Macdonald & Company strengthen architecture and design recruitment consultancy team

Expansion aims to address growing demand for architecture and design professionals in the region.

Amidst the rapid rise of the regional real estate market, currently valued at US $1.2 trillion, Macdonald & Company, recruitment consultancy focusing solely on the property industry, has announced the expansion of its architecture and design recruiting team.

With a view towards managing expectations on both fronts, Macdonald & Company will seek to tackle the growing demands of developers looking for quality professionals whilst also advising industry professionals striving to enter the Middle East market.

“As property developments being built in the region today continue to create world records not only in terms of scope and size but also in aesthetics and high-technology features, acquiring highly competent architects and design professionals with relevant experience is a major concern for all developers and consultancies operating within the region,” said Guy Source, Senior Associate, Macdonald & Company.

“The expansion of our architecture and design recruitment team is aimed at helping our clients find the best candidates for their required positions both locally and internationally throughout our network of offices. We are also keen on providing excellent employment opportunities to qualified applicants who are seeking to further their careers in the Middle East.”

Developers’ efforts to address the requirements of increasingly discerning investors are continuously driving the need for highly qualified and experienced practitioners, specifically in the fields of architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, urban design and planning.

“Our focus is to bridge the gap between organisations and qualified professionals that will further fuel the growth of the regional real estate sector. We have consistently provided the best career options to industry professionals as well as valuable recruitment insights to companies that have enabled them to attract and retain an efficient team,” said Matthew Taylor, international director, Macdonald & Company.

The results will provide employees and employers with accurate industry figures as it is an independently run, confidential survey with results coming directly from the market itself,” he added.
