According to Industry sources, these appointments have come as Parisima Talent enters the latest phase in its growth, with a surge in client demand across its Recruitment Process Outsourcing, Contract Staffing, and Permanent Placement businesses in the UAE, KSA, and wider Middle East.

Industry sources also added that Grace has more than 10 years’ experience in talent acquisition in the UK and Middle East markets. With a natural ability to understand people, she partners with employees and employers on a level that enables long-term, sustainable relationships. Throughout her career, she has sourced, built, and coached successful teams, from entry-level to experienced consultants.  Her focus at Parisima Talent is on growing and developing a team of professionals to bring personalized service to clients and candidates, with a commitment to building genuine, lasting partnerships.

Industry sources also further confirmed that Vanessa brings over 15 years of expertise and know-how to Parisima Talent, where her experience is key to the company’s expansion. Her career began as a recruiter in the banking and finance sector, leading a team of industry-specialist recruitment consultants and all Emiratisation initiatives.  At Parisima, she heads a dedicated, growing team specializing in large-volume recruitment in the UAE, KSA, and wider region handling around 500 hires a year.  Among her focus areas are providing strategic direction, enhancing Parisima’s solutions and services by leveraging talent, technology, and data, and fostering strong relationships with customers and colleagues.

Tiago Costa, Chief Executive Officer, of Parisima Talent

Tiago Costa, Chief Executive Officer, of Parisima Talent, stated: “Parisima Talent continues to go from strength to strength, and I am delighted to welcome Grace and Vanessa on board. Joining us at a crucial point in our business expansion, these talented professionals bring unrivaled knowledge and expertise that will be pivotal to our growth and evolution across the Middle East. Their appointments also come at a time when the importance of women in the workplace – particularly in KSA, where increasing participation of females in KSA’s staffing is expected to boost the country’s economy by US39 billion by 2032 – is under the spotlight like never before. Women now make up more than half of 1,200 associates and staff at Parisima Talent; a testament to the interpersonal skills and brilliant service that they bring to our sector.”

Industry sources also added that headquartered in Dubai with an office in Abu Dhabi, Parisima Talent ventured into KSA last year with a new office in Riyadh as part of its wider expansion plan, with a move into India and Egypt.  The company is also present in 32 other markets globally.
