About Jamie Essex


My name is Jamie Essex originally from the North West UK. I recruit Senior Finance & Accounting for industry & commerce across the GCC.

Professional Expertise:

Experience recruiting senior level finance professionals across a variety of industries with Global Blue Chip clients, including but not limited to FMCG, F&B and Retail.

Career Summary:

I started my career within FMCG and F&B, shortly after moving in to recruitment to use my expertise within these industries to fulfil the needs of clients and candidates internationally.

Why recruitment?

A sales environment provides a strong sense of competition, alongside giving you the opportunity to manage your own business, client and candidate base. You are helping the needs of individuals for some of the biggest decisions in their lives.

Industry Insights:

Every business regardless of the industry has a Finance & Accounting function, it is vital the right people are in the right positions to make a business run optimally. F&B, Retail and FMCG in the GCC are dominant markets and a huge part of the economy, driving demand for qualified and experienced professionals in this space.

What is your approach to recruitment / executive search?

I like to take a simple approach to recruitment, to build effective, long-term relationships and to act as an extension of the clients/candidates I am representing to ensure their best interests are always put first.

Success Stories:

A recent campaign with one of the world’s largest food manufacturers, placing a senior group role responsible for their four largest manufacturing sites.

Why Aventus:

Aventus offer an opportunity to become part of a high-performance environment with the constant guidance of industry experts in the Directors, Managers and Consultants. A business offering continuous development and the culture they have was something I couldn’t turn down.
