Leading specialist agency Alpine Recruitment is going from strength to strength in the construction/engineering recruitment sector, especially in the Middle East. Recruiting for both Arab and international building and civil engineering developers, project management, and professional quantity surveying companies, Alpine is proving to be unrivalled in sourcing the best candidates for the right jobs.

As has been so widely publicised of late, the construction sector is thriving in the Middle East, offering significant opportunities for construction professionals. Alpine is also the sole provider to Gulf Leighton in Ireland and the preferred contractor to many firms in the Gulf.

The international division is headed by John Davies, who is the former managing director of UAE contractor Al-Futtaim-Wimpey, now Al-futtaim-Carillion.

“The pace of construction in the Middle East continues little affected by the current world financial crisis,” Mr Davies commented. “An increasing number of construction professionals from Ireland are applying for positions in the Middle East countries seeking stable and long term employment.”

Alpine is heavily involved in the residential and commercial developments in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Oman and elsewhere in the Middle East.

There is a high demand for suitable candidates and business for Alpine has never been better. Most multinationals are confident in the sustainablity of regional growth and further investment.

The value of construction projects in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council ) region has already well exceeded $1 trillion, $221bn of which is in the UAE. It is estimated that with all of the planned projects for the region the economic spend will stretch to $2.4 trillion.

Such a prediction leads Alpine to believe that there will be no slow down in the forseeable future for the demand of employment in the region. And no surprise, Alpine already has a firm grip on the market!
