fintech middle east

The Middle Eastern fintech market is ever-evolving; from bank technology and online payments, to securities and capital markets. Highly innovative start-ups in locations such as Dubai and Amman have already caused market disruption to traditional organisations, whereas continued consolidation by larger, well-established banks has pushed demand for IT professionals to new heights. Likewise, increasing regulatory and compliance oversight on behalf of local governments, is influencing the type of leaders needed in this newly emerging sector.

Constant industry changes require innovative professionals who can drive development, reduce risk, and accelerate readiness, in order to stay ahead in the market. Whether you’re hiring for a public, private, or semi-government company, Randstad MENA has a team of dedicated resourcing consultants who have extensive experience finding the talent that your business needs.
