Nick Peel, CEO - Marka PJSC

“Russell and the Yeomans Team have helped with the recruitment programme from Marka’s launch on the Dubai Financial Market in September 2014. From 10 to 1200 employees in 16 months. Russell and his team have consistently demonstrated their consummate professionalism, displaying a very deep knowledge and understanding of the region, both technically and culturally. They get under the organizational skin, to understand the DNA and heartbeat of the business, and align with company goals and objectives. They don’t just understand a brief, they help develop the proposition. I do believe Russell and co add long term value to a company’s human capital pool, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any potential business partner”

Judit Karfner, Associate Director - KPMG Business Academy at KPMG

“I worked with Derwent Yeomans Executive as a candidate for the role I now work in – Head of Academy for KPMG. Their approach from the outset was highly professional, they essentially opened up my thinking to a part of the world that was totally new to myself and my family. They literally consulted me throughout the whole process, educating me on the role, the organisation, the interview process and what to expect when working in a part of the world I had not experienced before. My experience with them has totally changed my perception of the recruitment industry – they have literally transformed my career and the life of our family. In addition since moving from Hungary to Dubai they have helped us settle and integrate and they have specifically helped KPMG business develop through their extensive network. I cannot recommend them highly enough”

“I have worked with Yeomans Executive both as a client and candidate. The team and its’ principal have provided professional and comprehensive services in placing C-suite positions and senior manager roles for difficult projects and markets. They are persistent, committed and immaculate in their analytics in matching the right person for the job. They have a thorough follow through in ensuring that there is a mutually agreeable relation between candidate and employer during the early months of placement. They have also personally provided me with networking and business development opportunities that makes their relation so much more added value”
