About Us

Who we are

A strategic talent advisory and delivery business enabling clients to improve their performance through better talent acquisition. Parisima achieves this by implementing world-class talent acquisition functions with the right people and technology or by undertaking the projects directly, allowing clients to fully outsource their challenges.

From Board and Executive moves, through to training, strategic hiring projects and complex recruitment programmes across geographies, Parisima has the expertise to provide best practice, cost effective and agile solutions.

Optimising the relationship between recruitment and advisory, Parisima creates best-in-class talent solutions

Why Parisma

Parisima Talent was founded with the belief that recruitment in the region can and should be done better.

Finding people who can transform your business isn’t easy in an area where talent can be in frustratingly short supply. Parisima’s experience and tools give you the ability to attract the best people quickly and easily.

Parisima is confident in optimising your recruitment

  • Decades of experience working within the industry across the Middle East and internationally.
  • Designed, implemented and managed talent acquisition strategies for both local and international organisations and understand how RPO adds value to your broader talent management lifecycle.
  • Flexibility. Combining all the skill and experience of the bigger RPO companies but with more agility – so Parisima is more responsive and better suited to the fast changing needs of a growth market.
  • Worked in the region for many years and understand the specific challenges faced by employers in the Middle East.
  • A passion for fixing resourcing issues and a desire to share that with clients to help meet their needs

To understand your business Parisima works as part of it

World-class recruitment needs great recruiters, using leading edge tools to manage the best process for your business. Parisima helps clients in any of these areas to improve their resourcing.

Parisima supports organisations to optimise their talent acquisition capability. For some, this may mean becoming part, or all, of their recruitment function. For others, it may be providing specialist skills, tools or infrastructure to complement their internal resources.

One size does not fit all. A bespoke resourcing solution is required for each client to meet their specific needs. Either way, Parisima has the resourcing expertise that differentiates you as a prospective employer.
