italent products and services deliver fantastic results, but don’t just take our word for it. Our clients have a lot to say about how we’ve helped them become italented.

James Nicholson - General Manager

Having worked in the UAE in excess of 10 years it is somewhat of a relief to find an enterprise that actually delivers on what they promise, particularly in the recruitment field. Having used a wide variety of suppliers in our time here we have found the majority to be expensive, ineffective and despite repeated meetings, oblivious to our requirements. Having dealt with italent we were impressed not only in terms of speed and cost but also the functionality of the site and the quality of candidates that we were presented with. italent are certainly a business we would use again and a company we would recommend to anyone, the team of highly motivated people really made them a pleasant business to deal with.

Gary Powell - Sales Director

I was completely surprised at how easy the system was to use, it added value at every stage of the recruitment cycle from posting the jobs to the short-listing and tracking of the candidates.

Maitreya Chandrasekaran - Head of HR

I was completely surprised at how easy the system was to use, it added value at every stage of the recruitment cycle from posting the jobs to the short-listing and tracking of the candidates. This product is not only operationally effective but also cost effective, I can honestly say this is the most complete end to end recruitment solution i have ever seen.

Ben Goodman - Director of Business Development

Nexa have always been skeptical about using a recruitment company’s services due to the cost, the service levels and the feeling of harassment from the recruitment company itself. We used to do exactly what Adam speaks about in his 60 seconds presentation. We used to advertise on LinkedIn, Dubizzle and some of the job portals. With this we always get a large response but have to sift through hundreds of applications, many of which are not even relevant to the posted position. It is a huge waste of time and effort. With Adam’s service they do the job posting and the filtering for you. I asked them to look for a business development manager for me. The requirements from me were simple. I talked to them on Thursday and by Sunday I already had over 300 applicants, of which they had filtered 20 to fit my requirements most closely. After two weeks I had over 800 applicants and 76 filtered to my requirements. I can’t imagine having had to sift through these myself. Adam’s team guide you through the process all the way through and ensure that you can work the system and are getting the best out it. They even call you and suggest applicants within the 76 they recommend. The problem I had was having more great applicants than positions. italent is absolutely exceptional because the product itself is fantastic and the customer service given is second to none.

Janne Kilpelainen - General Manager

For some reason, I find hiring people quite difficult. Finding time to source the candidates, schedule interviews, ask the right questions and make decision is not easy and for a reason or another I don’t quite like doing it. But yet I’m in desperate need of good quality candidates and employees, as any growing business in Dubai. In the past, I’ve tried direct adverts, job portals, head hunters and recruitment agencies, but none of them really worked perfectly for me. The scale of applications you get is overwhelming and separating good candidates from bad candidates takes time and is not easy. That’s when I was ready to try something different and Tom from italent came along. As usual, I set the job profile, which italent advertised on my behalf. They shortlisted a good number of candidates, which saved me time. Their easy to use recruitment tool also impressed as I was able to manage applications at ease. Compared to my earlier recruiting, I was saving time and money. And the best part, I’m able to keep the candidates in the database for any future employee needs. I can strongly recommend italent for anyone’s recruitment needs and I’m happy to use them in the future as well.

Labib Nasr - General Manager

italent has helped us with our recruitment needs on numerous positions. Their simply to use methods have made hiring an easier process. Their level of service and the quality of candidates received through them have exceeded our expectations time after time. We are proud to be associated with italent

Clif Colier - Group Managing Director

I just wanted to share how impressed I've been and how quickly I saw the value in italent service, not only to consolidate our advertising efforts, but to also significantly reduce the time spent by HR filtering irrelevant CV's and sourcing via Linkedin. As a global business we are familiar with cloud based technologies and italent gives us a clear, transparent, sourcing platform for all the partners to have access to. You were also very responsive and contributed well beyond what I expected. Many thanks and we will certainly be using again in the future and recommending you whenever we can.

Amira El Sheikh - Corporate Recruitment Manager

italent provided us with the necessary online tools and support to help us facilitate swift and cost effective recruitment.

Jesse Vora - Sales Director

italent has proven to be a valuable tool for our business. Not only has it provided us with the results we were searching for, it allowed us to save time and money throughout the hiring process.

