Hanson Search’s International Expansion is Marked with Opening of MENA Office

Leading search consultancy firm Hanson Search has announced further international expansion by opening a UAE office, to meet growing demand for their services in the MENA region.

The firm has opened their office, working to find quality candidates for mid to senior level positions in the region’s communications and marketing services industries. 

The Dubai team will be headed up by Felice Hurst, Director of MENA who will oversee a wider initial group of three employees. “Dubai has now been graded as number six by the recent Gunn report, for creative excellence and its clear from current hiring demands that there is considerable growth”.

Nearly half of the company’s client requirements are now international, making a significant contribution to the firm’s multimillion-pound turnover, and Hanson’s Middle East office marks the latest international expansion for the firm, which also has offices in London and Paris and recruits internationally from Beijing to New York.

Founder and Managing Director Alice Weightman, who launched the company in 2002, says the opening of a dedicated office shows their growing commitment to serving international marketing and communications industries. She said: “In recent years we’ve witnessed a surge in international demand and felt the time was right to add to our overseas operations to be closer to key international markets such as Dubai. The region is in an exciting growth stage, with companies on the hunt for the finest marketing and communications talent, and we believe our expertise, built over the past 12 years through running international briefs, will offer real benefits to employers and employees alike."

We have launched with an initial team of three in the region, headed up by Felice Hurst, and have ambitious plans for growth in both the region and additional international locations.
