Managing director of Ostium Talent, Dan Cotter acknowledges how challenging the last year has been but believes the future is extremely bright for the region. Cotter said:

“I know the last 12 months have been tough for a lot of people and I feel very fortunate that strategic communications has, so far, proved very resilient. The Middle East is attracting some of the very best talents in communications and I can only see that continuing and growing given the dynamic nature of the region”.

Ostium Talent will support clients across a broad range of communication disciplines including corporate communications, reputation management, financial services, and crisis communications.

It will offer a flexible recruitment solution to its clients and according to its managing director trust and a very personal approach will be at the heart of everything they do.
