At the heart of our success are our people. We take great care in the type of people we recruit, focusing as much emphasis on the cultural fit as the ability to do the job. You should consider a career at Hays if you are a determined, self-confident, passionate individual who is keen to be highly successful in a fast-paced and competitive environment.
I joined as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant in 1985 having recently graduated in International Relations and Politics. As you can probably discern from this I wasn’t certain what career I wanted, a situation which may be familiar to you. I did know that I wanted to be successful and that I wanted a job which provided a challenging yet supportive environment where I could learn a multitude of tasks and take control of my earnings. I wasn’t disappointed and have loved my job ever since!
Like many people in Hays I progressed my career quickly. Some of the more senior roles I have held include Head of Hays Construction & Property, which then led to me being Managing Director at Hays Insurance and Financial Services in the UK, before taking up my current role here in Dubai in 2009.
With a career at Hays, you can be guaranteed that you will receive the best training, coaching and personal development the industry can provide. We can offer unrivalled career opportunities across EMEA and further afield. You can expect to be leading your own team of consultants within two to three years of joining us or faster still if you are exceptional. Almost all of our leadership team themselves joined Hays as Associates and we therefore have a wealth of experience across all aspects of our business.
Our industry is also evolving at a rapid rate. The traditional recruitment model has been transformed into a new model where art and science combine to help establish deep relationships in candidate communities through the power of digital technology, data science and personalised communications at scale. We are putting this new ‘Find & Engage’ model at the heart of our business – there’s never been a more exciting time to join Hays.

At Hays we match thousands of the right candidates to the right jobs every single day across more than 20 different industry specialisms.
We operate across private, government and semi-government sectors. Our recruitment teams are backed by equally talented human resources, information technology, marketing, legal, compliance and finance teams.
All our professionally trained recruiting experts focus on an industry specialism. They become experts in their field; knowing the market and roles available, the leading companies, the skills required and the key people involved in the recruitment process.
Our consultants work in close partnership with senior decision makers to understand their client’s needs and deliver an outstanding recruitment service. These relationships and those they develop with their candidates are vital to a consultant’s personal success, and the success of our business.
We have developed and are deploying an improved model, one which we call Find & Engage. This takes the best recruitment practices and candidate relationships our consultants have developed over many years, and combines them with new technology and data science techniques available today to ensure we find the best candidates for any given role.
This approach puts the relationship back at the heart of recruitment, but uses digital technology, machine learning and data science to operate on a massive scale that has not previously been possible.
The culture at Hays is fast-paced, meritocratic and incredibly rewarding. As a business, we have four brand values that define who we are and what we do. Our expectation is that you display the Hays brand values from your initial contact with us and throughout your career at Hays.
