International Testimonials

"Despite being based in the region for over ten years, I struggled to identify a suitable position via my network and at the point of giving up on my UAE job search, I registered with McCall and shortly after I secured an opportunity in Dubai which I am delighted with.

If you are an experienced recruitment professional with international experience and struggling to identify an opportunity in the region, make sure you connect with Julie O’Neil of McCall."

Andrew - Candidate

“McCall where extremely professional from the very first contact. They have a great understanding of the marketplace, client and the client requirement as well as understanding the relocation process. I truly found this a hassle free move with McCall working quickly and efficiently to deal with all my queries.”

James Rigg - Client (Operations Director – Asia Medacs Healthcare)

"Julie was recently working on a retained brief for an NED role for one of the largest, most respected staffing firms in the Middle East. She introduced me into the process believing my International and recent experience with Phaidon International would be beneficial to her client's needs. Suffice to say-she was spot on and I commenced this exciting position three months ago."

Stuart - Candidate

“I have only good words for Mccall work. My process has been a bit atypical involving 2 countries with 5 hours difference. The process has run for almost 4 months during which Julie has been in contact with me providing me with immediate feedback and always taking into consideration my comments and concerns when speaking with her client. The negotiation of my contract was not easy and she showed a great conciliation skills. I have been working in the recruitment industry for a while now and I can truly recommend Julie and the Mccall team. Thank you!!!!”

Eduardo Perin - Candidate (placed in Chile)

"McCall helped me secure a fantastic role in the Cayman Islands. From start to finish there service was exceptional and I can't recommend them highly enough. My Consultant, Julie, was on hand whenever I needed her which was a huge help. I now live in the Caribbean, pay no tax and work with an amazing firm!"

Alistair - Candidate

"McCall is assisting in my search for an Executive role in EMEA and APAC over the last few months. As a consultant managing my own business in Asia, McCall were able to gain work an interim project for me utilising my skills in a full company/country launch for an international Boutique looking to enter in an emerging market. The project comprised of selection of Local MD, premise, budget and licence application. Through the project I have been able to use my expertise and build a further network in the region at the same time. Many thanks to Julie and her team in representing me for both permanent and interim projects."

Nicola - Candidate

"Whilst in the process of relocating from the UK to Dubai with my husbands job, Julie was my first point of call. She gave honest feedback about the clients she represents and was the utmost professional throughout the process. Whilst I didn't expect to start working in Dubai until 2017, Julie and her team managed to source the perfect role, based in the perfect location, ticking all boxes from a career progression perspective and a start date of October 2016, something I didn't think would be possible. I can't thank Julie and her team enough for all the support as it certainly made the move to Dubai much easier for me and my family."

Jenny - Candidate

"I cant recommend McCall's enough! From the very first time I spoke with Julie, there was nothing but professionalism and integrity. Julie was extremely up front and honest about what I was to expect and never misled me in any way. I knew it was going to be difficult in finding a job in Dubai but Julie made the process extremely painless, obtaining me a firm and great job offer within 2 weeks! Needless to say I am extremely happy with Julies work and McCall's as a whole. I will most definitely be recommending in the future"

Omar - Candidate 

"Julie is a highly professional and knowledgeable recruiter. Her help was of great value when I moved to the UAE 9 years ago for my first job here. I was contacted by Shelly initially and later she put me through to Julie. Both Shelly and Julie done there best to find the right company for me and supported me throughout the recruitment process (which ended successfully) with her honest advice and useful information. I have hardly ever met other recruiters as dedicated to the candidate's success as they are. Julie is not only driven by the business necessities but she is also an empathic individual and she genuinely cares about the candidate's satisfaction as well as their personal situation."

Siji A Abraham - Candidate

"I would like to thank Julie of McCall for all her great efforts. She really took the time to get to know me and put me forward for jobs that suited my skills and personality. Unlike other recruitment agencies, McCall placed me according to my ability and potential rather than just placing me in similar positions I had held in the past. I highly recommend Julie as a professional, diligent and extremely competent recruiter with a huge client database and great connections in many different countries. McCall were prompt, knowledgeable and professional and made the recruitment process extremely simple. I have now moved out of the UK and to the UAE in such a smooth relocation and in a position that will help me develop and grow. I cannot thank Julie and the team at McCall enough."

Fares Al Bayati - Candidate

"Julie is a thorough professional in her field. She has been very helpful during the whole recruitment process. As an overseas candidate, I have received a lot of guidance and support from her whenever I needed it. She has been more of a friend than a consultant. Julie understands the importance of cultural differences and other challenges of recruitment for overseas markets. She goes the extra mile to understand the person, not just the list of qualifications and experience on a CV. With myself and my employer being based in different countries across different time zones, it was Julie's meticulous coordination, prompt responses and valuable feedback that made it very easy to liaise with the employer all along."

Olga Smeyan - Candidate

"We could not be happier with the service provided to us by McCall as a recruitment supporter and by Julie O'Neill in particular. From the accurate understanding of our complex brief, to the introduction of ideal candidates and the detailed care required to move a candidate internationally, McCall's service has always been exemplary. We would not hesitate to partner with McCall again."

Richard Weetch - Managing Partner BWP 

“Empiric was awarded "Best Newcomer" to Asia at the Global Recruiter 2012 awards. Peter has been instrumental in helping us build the team in Singapore that achieved this accolade. As far as i can tell himself and David Bolland also of McCall are the only Rec2Rec's worth speaking to in the region. Empiric have used Peter fairly exclusively because it is very clear he absolutely gets are our business objectives, the shortlist of candidates he provides Empiric with reflects his understanding very well. The relationship he has with the recruiter community in Singapore has allowed us to engage with a level of candidate that a typical "Newcomer" would struggle to achieve. I strongly recommend Peter as the "Go-To" recruiter for Singapore.” 

Sam Kamyar

"Talent2 are a leading player in the Asia-Pacific Recruitment/HRO space, but are relatively unknown in the UK. McCall's challenge was to identify top-tier candidates and to introduce them to the Talent2 value proposition. They filled the brief admirably, placing me into the Head of Technology role and relocating several 'high flyers' who wished to effect significant lifestyle changes and take advantage of the low-taxation environment. In the first phase of the recruitment campaign McCalls filled three senior positions based out of Hong Kong." 

Peter Udall, Head of IT&T Practice, Talent2 Hong Kong

"Once again thank you for all your hard work and professionalism in my job search. I will definitely be using you again if I am in the need of a new consultant and would recommend you to any consultants looking for work." 


"My experiences with McCall's were first class from initial enquiry to successful placement. The personal service afforded to me in listening to and understanding my individual and professional requirements was only surpassed by the depth and breadth of the interesting and challenging opportunities they offered to me.
McCall's remained flexible to my changing requirements from seeking UK based employment to finally securing my dream position in Australia. Throughout the whole process the team at McCall's kept me fully informed of developments, often after business hours, and matched my skills to a wide variety of opportunities across many sectors. I have been truly delighted with their services and would not have any hesitation in recommending their services to other professionals." 

Andy Almond, candidate

"I was contacted by McCall re: a position Overseas, I found them professional in there attitude from the first contact. They understood the confidentiality of the situation and handle the negations between myself and the future employer with utter professionalism. I would certainly use and recommend there services in the future."
