The Professional Services team at Cooper Fitch is actively involved in supporting advisory, management consultancy, legal and technology consultancy firms throughout the region.
The growth in professional services across the Middle East has been significant over the past ten years, as it continues to develop in areas such as tax, audit, compliance, legal and other niche sectors. The demand for tier one and tier two strategy houses in supporting governments with developing long term; five to twenty-year plans is well noted. Over the last five years, we have seen a growth in implementation consultancies including project management, technology, and delivery consultancies to help organizations roll out these strategic plans.
The demand for consultancy services implies that growth in this market within tier one and tier two consultancies, boutique firms locally and internationally has been critical as organizations look to develop and execute strategies, drive change and penetrate new markets.
With the imminent introduction of indirect taxes such as VAT across the GCC, there has been a significant increase in demand for Tax jobs and VAT jobs throughout the region.
We have also seen growth across jobs in audit, accounting and taxation jobs, compliance jobs, business transformation jobs, strategy jobs, jobs in financial advisory, HR advisory jobs, and jobs in legal practices.
