Why should you be my Guru?

As Associate Director at Digital Gurus MENA, I manage the Marketing & Creative team and have a team of experienced gurus covering the following verticals:

– Digital Marketing – SEM, SEO, PPC, Social Media, Content, CRM, Affiliates, Display – Account Management, Client Services, Project Management – Creative, UX & Innovation – Sales & BD – eCommerce, Omnichannel & Digital Transformation – Product Management & Agile Coaching

My team have experience attracting local and international talent to the region and can advise on everything from the visa process, areas to live and cost of living.

I also have experience working onsite at the leading tech enabler in the region to scale their product teams and launching our Digital MENA networking events.

What’s your background?

I’ve got over 8 years’ recruitment experience within the eCommerce and digital industry. I’ve been based in Dubai for over 3 years; working across the Middle East market and building up the team and presence of Digital Gurus in MENA.

My background is primarily working with Privately Owned & Venture Capital backed businesses to attract them the best ecommerce & digital talent to fuel their growth. This includes supporting them through growth, IPO’s, acquisition, restructure and transformation.

Why did you join Digital Gurus?

I was actively looking to relocate to Dubai but was adamant that I wanted to continue recruiting for the digital industry as this is my passion and where I felt I could add most value to the region. There wasn’t anyone in the region solely doing digital recruitment and then finally I heard that Digital Gurus were opening up an office in Dubai and the timing was perfect! I’d heard great things about Digital Gurus and their niche expertise and culture! I haven’t been disappointed and have now been with the business for over 3 years! We encourage autonomy and ownership and offer a great team environment #oneteamonedream

It’s been amazing to see us evolve and really have an impact on the region and I’m excited to see what we can do in the next few years : )

Having Digital Gurus as a strong supporting partner/agency certainly helped in shaping Alshaya’s eCommerce teams. With Alshaya launching their new websites e.g Mothercare, H&M and many more to come, Dani and the team have been a major asset to the business they have provided strong profiles and successfully placed suitable candidates in Alshaya. Digital Gurus has an understanding of the market requirements. Not only does they have great partner management skills, but also the ability to manage clients within the time frame provided. I would strongly recommend working with them.
