Ronan Watson is one of the most talented HR professionals that I have met. His eye for talent is so remarkable that he can spot the best candidate immediately. I must say he is a genuine expert on this.

Ronan helped me to secure my recent work as a Commercial Director. During my first meeting with Ronan, he was already certain that I can secure that job prior to my interview with the employer. Guess what - he wasn't wrong!

I have nothing to say but great things about Ronan. He has my highest recommendation.

Sr. Commercial/Contracts Manager - Dhabi Contracting

Worked with SSA GROUP when we were recruiting for our biggest PROJECT so far in middle east. The enthusiasm shown by the team led by Karl Mehta in partnering with our company on our recruitment needs was amazing. SSA GROUP visited our site located 250km from their regional office to get in detail our Project resources requirements and that cemented the synergy. Because of the global nature of SSA GROUP, we started receiving resumes from SSA GROUP around the globe and our hiring challenges became history. Karl and Team, a job well done and we will forever rely on your talent search expertise in all our future projects.

Oliver Muchenje - Sr. Commercial/Contracts Manager - Dhabi Contracting

I have now completed about 3.5 months with Spie Batignolles, Abu Dhabi - UAE and can confidently say that I find myself settling quite well since my move as well as satisfied with the taken decision in view of long term professional and career growth.

I would like to extend my gratitude to you for your support and co-operation throughout the whole process in making the transition so transparent, simple and smooth.

Your professional approach and behaviour from beginning to the end of the whole process have been commendable in maintaining a fair relation with both the parties (Employer and Candidate) without prejudicing the benefit or right of anyone.

Further, your regular follow-ups even after the move show your deep concern and sense of responsibility towards your clients as well as a high level of dedication towards the assigned role from your Employer.

I am very confident in recommending you and your company to the Employers and Candidates for your professional services as need would arise.

I look forward to keep in touch and wish you all the success in every phase of your life.

SSA ltd and James Martin were really helpful and professional in the process of finding me a better job that suited my skills and experience, and in the right place where I wanted to live and work.

They paid much attention to many details and always answered any questions I had quickly. And even after moving to my new job they regularly checked whether I was happy  and comfortable with my new employer, offering to assist me with anything should there be any need for that from my side.

Thanks a lot SSA and James

Estimator, DBB

When I decided to make a slight change in my career path I was a little overwhelmed with the amount of Headhunting / recruitment companies out there, how was I ever going to choose the right one to work with and what could they offer me.”

“SSA contacted me directly after seeing a copy of my resume and quickly set up an interview with DBB. From the moment I spoke to the consultant, I knew that SSA was the agency for me. The consultant took an active interest in both me as a person and me as a candidate.”

“Ailene called me every day to ensure I was kept informed and what progress she was making and was on hand to guide and support me through. Further meetings were subsequently arranged and as ever she was supportive throughout the whole process.”

“Changing career paths can be daunting but at every stage the consultant was available to talk through any concerns I had and offer support when needed. She managed to match me to a position perfect not only for my career and ambitions but also my personality. I have no hesitation in recommending SSA, to anyone looking for a new job opportunity.

Esra Kayhan – HR Manager – Summertown Interiors

The level of service from SSA has been excellent. We have a number of agencies we use and SSA have by far the highest success rate in placing candidates with us. They quickly gained an understanding of our requirements and took the time to understand how we work. I am personally very busy and get bombarded by recruitment companies. SSA understands I am busy and doesn’t bombard me with calls. This has led to us having a standing relationship with SSA and they are the first company I contact when I have a recruitment need.

Quick, responsive, action oriented are some of the many attributes that best describe Tom. He takes his job very seriously and seems to get great satisfaction helping people in finding their desired employment path. His relentless vigour is without a doubt a key asset which makes him a person with whom you want to work with; especially within the highly competitive business setting of professional Dubai.

Amanda Ahlgren – Regional Director at KI

I worked with Tom for a year and a half where he sought an appropriate position for me based on a brief given. He not only succeeded in securing a fabulous role that perfectly fits my skill set, but he put in the desired amount of due diligence to ensure the role and I were connected appropriately. After nearly four months of interviews and Skype calls I secured the new role I currently am in with KI. Excellent work Tom and very professional, I have no qualms in recommending Tom to seek out the right candidate or role for anyone

Medhi Jerten, Serco Middle East

I have always found SSA Recruitment to be a reliable, professional and effective recruitment partner. They have been successful at sourcing multiple employees for Serco at both a mid and senior level, all of whom are still with the company and proving a great asset to the business. Working with SSA is also very ‘easy’, as they understand our needs and represent the brand well to the market. I would have no problem in recommending SSA Recruitment as a favourable recruitment partner to any company that feels they need support in attracting and finding value-add professionals.
