We are at the forefront of sustainable recruitment and are leading the way within Dubai. We anticipate continued strong growth across the Middle East and an increased demand for sustainability professionals.
(PRWEB) September 9, 2010
Leading International Sustainability Recruitment Specialists – Allen & York announce the opening of their new offices in Dubai UAE, August 2010.
Allen & York are a specialist sustainability recruitment consultancy, who offer sustainability job opportunities across the integrated Natural and Built Environment, Engineering, Energy, Health & Safety and Waste sectors and have successfully recruited for 17 years for global corporations and consultancies within the UK and further afield.
Earlier this year, as part of an ongoing international development strategy, Allen & York opened offices in Melbourne, Australia and have now established an on-site office in Dubai. Allen & York are to use the UAE as a central hub for their Middle East sustainability recruitment operations.
The region has seen some phenomenal growth in recent times and although the effects of the global downturn have made an impact to some, it still remains on track for substantial growth within sustainability in the coming years.
By basing themselves in Dubai Allen &York aim, not only to improve on their already impressive recruitment success throughout the Middle East region, but to also bring their unique specialist technical recruitment expertise closer to clients in a region that continues to substantially develop.
They anticipate that within the near future they will be expanding their sustainable recruitment operations throughout the Middle East and look forward to working more closely with clients throughout the region to grow and enhance their current skill sets and help improve the standards of environmental management and corporate reporting, to reduce the impact on the environment across the region.
“Establishing an on the ground presence in Dubai allows Allen & York to react quickly and more readily to local recruitment requirements, meet our candidates and clients face to face without the aid of video conferencing and further develop recruitment partnerships. With additional resources in the region we are able to focus on delivering more efficient sustainability recruitment and HR solutions to our Middle Eastern clients. Jean-Maxime Long, Middle East - Group Manager
Anticipated areas of growth within the global sustainability sector include: Health & Safety, Renewable Energy, Low Carbon & Clean Tech, Sustainable Engineering and Sustainable Infrastructure Planning within Environmental Consultancies and Corporate business.
All the indications from world leaders within both politics and commerce are that the world is moving towards a more sustainable and green future. The Middle East has made substantial new investment within sustainable infrastructure developments in terms of roads, power and water. Recently Allen &York have been instrumental in helping the Abu Dhabi authorities to develop their sustainability capabilities.
Announcing the office opening, Allen & York Founder/MD, Mark Allen said “We are at the forefront of sustainable recruitment and are leading the way within Dubai. We anticipate continued strong growth across the Middle East and an increased demand for sustainability professionals, to meet the requirements of an expanding urban infrastructure. Our forward-thinking and ambitious international strategy will allow us to develop and build upon our already strong partnerships with leading businesses and key individuals within the region.”
Allen & York are unique within the Middle East, where few recruitment consultancies within the sustainability sector exist. They are able to put businesses in touch with highly skilled professionals, from all over the world and thus where skills-gaps arise Allen & York are ideally placed to fill them. They have a highly skilled recruitment team, within a complex technical market.
