“I have tried local Recruitment companies in Saudi for many years. I have now cut ties with all due to the astonishing results achieved by First Resort. The personal 24/7 service I have received is above any from my previous 10 years of HR Management experience. First Resort have provided quality Saudi & local candidates for over 20 senior roles. And each shortlist was given to me within one week of the role becoming live. My partnership has flourished to such an extent, that I have had my First Resort Recruitment Account Manager working onsite with my team at our Jeddah Office for 2 weeks. This resulted in 6 senior roles being offered and starting with us during this time. Their tireless work has resulted in our company’s Recruitment campaign being completed 2 months ahead of schedule. I have recommended First Resort Global Recruitment to my personal contacts and several other companies. Without exception, all of these people have had the similar experience to me. I would be very happy to talk with anyone thinking of starting a relationship with First Resort and share my thoughts.”

The Recruitment Process

Each client has a dedicated Account Manager who is your constant contact point for everything you need. Your Account Manager will talk through your needs and current requirements in detail with you. Then the full team will start work on your organisation’s behalf. All potential candidates will be screened and interviewed by your Account Manager before being presented to you. We are confident this approach maximises the search on your behalf and yet never wastes your time as your Account Manager is working constantly for you with only one point of contact.
