About EWS

EWS offers a range of recruitment related services, including retained search, advertised selection, targeted approaches and candidate due diligence. Every year EWS publishes what is widely regarded as the most authoritative GCC Legal Salary Survey.

Responsibility for every aspect of a search, whether local, regional or global, remains with us. EWS does not outsource any aspect of its research as we like to personally deliver every element of the search including all initial and on-going contact with candidates. As well as ensuring your organisation is accurately represented at every stage, this also ensures that at every point in the process we can measure each candidate’s suitability to living and working in the Middle East.

Setting a new benchmark for professionalism, dedication and service
