-foot cruiser, which took the group along the Dubai coast for the entire afternoon. This was followed by the official 10th anniversary dinner at the Dubai Yacht Club, before a night of celebration at the famous 360 Bar overlooking the Burj al Arab Hotel.

After an exciting and exhausting weekend, the UK team then flew back to London the following morning, mingling with members of the England cricket team who were on the same flight home!

Craig Coverman commented: & lsquo;We’ve had an incredible first 10 years at Eutopia and achieved great success in both the UK and Dubai. This weekend of celebration was the Management’s way of thanking the team in both offices for their outstanding contribution, hard work and loyalty.  At Eutopia, we are proud of our commitment to quality, our in-depth understanding of our clients’ and candidates’ requirements and our unparalleled industry, functional and regional expertise – which is all possible thanks to the calibre of our staff. If any Consultants out there want to join us and experience some of that success, then please do get in touch!  In the meantime, here’s to the next 10 years of success.’
