Our client:

Our client a large format retail organisation is looking for a Senior Talent Acquisition Manager in UAE.

Your Role:

Do you agree that the world is changing and so are the ways of looking at the talent and hiring them?

If you agree you would love the role, as we are looking for a differentiator... You’ll be responsible for identifying and recruiting talent within the industry and it’s not about replacing like for like. We want someone who has ideas on how our client can recruit the best talent from a range of backgrounds, skill sets and experiences. Looking for candidates with experience working on multiple industries…experience in Expat hiring is preferred, preferably from in house recruitment experience but open for profiles from agencies with strong interviewing capability, business acumen etc. The industry is challenging and wide and so are the markets they are expanding, so if challenges get you going we welcome you. We are looking for someone who thinks out of the box when it comes to attracting talent. Stakeholder management across such a wide geography in different time zones becomes the key. Aligning hiring managers and setting the expectations right when it comes to talent in the market. A terrific people's person who sees beyond the CV and changes the goal post with the changing realities of the talent in the market. Understanding of different culture and geographies in MEA will be an added advantage.

More details would be shared only with shortlisted candidates.

Must Haves:

This is going to be a challenging role, so we are looking for someone who has demonstrable experience of working within a challenging recruitment environment, and who really understands recruitment challenges across different levels. You’ll be fully aware of modern sourcing techniques, community building, talent mapping and creating a robust pipeline for different roles across the region. Proactive approach towards hiring is MUST. Looking for someone with a mix of agency and corporate recruitment background with 5 + years of experience. If you can speak Arabic that would be a big PLUS.

Managing Expectations:

At Mindfield we are driven by mutually agreed KPIs and service levels. Exceptional results can only be delivered when we understand both our key stakeholders’ clients and candidates. Keeping this in mind we would request that when applying for a role do take cognizance of the “must haves” to avoid disappointment. Sometimes positions take time to close and there could be delay in us responding to you but as a thumb rule if you do not hear from us in 7-8 working days post applying for the role then the resume has not been shortlisted and would be kept on the database for other roles.

Look forward to a long term relationship…Mindfield…making a difference
