Based in Dubai, Richard capitalised on the construction boom of the 2000’s in Dubai, Bahrain, Qatar and Oman, specialising in engineering, project management, planning and HSEQ/risk.

When the business focus shifted towards Asia, Richard relocated to Hong Kong in 2011 where he has enjoyed continuing to build a highly reputable business across Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia and Singapore together with an exceptional network of job seekers and employers and has become a well-known face within the industry.

Richard is a very active and dedicated supporter of the Lighthouse Club and is currently chairman of the Lighthouse Club Hong Kong Social & Fundraising Committee.

As the global construction industry expands and contracts in tune with market economies and government policies, recruitment products and services must adapt to remain attractive and competitive.

Read more »

Over the last 10 years Stuart has developed a strong network of contacts in the Middle East region. He has performed recruitment assignments in countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan and Kuwait.

His strength has been recruiting largely British expatriate Quantity Surveyors (all levels) and claims professionals into highly reputable construction Contractors and Consultancies in the Middle East market.

His experience in the region allows him to give accurate and sound advice to his candidates on salaries, relocation, schooling, working practices and the general Visa process.

Stuart works with a wide range of reputable construction companies in the region. These range from British to local contractors, all the way through to leading International Contractors such as American, Australian and European companies present in the Middle East market. He also works with many of the global Consultancy Services that have offices in the Middle East region as well as several more locally based Consultancies who are more specific to work this region.

Given the current market in the Middle East, Stuart now mainly works with experienced professionals (circa 7 years plus experience) who are highly qualified and often a member of their relevant professional body (i.e MRICS, MCIArb etc) and with previous experience of working in the Middle East region.
