Recruiting for the GCC


The Hospitality industry is the world’s fastest growing industry accountable for earning incredible profits in the international market place. Due to various tourism based events such as the World Cup, as well as shopping festivals, Commonwealth Games and other such events the growth in the industry is fast paced and its recruiting needs insatiable.


Hotel companies have benefited substantially from long-term macroeconomic trends. The growth in Global GDP in the last 10 years has been approximately 3.6 per cent per annum, contributed by a rise in the number of middle-class households and an increase in their disposable incomes.


Vira international offers recruitment solutions in the Gulf region and have been recruiting in this space for the past 30 years.