Ramez Helou - Sales Trainer

As my sales training & consulting business is growing, we discovered that more and more customers were having a hard time finding the right sales people. With our most recent assignment to find 2 sales managers for Zen Interiors, I decided to use your services at italent for the second time in order to advertise for these positions and then sort the CV's as per our client?s requirement. We know that recruiting the right people is a challenge and the only way to overcome this is by widening the search to generate enough options to make the best possible decision. We then conduct a rigorous screening and sales assessment on the short listed applicants and only put in front of the client 6 candidates that passed our stringent criteria. The client was really impressed with whom they met and I am pleased to say that they have selected the top 2 candidates that surpassed their expectations in a record time of 3 weeks. Simply put, your team has removed the stress and hassle it would have taken us to sort through the 600+ CV's received in order to get to evaluate the right candidates before submitting them to our client to interview. If you are looking to recruit new staff, I would highly recommend you speak with Tom to discover how his team can help take away the pain of doing so. They will get the job done and give you peace of mind.

Elsa Roodt - Co-Founder

I would like to thank you and the italent team for the services we received. We have been trying to fill a PR Director role for well over 12 months using our own contacts and posting on a selection of jobsites. All our efforts fell of deaf ears and we saw no results. We looked at many options of getting a recruiter involved but our budgets didn’t allow us to do so. That’s when we decided to go with italent and they managed to get the campaign for the PR Director up in a day and the results where impressive. We had top-notch candidates within 48 hours. I was honestly amazed at the quality and volume of excellent candidates you produced. We are very pleased with the service and I will recommend this to all my friends and business associates as the way forward in recruiting.

Stewart Arbuckle - Managing Director

I would like to thank you for the role you and your team played in sourcing for me an ideal sales person. My industry is a very specialized one and finding an experienced sales person is not so easy. I was impressed with firstly the speed at which you processed my recruitment vacancy and secondly with the timely response with which I was able to view a qualified batch of cv’s. Topping this was your personal involvement in targeting the ideal candidate for which I am happy to say we have offered them the position and they have accepted.

Mohammed El Hijazi - Director

It gives me great pleasure today to write about our experience with italent We hired a new Interior Designer as a result of some great work. We have been looking for the perfect candidate for the last 6 months to fill this particular Position. After a quick turnaround time the filtering process on their end was key in finding our winning candidate. We would be happy to share our experience and recommend italent with confidence to any business owner expanding their team.

Nicholas Cully - Director

The results have been fantastic and we have 2 new administrators and 4 more consultants coming to work for us as a result. We will certainly be happy to recommend the service to our clients.

Himanshu Verma - Managing Director APAC Region

I was initially reluctant due to lack of italent local presence and understanding of Singapore's hiring environment. However italent did a thorough job of understanding our requirements, analyzed the markets and put together an effective strategy to source relevant candidates. They used clever data mining processes and digital search techniques to solve our hiring problems. I have been impressed by the quality of the candidates, speed of delivery and particularly the service given by the team.

Farrukh Zia - Human Resource Executive

We tried italent unique way of recruiting with a position we had not managed to fill and we are pleased to say we found the candidate we had been looking for. The italent system made browsing our candidates very simple and saved us significant amounts of time compared to our previous methods of recruiting. The customer service we received from italent throughout our campaign was fantastic and they truly listened to our requirements.

Aruna Tak - HR Director

Recruitment is a fundamental part of my job, therefore, dealing with italent was an invaluable investment made by us to assist in our resourcing requirements. The service provided by italent was very professional; they understood our requirements and criteria which resulted in quality candidates. Customer service is crucial to their business and they have this in abundance. I would 100% recommend their services to my HR associates.

Pauline Leale - Managing Director

I have managed to fill both positions with 2 very good people from London, thanks again for your help.

Nichola Reece-Burton - Senior Legal Consultant

I would like to thank italent for making the whole process of finding a corporate/commercial lawyer so much less complicated, laborious and expensive than we have previously endured. Once we informed you of our requirements, we found that the candidates filtered by your company whom we were able to short-list have been not only numerous but also of a very high calibre. From that short-list we have now interviewed and found a suitable candidate for the role who also has vast experience in a range of other areas of law and will hopefully prove to be a productive and versatile member of our team. Thank-you once again for your efforts and for the level of service and professional courtesy that you have shown to us throughout this process. We would not hesitate to use your services again and to recommend both you and your company to other associates in the future.

