What's important to MENA hiring managers at interviews?

Cobalt’s 2016 Interview & Assessment Survey results are out. The data has been compiled from our clients and we canvassed the opinions of Analysts, AVPs, Directors through to CFOs and CEOs across MENA.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Find out what factors are most important to hiring managers when interviewing
  • 27% of companies use competency based interview techniques - find out how to prepare for this type of interview

James Collin, Head of UAE comments:

"Despite 2016 being an unpredictable year in many respects, our survey that went to 500 Hiring Managers showed that most business managers continued their hiring levels and had no drop off from last year. The majority of hires have been key and critical roles, with some in new areas such as Digital and therefore the emphasis on a well managed recruitment and selection process has never been more important. Our survey provides real insight to jobseekers preparing to interview and to clients looking to recruit. We hope it is useful and please get in contact with one of our consultants should you need any help."
