Our Services

Our niche sector driven approach allows us to recruit at all levels of seniority, through tailored recruitment solutions. Through contingency recruitment, advertised selection and executive search, we can efficiently and effectively meet our clients’ recruitment requirements from MRICS qualified Surveyors and Analysts through to Senior Director Level.


  •  Contingency Recruitment

    A successful contingency campaign depends on a high quality, up to date and relevant database of candidates which can be tapped into instantly. Cobalt has the most up-to-date technology in its database which enables candidates’ careers to be tracked and they are instantly notified of appropriate new requirements. Instructing Cobalt on a contingency basis immediately opens up a network of over 70,000 real estate candidates worldwide.

    Selection uses the medium of recruitment advertising to find candidates for a wide range of positions. Cobalt’s services include the creative design and placement of appropriate advertisements. We can advertise on a joint branded or anonymous basis.

  •  Executive Search

    Cobalt consultants are fully trained in the processes of executive search. This allows them to source both senior executives and those professionals with rare skill sets at all levels that are difficult to attract through advertised and database selection. They are supported by a dedicated in-house research team who map and identify key individuals within specific markets.

  •  Temporary, Contract and Interim Recruitment

    We offer interim solutions across the market having consolidated our ability to recruit highly qualified and reliable interim professionals. We recruit interims at all levels of qualification for leading professional services and principal organisations, complementing the work we do on the permanent recruitment side.

    About Us

    Cobalt was established in Abu Dhabi in January 2009 to offer high quality HR consultancy, specialist search and recruitment services in Abu Dhabi and the wider MENA Region. The team has grown steadily since then and now works extensively within the fields of Financial Services, Construction & Engineering, Human Resources, Business Support, Sales & Marketing and UAE Nationals/Emiratization.

    Having chosen Abu Dhabi as the base for our MENA Headquarters and Dubai as our second office, we are excited to be part of what is happening, both here in the Capital of the UAE and in the wider region. We contribute by playing a key role in identifying and attracting the very best talent to ensure the region’s potential is realised. Our successful development has been a direct result of the fact that our long-standing sector expertise is neatly aligned with the needs of the Abu Dhabi and GCC Markets. Within the UAE Cobalt also understands the importance of Emiratization in ensuring the long-term success of the UAEeconomy. We have therefore pro-actively developed a strong network of UAENationals within our specialist areas to ensure that we can offer a truly local solution wherever possible.

    On an international basis, Cobalt is known for recruiting, training and retaining high quality consultants and offering all employees the opportunity to advance and develop their career in different markets. This ensures that they develop as broad an understanding of their sectors as possible.

    The UAE Team currently consists of specialists focusing on the following areas:

    Sector Coverage:

    • Financial Services
    • Construction and Engineering
    • Infrastructure
    • Real Estate
    • UAE Nationals
    • Human Resources & Business Support

    Sales & Marketing

    Our Relationships

    Cobalt’s consultants understand the importance of strong relationships, and this is especially true in the MENA Region. We work hard to develop a deep understanding of our clients’ cultures and strategic objectives. This knowledge gives us a unique ability to recruit at all professional levels, adding value to organisations immediately and in the future. Consultants at Cobalt have an impressive knowledge of their specialist sector, often having been attracted to Cobalt directly from industry.
    Having come through challenging times, we are confident that the economies of the MENA region and that of Abu Dhabi in particular, are now entering a period of stable, sustainable growth. Our business will grow with Abu Dhabi and we look forward to building upon the solid foundations laid since the business was established by adding new sectors and areas of expertise.