Dies Poppeliers - Managing Director

I have been impressed with the methods used by italent when searching for quality employees. Having used various companies in the Middle East, I feel their service to by far superior than any of the others. At the end of the day, this is all about results – and these guys have delivered. The structure that is in place is very impressive. The system they use with their created ‘filtered’ database separates them from their competitors. Their structure provides you with a backed up, simplistic vision + high calibre of responses. I will be using their service again, when we recruit more individuals to our firm. Take care guys and thanks for all your work.

Sherif Abaza - Managing Partner

Over the course of the years, it has become clear to us that one of the toughest decisions we have to make as an organisation is the hiring decision. So when we found a partner that makes this process easier, takes a load off your shoulders and makes the search process easy, simple, and very intuitive, we were more than pleased. italent offered an exceptionally simple and efficient service and coupled that with great customer service making our experience of working with them one we are keen on repeating. Of course it didn’t hurt that we successfully hired through them in 3 weeks for a position that had been on the market for over 6 months. We will definitely use their services again and suggest you do too.

Mariam Al Kassab - Founder / MD

I honestly can't remember when I last received an outstanding service like what I got from italent. I have just been so impressed how knowledgeable and genuine you guys are from start to finish your service has been more than excellent. It has been a pleasure doing business with you and when I need more staff it is no doubt I will be contacting you.

Tony Murray - Operations Manager

The system is great, really simple and we got loads of great CV's.

Mark Castley - Sales Manager

We recently set up with italent for recruitment of an extra sales floor due to office expansion. Tom and rest of the team where excellent from start to finish we over achieved on our expected numbers. We are now entering a contract on a monthly basis and we are confident that we can open further branches achieving the quality of applicants we require from italent. Thanks again guys

Domenic Zaffino - General Manager

We used iitalent to fill 3 positions for BDM, we found the calibre of candidates received was exactly what we were looking for. I would recommend using italent as they do all the initial legwork of sorting and we need only to interview the cream of the crop.

Suzanne Sutherland - Director

I have always found italent more effective than traditional recruitment methods. We have hired some great candidates from their efforts and has been cost effective throughout our time using them.

Gareth Pierce - Director

italent provided us with a very professional recruitment service. They took time to understand our company needs and used their excellent system to provide us with good candidates. Some of which are now part of our team, we will definitely be using italent for future recruitment requirements.

Martin Hyre - Sales Director

I first found the guys of italent through Linked In and was looking for assistance with our recruitment process. I quickly discovered that it was the best recruitment decision I have made. Nothing is too much trouble for the team and they are rare in their receptiveness of new ideas and ways to move their own business forward as much as ours. I am happy to say that we are delighted with the service we receive from the guys, they are always happy to help and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Sawan Karia - Associate Director

We used italent for our employment needs and were very pleased with the service and quick turnaround achieved. We would certainly use them again and happily recommend them to companies interested in finding a quick, reasonable, solution to their staffing needs.

Robin Teh - Country Manager

Since the recovery of the real estate market in Dubai, Chesterton had been looking to increase its work force of Sales and Leasing Brokers as well as Valuation Surveyors in order to expand our services to more clients, both Dubai and in the UAE. We have tried the normal traditional ways of recruitment via newspaper advert as well as appointing recruitment companies that charges a high percentage for recruitment fees. Both methods had limited success and the cost was spiraling up which was wiping out our recruitment budget. Since knowing italent from Adam’s presentation, Chesterton had engaged their services and with a small upfront fee (as compared to the recruiters!), italent started by understanding our needs and then helping us sort out and recruit the right candidates for the positions. The staff has been very helpful especially our Account Manager that was assigned to us. He was very patient and also very pro active to us by calling and spending time teaching how best to maximize the services given by italent. It has been a very worthwhile investment and we have managed to recruit a number of staff off the services given by italent I will not hesitate to recommend Adam and italent to others in need of recruitment services.

