Professional Services



Resourcing Consultant

Phone: 043626291

Originally from the UK, I moved to Dubai in 2014 to work as cabin crew meaning I got to see many parts of the world and live in a country where the sun shines all year round. After many years in the airline industry, I decided I wanted a career in something I would not only love but would mean I could still meet people from all over the world. I began working at EA recruit at the beginning of July, specialising in professional services recruitment, covering financial services and insurance.



Operations Director

Phone: +971 4 362 6291

Born in Kent, studied in Yorkshire and eventually landed in Essex. It was inevitable that I would work abroad at some point due to my parent’s love of travel which I have continued in later life. Having previously worked in the public sector with the NHS I changed career paths into specialist recruitment and haven’t looked back since.

Our MENA business has gone from strength to strength over recent years and EA recruit is now known in the industry for delivering a high caliber of candidate within a short time frame. We believe this is imprtant in the Middle East as our clients need to have a new employee at short notice. Alongside our permanent recruitment we also offer short term temporary contract staff. Our team have contract staff out on some of Dubai's most prestigious projects ranging from Site Engineer to Senior Project Managers. 

I am always eager to hear from recruiters looking to move to the Middle East. We have an emphasis on team work, dedication and work satisfaction. Don't believe me drop any of the team here a message.

Our motto at EA recruit is pride, passion and belief which we have in abundance. I am an avid follower of horse racing and enjoy spending my free time at either Meydan or Jebel Ali racecourse during the UAE season.




Senior Consultant

Originally from Ireland, but flew across the pond to Liverpool to study at John Moore’s. Following graduation I started my career in recruitment, I ended up staying in Liverpool for 6 years, specialising in building maintenance for a leading construction and property recruitment agency.  

After visiting Dubai on holiday, I knew this is where I wanted to spend a lot of time whilst also excelling in my recruitment career. After several interviews, EA Recruit was the best fit for me due to their renowned reputation and 15 years construction experience in both the UK and the Middle East. At EA recruit I manage white collar contract or permanent staff placements in the construction industry.

We have acheived this by supplying a high caliber of candidate in a short space of time, with a fully compliant UAE visa and labour process.

I also have experience of supplying interim / call-off basis staff to major global events previously having worked extensively on the London Olympic Games of 2012
