Retail Recruitment in UAE

Specialist retail recruitment in the United Arab Emirates and across the Persian Gulf? Make Zachary Daniels part of your team.

Retail recruitment in the UAE (and beyond) that works for retailers

We’re a UK retail recruiter. So what is it that makes us a natural choice for recruitment in the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain and across the Persian Gulf? Partly, it’s because we have so much experience in helping exceptional talent find new opportunities globally. Partly it’s because we have a long history of supporting brands as they grow internationally. Partly it’s because we’ve been helping place great candidates with great brands in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Manama and Kuwait City for years.

Retail recruitment in the UAE (and beyond) that works for candidates

You’ve got ambitions to take your retail career to the Gulf States. But working in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain or Kuwait demands more than the ability to impress on a CV or at an interview. Zachary Daniels’ recruitment specialists know that working internationally doesn’t just mean a change of job; it’s a change of life. That’s why they’ll work with you and your new employer to make the move simple, enjoyable and rewarding.


Why choose Zachary Daniels for retail recruitment in the Persian Gulf?

There are plenty of other retail recruitment agencies in the UAE, Kuwait and Bahrain you could talk to (although don’t feel as though you have to). So why us?

Retail recruiters to support your transformation

Everywhere you look across retail in the Gulf, change is happening. A savvy customer expects better, faster service and cheaper prices. Data, and the ability to analyse it and use it, is more important than ever.

Analysts predict the value of e-commerce will reach $8 by 2025, more than double its value in 2019. Delivering that transformation means tapping into a global pool of talent and experience. And with years of experience in finding and managing the flow of talent between the UK and the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain, we know how to support your ambitions.

Make us part of your team

Your in-house Dubai recruitment team is doing a perfectly good job of meeting your recruitment needs across the Gulf States. But what happens when you want to run a major recruitment drive that would overwhelm your existing team? 

Bringing in our retail recruitment specialists as your support keeps your in-house team in control, gives you the capability to flexibly upscale your team as and when you need it, and gives you the global retail market perspective to complement your local expertise.

Recruiters for that crucial appointment

You have local recruiters who are perfectly capable of sourcing the majority of staff to operate your stores and warehouses. But when it comes to certain executive appointments – the people with the expertise and reputation to drive your next stage of growth – sometimes you need to look wider.

Our recruitment specialists know where to find industry-leading talent – we helped place much of it. Leverage our contacts.


Specialist retail recruitment in the UAE, Bahrain and Kuwait

From compliance to management, finance to FMCG, we’ve got the people to handle your retail recruitment. Right now, we’re seeing real growth in the following specialist areas:

Digital and technology: Nowhere is digital more transformative than in the Gulf States right now. Take the UAE. As the instant payments platform transforms a traditional cash-first society into an electronic one, so the need for experts in the digital and tech space grows. Find them with us.

Supply chain and logistics: It’s about the last mile. It’s about the global security of supply. It’s about carbon footprints. Whether you need expertise in the micro or macro of the supply chain and logistics function, find it with us.

Retail operations: Bringing a store/area/regional manager from overseas to your UAE, Kuwait or Bahrain retail business isn’t easy. Because even when you’ve found someone with the right skillset and experience, how do you know they’ll make a comfortable transition? How do you know they’ll fit with your brand? We spend as much time understanding the person as their skills, so when we recommend them for an interview, we know they’ll thrive.

About Zachary Daniels

In 2012, we set up a boutique retail recruitment agency that would be run the way we felt an agency should be run. Personal. Passionate. Really committed to our clients, candidates and our team – so much so that we made the company employee-owned (a bit like John Lewis) so everyone here could have a stake in our success. 

It was an approach that struck a chord, so we grew. But we still have that boutique, personal feel, because we know that’s what our clients value most about us.

What our clients say:


Kerry Rose rocked my professional path! I couldn’t help but notice in her approach the support, care, and push you would receive from a best friend or a parent. She taught me some valuable lessons, which I will cherish, and encouraged me to take a long overdue step up in my career. Thank you Kerry! (Kerry Rose – Feb 2020)


The communication was always good throughout the entire hiring process. I would like to highlight particularly the good cooperation with Adem Ismail who was helping out in any arising questions on an interpersonal level. Even after employment Adem made sure that everything went as planned and expected.


David was always available when I contacted Zachary Daniels, and was hugely supportive and encouraging to me, in what was quite a major and Nerve-racking move for me at my age! David organised interviews in a very timely and competent manner, and I felt he guided me through the entire process in a very friendly and professional manner. I did feel that I had support and backup throughout the entire process. Well done David!
