Clarendon Parker moves into Oman
Dubai Internet City-based Clarendon Parker Middle East has opened an office in Muscat, Oman, to respond to a growing need for professional recruitment services to be available locally. Clarendon Parker Oman is the result of a strategic partnership between the recruitment firm and Muscat-based Oman Line Company.
The partnership resulted from Oman Line's own recruitment requirements—it needs a supply of professional staff for its five separate divisions—coupled with the demand for HR and recruitment expertise across the Sultanate. Omanline are operating the only all-Omani outsourced Call Center in the country.
"Since our move to Dubai Internet City, Clarendon Parker has gone from strength to strength. The opening of an office in Muscat will further consolidate our presence in the Southern Gulf region. Partnering with Oman Line is a perfect fit, as it is a quality organization with enormous professionalism and dynamic expansion plans," said Patrick Luby, managing director of Clarendon Parker Middle East.
The office has opened with Muscat-based Omani national staff currently undergoing extensive training at CP Middle East's Dubai Internet City headquarters. Ali bin Adam Al-Hashimi, managing director of Oman Line Co, said: "There is a definite need for a professional HR and recruitment consultancy in Oman.”
CP Oman will have a division dedicated to placing Omanis in employment at home and abroad—especially in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar, where there is a great need for professional young Arabic speakers, according to a company press release.
Clarendon Parker, which has dedicated teams devoted to market sectors which include Information Technology (IT), telecommunication, finance, customer services, construction, oil and gas and FMCG, receives between 200-300 applications a day and foresees substantial growth over the next 12 months in the demand for their recruitment and consulting services. — (menareport.com)