Daniella Williams - Managing Director

As an accounting and business consultancy, we recently saw a dramatic increase in new clients and hence, urgently required new staff on short notice. I didn't have time to surf online portals for hundreds of accounting CVs that I knew would be a waste of time. I contacted Craig from italent to see if he could assist. He was quickly able to offer a low cost, efficient and speedy alternative to using a recruitment agency or waste time advertising via online portals. After completing a 5 minute questionnaire, my job description requirements were set up in the italent online system and the team at italent got busy filtering CVs for me. Within 2 days I sourced a handful of CVs that were suitable and me my criteria. Within 1 week, I hired 2 accountants! I would highly recommend using Craig and the team at italent as they were very knowledgeable and always accommodating, guiding us throughout the entire process in order to make sure that everything went smoothly.

Joshua Holt - Managing Partner
Industry Type: Real Estate

I contacted Tom from italent after connecting with him on Linkedin and requested his assistance with recruiting for my new company. After creating an account and giving him the advert description, the job post was on a number of portals within hours and the CV’s started flooding in. The system they have which filters possible candidates is fantastic and really easy to use. I have employed 4 people from the campaign and will contact Tom again for our next recruitment drive.

Ramez Helou - Founder

Recruiting the right person is key and the only way to do that is by widening the search to generate enough options in making that final selection. With the amount of people that apply for a role, another key factor is to be able to sort through the plethora of CV's that any company would receive. Like using a product or service for the first time, I was a bit apprehensive. Yet within a few days, your team had filtered very relevant CV's which we continued to receive over the 28 days period. Simply put, your team has really removed the stress and hassle it would have taken us to sort through the 1000's of CV's received.

Sumeet Nayer - CEO

As one of the key roles as the head of UHY Saxena, I am tasked to restructure some of the key divisions within the firm which meant – Hiring. As you all know it involves spending hours designing and writing an advertisement and then posting, the follow ups etc. We did receive many CV’s in response to any advert placed, but a high percentage of applicants did not have the experience or qualifications that we needed. Ultimately, I decided, to use Adam’s recruitment services to help us sort out our recruitment process. This undoubtedly was one of the best decisions we took, as the process of recruitment through Adam’s services was not just convenient, it saved us valuable time, CVs were of very high calibre and we finally ended up by hiring 2 people for our advisory division. Adam’s service deliverables are impeccable and we believe the fee paid to I-Expatriate was a strategic investment in finding top talent to upgrade your department and company, and not an extraneous expense. I would highly recommend I-expatriate and Adam to any company looking to recruit staff. Please do yourself a favour and hire I-Expatriate.

John Watkinson - Director

A couple of months ago, I realised the need for a couple of new recruits within Joie Design. I had previously struggled with finding designers within the region. Many people claim to be designers, but in fact are merely layout artists, as a result this makes finding talent at the required level extremely difficult. I knew of italent and based on their track record asked them to help me on my quest. They were efficient, swift and remarkably effective. We had 809 applicants for the job out of which italent whittled it down to the top 80. I was then able to use their efficient website and mark each candidate with a YES, No or Maybe. In no time at all, I had settled on a prospective 4 candidates out of which I hired 2 assets to my company. The process was simple and easy enough for me to understand, and more to the point it worked. I would very happily use italent and their services to recruit again and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

James Ellison - Managing Director

We employed italent to recruit 6 staff for us from the UK. We had in excess of 2000 CV’s of which we managed to over fill spaces and are now expanding into a larger office with the help of the team at italent.

Paniko Lawrence - Managing Partner

Would just like to say how impressed I have been with not only the response to our campaign but also the quality of the candidates. I did have initial reservations on how effective this service would be, but it has certainly exceeded all my expectations.

Saboohi Khan - Managing Director

Due to our understanding of the online marketplace we can truly appreciate an innovative product such as italent

Daniel Draper - Operations Manager

Having spent hours and hours trawling trough CV’s and wasting time and money on various job portals I came across italent. They made the whole process of recruitment seem easy and freed up more time for me to concentrate on other areas of my business. With improved results in the first month the return on investment is a no brainer!
