How the best headhunters go about their work

The first task for oil and Gas Headhunters in the GCC is to consult with the employer to establish their specific needs. They’ll take into account working culture, along with wider goals and ambitions of the business so that they are better equipped to sell the position to any candidates they target. 

In terms of cost, leading oil and Gas Headhunters in the GCC typically charge up to 25% of the basic salary for contingency recruitment services, whereas the same recruitment agency may charge between 25-40% for the more comprehensive service of retained recruitment.
