Message from MD - The message


The heartbeat of our success are our people. We take great care in selecting the 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 Hays in 2010 as an Associate Consultant at the Tokyo office. Coming from a legal background, recruitment was entirely new to me however the training and support I received throughout my time with Hays has enabled me to continually progress and pursue a global career. Throughout the years with Hays I have had the opportunity to first develop as a manager in Japan, then lead an office in Malaysia, to now being Managing Director for our Middle East business. Every step of the way, I’ve known “what’s next” in my career and what is needed to achieve it; a fantastic work environment for anyone who is goal oriented and target driven.

Our purpose at Hays is “Creating Opportunities, Improving Lives” – and my career at Hays has certainly made me a believer that the right job can transform a life. Recruitment has been extremely rewarding on both professional and personal fronts. Being part of a recruitment business that enables its employees to succeed, certainly adds on to the satisfaction of knowing that you can impact the lives of others. My career at Hays has led me to a path I’d never imagined before joining the world of recruitment.

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.

These are the facts.
