Focus Management International Strengthens its Dubai Presence

Market leader in food and drink recruitment, Focus Management International - the global division of Focus Management Consultants Limited consolidates its position in the UAE by expanding its current team and launching a new international website operating from Dubai.

The firm has appointed recruitment consultant Yassine Sakkaf to join the existing team at their contemporary offices in Knowledge Village.

Yassine who holds a Masters Degree in Development Science, and a competent proficiency in 4 languages, joins Focus Management International with strong sector experience acquired with two other recruitment firms, most latterly based in Dubai. Yassine will be further developing the consultancy’s Finance Recruitment sector specialism across its blue chip client base

With the emphasis firmly on growth, Focus Management International has also made a further appointment in the form of Kate Campbell, who will join the Dubai office later this month. Kate arrives at the firm with five year’s recruitment consultancy experience acquired with global agencies based in the UAE. Kate will draw upon her experience to specialise in HR recruitment in the new role.

July also sees Focus Management International unveiling a new international, fully responsive website further establishing the business’s UAE base as the firm prepares to increase its candidate and client activity.

Bringing over 25 years experience to the GCC region, Focus Management International is the global division of Focus Management Consultants Limited which specialises in strategic recruitment activity for the demanding FMCG, Food and Beverage retail, manufacturing and hospitality sector.

Current briefs see the business working across UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia, India, Lebanon and Kuwait, and in the last six month the business has also recruited for major clients based in Pakistan, South Africa and Egypt.

The dedicated Dubai team works worldwide to secure the very best candidates and with 95% client referrals, Focus Management International boasts a vast client portfolio of many of the leading organisations in the market.

James Everall, Regional Director explains “I worked for the Group in the UK and regularly visited the GCC region to support our clients. It became very clear that they wanted us working here locally to support their strategic plans and recruit entire teams for them”. The Food and Beverage industry is a hugely dynamic sector, and requires very specific skills, knowledge and frequently qualifications to ensure senior level resourcing success. “We are able to draw on a database of over 500,000 candidates from local and international markets to find the perfect solution for our clients. Our recent move to Knowledge Village has allowed us to broaden our service with recruitment and regional client account management handled directly from the office here in Dubai.”

Stephen Jones, MD of the group says “We are excited to welcome Yassine and Kate on board, and to bolster our digital presence with our new international website. We actively welcome approaches from other senior recruitment consultants as we continue to invest in our expansion across both the international and UK divisions.”

“The Dubai team has a fantastic opportunity to develop long term strategic partnerships with clients in the region and beyond. I am absolutely delighted by the client response we have had, working with so many highly successful and reputable businesses. We see the potential for significant business growth for Focus Management International at Knowledge Village.”
