Recruitment Division - Corporate Strategy

Globally, Corporate Strategy and Business Excellency are at the heart of all business operations and increasingly the UAE market is becoming more and more aware of the importance of effective business planning and best practice tools. As a result Charterhouse have seen a higher demand from clients for these kinds of professionals and as one of the newer business areas to be introduced, organisations are finding that strong talent is hard to attract.

With the introduction of the Dubai Quality Award & Sheikh Khalifa Excellence Award in Abu Dhabi UAE organisations are able to measure business performance and produce road maps to achieve Excellency. Local organisations are increasingly looking to attract experienced Strategic thinkers, EFQM assessors and Business Excellency specialists into the business in order to change cultures and adopt best practice. Talent pools tend to be greatest in Gulf countries where these strategies are already in operation, some of which have entered the local market but the trend suggest that many more from overseas may look to enter the UAE market or look to home grown talent.

Within the UAE and across the Gulf states many of the International Management Consultancy firms are already in operation, but again good talent is difficult to attract and retain. Traditionally candidates have looked to develop their strategy and corporate planning skills with these types of organisations, but the trend suggests that increasingly local and international firms are placing high importance on this area. More and more UAE based organisations are now recruiting Strategy Management Consultants to perform in-house roles and typically look at activities ranging from short to long term business planning, competitive strategies, identification of new markets/products, business development etc. During times of slow growth and tough market conditions, organisations are looking towards these professionals to offer turnaround strategies and candidate pools are generated predominantly from the UAE, Jordan, Egypt, UK and USA.

Areas of Coverage
  • Management Consultants
  • Strategic business planning
  • Change management
