Contract & Project Hiring

Outsourced / Consultancy / Contract / Interim

Aventus Global Talent’s consulting model gives our clients the opportunity to compliantly deploy specialist staff quickly for fixed time periods on an outsourced basis. In these cases, Aventus will typically manage VISA’s and payroll so the consultant will not be on our client’s headcount.

The consultancy model has been gaining popularity in the region as interim consultants can effectively impact change, they often add a wealth of experience from multiple projects, along with strong, influential stakeholder management abilities.

Although technology projects are typically the most popular area for interim hiring, we also support clients in other areas, for example financial services, procurement, marketing, strategy, HR, and legal. The model is also often an interesting solution for businesses as it typically means GCC nationalization figures are not affected. Aventus has the ability to recruit and supply contract staff in a compliant manner all over the Middle East and further afield.

Why use contractors?

Project Hiring

Resources to be deployed on site quickly for project-based work

Contract-To-Hire

Clients can hire resources quickly for an initial contract period, with the option to turn the consultant into a full-time employee later.

Shadow Interim Experts

Shadowing is useful where knowledge transfer is required from a subject matter expert

Subject Matter Experts

Where clients need specific specialist skills, to help drive and impact change 

Entry Business Set Up

We can support clients looking to set up in the Middle East with consultative advice on set-up options, VISA management, payroll options and local business knowledge 

Workforce Gap Fills

We can cover gaps in the workforce, for example maternity cover, long term sickness, or to cover long notice periods for new permanent hires
