Business Manager - Project Management/Transformation
I joined Michael Page in 2013 on the Graduate Scheme as part of the Consultancy, Strategy & Change division based in London. After a brief spell doing an interim desk, it was realized my strengths lay within Permanent recruitment and I switched to this in 2014. After getting the opportunity to work and report directly to some extremely talented Directors, I was promoted a number of times and attained Manager in 2017. I was tasked with leading and growing our Projects & Change practice, with both an interim and permanent team, and focusing my personal billings in the permanent private sector space.
After almost 6 years in the London office, it was time for a change and I wanted to broaden my horizons. I applied for an international transfer and relocated to the Middle East, based in Dubai. With the unwavering support from my MD in London and my new MD & Director in Dubai, flights, visas and accommodation were all handled by PageGroup to ensure a smooth transition.
My role here is to develop and grow our PMO, Strategy & Transformation offering in Saudi Arabia. With the unrivaled exposure to completely different cultures and a whole new way of working, it is a fantastic challenge to take on and allows me to grow my career path in a new direction. The opportunity to partner with some key parts of both the government and private sector in Saudi Arabia during the region’s transformation is exactly the type of exciting challenge I was looking for.
