Top Dubai Recruitment Agencies in Kenya

Many organisations today use recruitment agencies to fill job openings. This is happening because of convenience and speed.

On the same scale, many Kenyans seek employment opportunities abroad because opportunities in the country are scarce.

What’s more, a job searcher should be wary of ‘briefcase’ Kenyan job agencies that contravene labour laws and operate without any certification.

Such rogue agencies are known to swindle desperate job seekers or dispatch them to cruel employers abroad.

However, there are some international recruitment agencies that have built a solid reputation for results for both the job seeker and the employer.
