When I was on the job market I was seeking a senior level position, so if you're looking for a similar position then this will be of interest to you. I was on the books of almost ALL the top recruitment agencies in Dubai. I must say they were all great in a way but only one stood out and offered impeccable service, for this reason alone, I'm happy to recommend them 100%.
Their name is as unique as their service, "budge". I got a call from one of their Senior Consultants, Louisa Soer, to come in and meet with her. I did, and thank heavens I did! It goes without saying Louisa took a great interest in the role I was looking for, found out detailed information about myself and my job needs and got to work. She stayed in contact and even called me to let me know she was going on holiday and who I should liaise with in the meantime!! This is SUPER service from an agency, especially in Dubai.
When she did find me relevant positions she would email me all their details, website links, site maps and even a list with interview tips!!
Louisa even got me into one of the biggest organisations in Dubai which gave me a great offer. If there's one recruitment agency I can recommend then it's definitely “Budge” if you're lucky you'll get Louisa Soer as your consultant, however I know that office is filled with capable consultants and no matter who you get you're in good hands. If you're looking for a senior role make sure you're on their books.

Just a short note to thank you (Ed Singleton) and the Budge team for the support and work you did in helping me look for a new position. I was delighted with the professional approach and careful attention you offered me. I have no hesitation in recommending your organisation for recruitment issues. I will continue to pass on your good name.

I just wanted to take this time to express my incredible appreciation for assigning Lucy to my candidacy. I cannot express in words how diligently she has worked on my behalf. Her ability to have companies respond to her so quickly is very telling of the company's respect for her reputation and her consummate professionalism. As you may know, we are attempting to schedule several face to face meetings very shortly, so that we may also be able to meet with them during my visit to Dubai.
Although we have not finalized my candidacy with any one company, I wanted to take this time to express my gratitude of your company's efforts thus far. I am sure that there are plenty more people beyond Lucy and yourself that continue to work on my candidacy in the background, but I wanted to request that you send my appreciation for their efforts as well.

I am sorry to trouble you, my name is Bonnie Knapp I have been dealing with your colleague Ed regarding a position which I have just had confirmed! I would just like to say that I am very impressed with how Ed had dealt with the whole process - which has taken over a month to secure my position, Ed has kept me up to date with everything making sure I am kept informed via email and telephone on a regular basis and he has always been extremely professional and friendly and encouraging throughout - which I have found that some of the recruitment companies are the total opposite!!
I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone looking to re-locate and I will inform my new employer of his fantastic customer service and professionalism. All credit to Ed I now have an amazing opportunity it has been a pleasure dealing with him.

I have to say what an excellent site you have provided. I have had more help and information regarding moving to and attaining employment within Dubai then I have had from many other sites put together. Your fresh approach and user friendliness of the site is a great help. I have sent my C.V to yourselves and look forward to speaking with you shortly.

After dealing with many recruitment agencies between Jan 08 and May 08, Budge Recruitment stood head and shoulders above the rest. From first contacting me about the vacancy, their staff (Gareth Preece) kept me informed throughout all the stages, to its conclusion. They also arranged my interview(s) and negotiated starting salary on my behalf. Budge Recruitment would be my first port of call if and when the occasion arises. Thanks again for your professional approach to recruitment. Many other companies should take note.

Over the past few months I have dealt with a number of recruitment agencies and various individuals in such recruitment agencies. Many of them I have found not to be very professional and persistent with respect to either attempting to stay in contact with myself as a candidate nor continuously keeping me in mind when potential opportunities arise. You have been one of the few exception in this regard. As a result I have referred you to a friend of mine who is in the market currently for a position.
