Dubai – one of the seven emirates that make up the UAE – has long established itself as the pre-eminent international business hub in the Middle East. With an open economy that welcomes companies and individuals from around the world, its dynamic nation brings forth tremendous growth opportunities and innovation to its industries.
Following this trend, SThree Dubai is expanding to a bigger office space this October. The monumental growth of the office is a result of its consistency in working towards growth by analysing their performance, collating customer feedback and putting them into actionable improvements.
A testament to Dubai’s strength in the STEM sector
Proud to have established itself as a leading medium-sized Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) specialist since 2008, they have achieved year-on-year growth with two well-performing sub brands – Huxley and Progressive Recruitment.
The region’s rapid embrace of innovation has seen it play host to some of the largest exhibitions and summits across a myriad of industries. It is also host of the 2020 World Expo, the first time in the Middle East and marking a break from the usual run of European, North American and Asian hosts.
What is the impact of this big move?
With our new office being strategically located within Dubai’s International Financial Centre (DIFC), Senior Business Manager of Huxley Dubai, Hasnain Qazi, shared the prospects it brings to the business:
“This is a very exciting time for us. For me, moving to a brand new, custom designed office, twice the size, and several times the ambience is massive news! To have an environment that energises us given how much time we spend in the office, relaxes us too. It also exemplifies the growth of our brands, and the mothership investing in our future in the region which is a great message to our customers.
With this positive mind set, we have already started to offer new talent to join us ready for when we are in the new space. Having a bigger team onboard means we will be able to provide an even better service to our customers, and in doing so helping us reach our goal of being the most trusted and largest recruitment company in the MENA region.”
Senior Business Manager of Progressive Recruitment Dubai, Hashim Kapadia, also shared:
“Our aim and vision is to be the most trusted and largest recruitment company in the MENA region. The Contract team is projected grow by over 30% in the next 12 months in terms of headcount across Progressive and Huxley. The team can also expect growth in management-level opportunities to fast track their careers.
With the increased office space, we are looking to onboard more interns in the business and promote a ‘graduate workforce’ within the Dubai community. We intend to grow into more key STEM markets and enhance our client portfolio with bespoke solutions. By 2022, we plan to double the growth of the business strengthen our ties with our customers. The team also wants to ensure it is giving back to the community as we grow our presence in the region and CSR will remain a key aspect of our vision and strategy.”
