Our Consultants seek out, establish and cultivate business relationships to ensure profitable growth for our clients.
The strength of our team lies in our thorough awareness of Middle Eastern markets, and the ability to pinpoint specific trends and use that knowledge to ensure success.
Our phenomenal success is due to our professional approach, delivery of expert solutions, attention to detail, consideration of staff welfare and ethical work ethos.
One of our core areas of expertise is the provision of recruitment and management consultancy, and we have built up over a quarter of a century experience in this highly competitive field.

NADIA has pioneered recruitment and executive search in the Gulf region and it is as a direct result of this dedication that we have developed partnerships with every major employer in the GCC. We are committed to establishing long-term relationships with our clients, and we ensure this by providing tailored solutions for our clients’ recruitment needs across all levels.
Senior managerial candidates can often be elusive in the job market, and in today’s highly competitive world your choice of executive can make a tremendous impact on your company’s future. To ensure we attract the high calibre of personnel that you require, our Executive Search service utilises a 360° marketing network to locate the professionals you need for your company’s management positions. To ensure peace of mind for candidate and employer alike, we offer a completely confidential service - and do not levy any fees, registration or otherwise, upon our candidates.
As a result of our extensive marketing and advertising network, our website – www.nadia-me.com – receives from 6,000 to 8,500 visits per day from potential candidates across the globe. We also field a vast number of telephone calls and emails from applicants from many different countries. Our ability to generate so many leads is only matched by our ability to handle them all, and therefore we offer our clients two choices; branded or unbranded campaigns.
Branded campaigns feature your company’s logo or corporate identity, and the responses can be dealt with by your internal resources, although many of our clients prefer us to screen the applicants on their behalf. Non branded campaigns are run under the NADIA banner ensuring that we handle the responses generated and you do not receive cold calls from interested applicants or sales people.
Whichever method you prefer, we are available to handle telephone and email responses, receive and sort resumes, and pre-interview candidates we feel may be appropriate for the position. All suitable resumes are sorted into three easily-to-handle groups:
In order to attract and retain the best employees, it is essential that a company is able to offer a competitive salary that is in line with those of similar businesses. It all comes back to basic economics – if a company is paying under the going rate they will struggle to attract quality employees, resulting in a high staff turnover and the likely retention of only the underperforming employees. Conversely, paying over the going rate damages your business by denting profitability.
Our Wage and Compensation Survey is therefore extremely valuable as it allows you to determine fair yet competitive salaries suitable for each pay grade. We provide detailed comparisons of your industry’s common compensation parameters, and package this together with comprehensive information about the market salaries for a range of given positions. On completion of the survey, we present you with a Wage and Compensation Analysis Report for all vacancies.
The biggest concern an employer usually has is that their new employee must meet or exceed all of the academic requirements required for the position and possesses sufficient job-related experience. But with over 70% of the world’s employers are now using aptitude tests as part of their recruitment process, perhaps it’s time to consider an additional approach to your recruitment process?
NADIA has partnered with the UK-headquartered Thomas International to provide Psychometric Testing and Analysis. The Thomas International system is based on theories of human behavioural characteristics and the Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) gives an insight into the subject’s behavioural style at work along with assessments of their strengths, limitations and true potential. This is a validated, positive and non-critical behavioural analysis of a person in a work environment and provides a standardised method of comparing candidates against their peers.
As a company grows it is important to define processes and put policies and procedures into a formalised system. At NADIA we can outline the requirements each business needs to adhere to in order to run a properly structured organisation which adheres to all local and regional employment legalities.

Our far-reaching marketing and advertising campaigns generate from 6,000 to 8,500 visits per day to our websites, www.nadia-me.com and www.nadiagulf.com. In addition to using our website to post details of the numerous positions we hold, we offer our clients an extremely economical solution to increase the visibility of their recruitment requirements. Branded Advertisements on our websites allow potential job seekers from any part of the world to be directed straight to your company for you to handle the recruitment process.
