New Morgan McKinley UAE MD brings change to the Middle East recruitment market

Morgan McKinley has announced the appointment of Trefor Murphy as Managing Director UAE based in Dubai and servicing the entire Middle East region. In this new role, Trefor moves from his previous role as Operations Director for Morgan McKinley Ireland.

Trefor has been appointed to this role as part of Morgan McKinley’s plans for the global business in key international markets. His immediate focus will be on reviewing the company’s operations across the region, identifying key areas for growth and building teams around these to deliver market-leading recruitment consultancy to employers and job seeking professionals across the Middle East.

This internal promotion sees Trefor take up the reins as Managing Director for Morgan McKinley UAE following nine years in the company’s Ireland offices where the brand is a market leader. Trefor’s leadership of the business in the UAE will see him continue to operate in many of the same markets: Accounting & Finance Banking & Financial Services, Sales & Marketing, Public Relations, Creative, Supply Chain, Engineering and Construction & Energy across a variety of industry sectors.

Jeremy Canning, Chief Operations Officer Morgan McKinley EMEA commented:

“We view our Dubai office as presenting a key opportunity for our business to develop across the Middle East. This is a large and diverse region with a rich culture. For the 15 years that we have been operating in the UAE, we have gained immeasurable understanding of the business environment, developing strong relationships with a broad spectrum of employers across our key markets.

“Trefor’s appointment is significant to our strategy going forward, helping us to reinforce Morgan McKinley’s position as a recruitment company with global reach and strong local knowledge. We will also look to address how we can better work with professional job seekers to help them achieve career success. Trefor will be ably supported by our experienced team of consultants who work closely with colleagues around the world to provide a market leading offering to Middle East job seekers. His track record as a Director leading highly successful teams across our Ireland offices in a challenging market makes Trefor the ideal person to take Morgan McKinley UAE forward with this focus.”

This new appointment underlines Morgan McKinley’s commitment to key vertical sectors across the region which are predicted to grow.’s January 2012 Middle East Job Index Survey highlights that a number of these sectors are attracting and retaining top talent across the region.
