The company, which has over 120 wholly-owned and franchised offices in 34 countries was established in 1993 and has had a team operating out of Dubai since 2005.

“Although the BRICs countries have been attracting the most attention in recent years, we are convinced that employment markets in the Gulf are some of the most exciting and active around the globe,” says Antal’s chairman and CEO, Tony Goodwin, who will be visiting Dubai next week.  “The 2030 visions of key nations across the Middle East and the drive towards localisation mean that the region has more need than ever for effective talent management, which we believe offers us a fantastic opportunity for growth and development here.  We also believe that our franchise model, which allows professionals to set up and run specialist recruitment businesses under our training and administrative umbrella, is an ideal way of tapping into the strong entrepreneurial spirit we see so much of across the Gulf.”
