London, UK (PRWEB) January 5, 2008
Accountancyjobsabroad.com has bolstered its Middle East operations through the signing of a number of clients in the fund management and insurance industries to use the company's services in 2008. The newly signed clients are seeking to staff their own burgeoning operations in Dubai, Bahrain and Qatar.
Director Mike Williams stated that "With the growth of all types of business in the Gulf Region we have found that many new companies are looking for value-driven recruitment solutions, established recruitment consultancies with a one-size-fits-all attitude struggle to fulfill this requirement. Due to our web-focused approach and our flexible client focused business model we have been better placed to service these clients and we look forward to building long standing relationships with our new clients and more generally increasing our presence in the region."
Accountancyjobsabroad.com is a totally web-based recruitment consultancy that specializes in placing accountants and finance professionals into tax-friendly or tax-free locations. The company initially focused on placing individuals to Bermuda, Grand Cayman, The Channel Islands (Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man), Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland. However in recent months the company has seen an increase in interest from employers in emerging markets such as the Gulf Region and China.
Founded in October 2007 by two chartered accountants with over six years of offshore experience the company's main portal for sourcing candidates is through its website http://www.accountancyjobsabroad.com. The company has had over four hundred visitors to the site since its inception. Mr. Williams went on "We have experienced more than anticipated web traffic in what has traditionally been a quiet period for the recruitment sector. Also we have noted that we are experiencing hits from Africa, India and South East Asia as well as from our anticipated main source of candidates, namely the United Kingdom and Ireland. This reflects the increased quality of candidates from these areas and also the relative strength of the Euro and Sterling against the dollar. As such we are adding a candidate log-in to the site in an attempt to make the site more user-friendly for candidates whose first language is not English. This should allow candidates to upload their CV's and receive job alerts. We are looking forward to an exciting 2008 as are many of our prospective candidates who will obtain valuable career progression in exciting and exotic locations around the world."
