Home 5 About Us

Meet us now,
meet colleagues later.

We’re Xpat Today, a boutique recruitment agency that likes to get personal – because you can’t get the human out of Human Resources.

Matching skills to job descriptions is not our job description. It’s about finding and connecting individuals and businesses that can thrive together. We take the time to learn about your company’s culture, your people, and what could really make a difference to the work.

There’s a world of people out there waiting to be the next best thing that could’ve happened to your business. Literally.

We’re strategically located in Dubai and have been connecting the region to some of the best talents since 2015, with global reach and a limitless pool of professionals.

We need to talk about Sarah.

Meet Sarah, a Dutch woman with Indonesian roots, living as an expat in Dubai. With an eye for talent and a mind for business, she’s the driving force behind Xpat Today.

Having called Dubai home since 2015, Sarah has spent eight years on the other side – that’s your side – working as an HR Manager. But all good things must come to an end, and she decided it was time for a change.

In 2023, she launched Xpat Today to address the market’s demand for a more personalized approach to hiring, valuing long term relationships and achieving high retention rates.

Sarah proudly declares herself a people’s person, living up to the ultimate HR cliché. And since we’re here, we also need to talk about Sarah’s cooking skills. She can whip up (and savor) delicious dishes from various cuisines. Finding the best ingredients to every meal — and every company.

Now is when you tell us all about you and what you need so we can work our magic*.

*Not really magic; it’s actually a lot of work, but we love it.
