United Arab Emirates – Management Solutions International (MSI)

MSI launched its office in Dubai in 2005 and has been operating continuously through the peak hiring needs in the region. Formerly part of TMP Worldwide, we believe that our heritage of once being part of a world-class, multinational recruitment company, combined with our extensive years in the MENA market, helps us guarantee superior, results driven activities that balance the needs of our clients with the career needs of the candidates with whom we work.

Our offices in Dubai and Bangkok allow us to effectively conduct searches throughout Asia and the Middle East. These regional capabilities, combined with the global reach of the CFR network, have given us the ability to successfully source candidates for roles in Thailand, China, the Philippines, India, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Nigeria, Morocco, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iran.

We differ from other recruitment companies two important ways:

1) Our consultants specialize by industry sector and profession.

Local Practice Areas

  • Sales & Marketing
  • IT & Telecom
  • Operations
  • Finance accounting
  • Engineering & Construction
  • Logistics

This focus allows our consultants to provide a better understanding of the supply of talent available for the specific role being recruited for. Also, because our consultants have prior industry knowledge they understand our clients’ businesses and can often offer unique perspectives that help clarify their needs and ensure better quality hiring decisions.

2) We use a Proprietary Selection Model that is based on an in depth understanding of the role, client and candidate needs across three areas:

Individual – Where we match the candidates Key Result Areas with what our client needs them to achieve and also match the skills, knowledge and attributes possessed by the candidate and needed for effective performance on the job.

Social – Where we match what exists in the client with what the candidate prefers in working style, values, culture and team dynamics.

Organizational – Where we match the monetary and non-monetary incentives, and what resources, systems and strategies that are applicable to this assignment with what the candidate needs to motivate and perform in the role.

Recognizing that every assignment has its own requirements, we do not have a fixed search methodology. Rather, by taking a consultative approach, we assess each assignment on its merits and propose to the Client the methodology which has the greatest chance of success. This means that the assignment could be conducted using a Database Search, an Advertised Search, a Headhunting methodology, or a combination of these techniques.
