What our clients and candidates say about Paul

“I was first introduced to First Resort Global Recruitment in May 2013. Since that moment I have viewed them as a strategic partner and a vital part of our businesses’ expansion plans. At each stage I have found the Senior Management and Account Managers to be highly efficient.
I am happy to confirm that we use First Resort exclusively to fulfil our recruitment needs.”


Middle East Director, Leading global financial services company

“First Resort Global Recruitment has been the preferred recruitment partner of our Holding Company for several years.
I believe that First Resort are the most active and reliable recruitment company in the Saudi market.
A member of their team has travelled with our Chairman, CEO and VPs globally to offer the highest service. The long term commitment has included the organisation of interview sessions in London, UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Istanbul, Lebanon, Morocco, Jordan and Egypt.
We have introduced and recommended First Resort to many other companies in Saudi Arabia and each has enjoyed an equally positive experience.”


CEO, One of the largest Holding Companies in Saudi Arabia

“I would like to thank you for your visit to our office in Riyadh. It showed a truly professional attitude and gave us even more confidence that you are the right recruitment company to depend on in terms of sourcing the right talents.
I would also like to thank you for the best CVs I’ve ever got from any agency, both in quality and quantity in over 10 years. Thank you again, and looking forward to a long, constructive relationship.”


Chief HR Officer, One of Saudi’s top 20 companies

“I have tried local Recruitment companies in Saudi Arabia for many years. I have now cut ties with all due to the astonishing results achieved by First Resort. Despite being based in London, 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.”
