Asia and MENA

Delivering Bespoke Solutions to Unique Challenges

Our team has a vast experience in the region, successfully filling many roles in some of the world’s most challenging environments. We have identified and appointed key personnel to support and implement objectives in a wide variety of technical and managerial positions, from post-conflict, peacebuilding and reconstruction, to environment and development.

Oxford HR’s professional consultants and researchers have extensive backgrounds working in the sector across a broad spectrum of practice areas, such as economic development and intergovernmental organisations, sanitation and health, education, diversity and equality.  This expertise, combined with a rich network of associates across the region, gives our team a complex and nuanced understanding of the unique challenges faced by governments, not-for-profit and for-purpose organisations across Asia, the Middle East and North Africa.

Our core values are aligned with those of the sector, and we are consistently trusted to appoint leaders who are not only technically competent, but who are also ideally suited to the organisation’s culture, and committed to delivering measurable results on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the priorities set out in the UN’s 2030 Agenda.

We work with multi- and bi-lateral donors, development banks, international NGOs, social enterprises, consultancies and charities. Our extensive sector experience and reach enables us to conduct closely targeted recruitment searches for senior and complex positions on a global scale.

"We found Oxford HR’s role throughout the process extremely useful. They took on board our recommendations and then crafted a recruitment strategy that enabled us to hire a strong Head of Programmes.

The calibre of candidates overall was strong. And the level of communication, candidate insight and advice offered was highly beneficial. Given that we had previously tried to recruit to this role, unsuccessfully, we were incredibly pleased with the result of our relationship with Oxford HR."

"I had a fantastic experience with Oxford HR, particularly with Ana Filipa Fernandes. The first interview conducted by Oxford HR allowed me to understand the Big Lottery Fund and how I could potentially contribute my skills, knowledge and experience to the organisation.

Oxford HR went out of its way to ensure that as a candidate, I was valued and respected as a professional and as a human being and this meant a lot to me. The experience is the best I have ever had with recruitment companies."
