In 2006 McCall established its International division supplying recruitment personnel initially to the growing Middle Eastern markets but as time progressed the coverage expanded to a wider geographic territory with placements successfully transacted in Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, Switzerland and the USA as well as a continued commitment to its foundation markets in the MEA region with a focus on Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Qatar.
Initially McCall specialised in placing home grown UK talent who wanted to relocate their skills abroad, now McCall’s International candidates are as far flung as its clients with candidates coming out of many locations to include Australia, Japan, Europe, Hong Kong & South Africa as well as the UK which always proves to be the most popular ground to find skilled recruitment talent.
Professional services recruitment is the main focus for McCall international across all industry verticals to include Accountancy, Banking & Finance, Construction, Engineering, IT & Financial Technology, Telco, Legal, HR, Sales & Marketing, Supply Chain / FMCG, Pharmaceutical & Healthcare and Search practices. Working with high standards and strong values and confidentiality assured, McCall International places candidates at all levels from Researcher & Consultant through to Country Managers, Senior Director & board level personnel.
"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."

"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.

"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."
"Julie has been tremendously professional in the recruitment and selection process. reliable, approachable and direct. But also transparent and candid. I felt like I could always contact her in relation to any question, which is in fact an essential element in being approached and later on "being in" the process. Julie is very knowledgeable and came across (to all the stakeholders) as very competent and to the point. Besides, Julie has a good sense of humour which is very important in this profession. I highly recommend Julie (and her excellent support at McCall) to both candidates and clients looking for a "perfect match"."
Richard Weetch - Managing Partner
"Look no further you have found the Recruitment firm for you, I honestly don't think there is any need to work with another agency as long as McCall is around. The service I experienced from McCall is nothing like I have experienced before, truly one of a kind! I encourage everyone to find out for themselves and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
From the very moment I enquired on McCall's services Julie did not only come across extremely professional but most importantly pro active in her approach. Julie did not let a moment spare and identified key factors which were important to me when matching me to an organisation, she took the time to really listen to my career goals and asked excellent questions thus really focusing on personal organisational fit. I was really impressed how McCall works as a team to ensure they cover all grounds for you. I was not only connected to Andrew on her team in order for me to be introduced to a larger client pool, but when I indicated to Julie that Asia Pacific would be of interest to me she connected me with McCall's Singapore office where Rina went through the same process of identifying organisational importance, this truly created an amazing global experience. It was comforting knowing I had great recruiters from opposite ends of the continent working to represent me in the most positive light targeting companies that were in alignment with my career goals. During the whole recruitment process both locations worked as a team to keep me proactively informed and really made me feel apart of the recruitment process from the very beginning."
Jan Hein Bax - Board Director, USA
A a result in a short time i was presented with options globally, and i am now making the move from Canada to the UK fulfilling my personal goals of international recruitment experience. I can honestly say from my experience, McCall is staffed with the most experienced personnel who have demonstrated to be very skillful in their work and truely have a passion for people.They are all extremly knowledgeable and with an exposure of working with the top corporate companies globally. McCall is nothing less than gold standard in my opinion."
"I would highly recommend McCall if you are looking to relocate. Julie has great knowledge and contacts within the Recruitment arena and makes the transactions smooth and stress free."
