I write this having just started my post as a consultant in Abu Dhabi having relocated from the UK. This would not have been possible without the hard-work, professionalism and patience of Randa Gumaa from Regent Personnel.  Randa has been instrumental in initiating and facilitating this life changing move for me and for that I will forever be indebted.

Dr Amani Hassan – Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist

I have a pleasure to have known Simon and his company, Regent personnel,  now for almost 5 years. I approached him (and his company through a word of mouth) because I wanted a change in my direction of life and work. Once I spoke to him, I knew instantly that all my problems have been put in one basket and they are going to take care of them and they did. The result was that I have ended up with the best job ever.

Dr Samina M Dornan – IVF & Urogynae

I made contact with Regent Personnel over two years ago seeking work overseas. They sourced and recommended hand-picked posts for me based on my preferences and qualifications. I am about to emigrate to take up an exciting post in the Middle East and wanted to express my gratitude to Simon and Michelle for, mostly, putting up with all my demands and queries.

Dr Shwan Rashid – Accident and Emergency Consultant

Randa has been superb in facilitating my appointment to the position of Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon to Al Ain Hospital, Abu Dhabi, UAE, starting in position on 14 January 2018.

For 16 years I had worked in the NHS as a Consultant and, naturally, such a big move for me and my family appeared daunting. Randa has smoothed the way from the beginning and has been reassuring all the time.

She has answered all my varied and many questions precisely and honestly using her previous great experience in securing positions in the Middle East. This helped me enormously in my decision making to make the change and move.

Mr Malcolm D Podmore – Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon

Thank you Michelle. Thank you for yours and Simon’s support and guidance throughout this recruitment process.

You have supported and guided me excellently throughout my recruitment process with Sidra Medicine in Qatar from pre-application stage, application, interviews, post interview follow ups, processing professional and personal documents to licensing and credentialing to issue of work visa. I felt that there was always someone to ask and verify, as it is often very difficult to get such support directly from the recruiting hospital or institute.

I have no hesitation to recommend Regent Personnel for doctors looking for sabbatical or permanent overseas work placements in the Middle East.

Thanking you and with Best wishes,

(Abdul R Moodambail)

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your dedicated team for all your wonderful help and support with our job applications over the last year. I don’t think we could have sorted it all out ourselves especially with the many hurdles we have had to overcome along the way !!

I will certainly recommend your company to any doctors wishing to apply for jobs abroad!

Dr Sarah El-hadi – Paediatrician

Due to family reasons, I had looked to work in the Gulf region. I had some poor experiences during my search, so when I was contacted by Regent Personnel, I was not confident they could deliver.

However I can now say that Regent could not be more professional, reliable and supportive throughout every step of the process – from initial visits, to documentation and relocation.

Even after starting the job, Regent have been in contact. I could not praise them more highly and I thoroughly recommend them for anybody looking to work abroad.

Dr Samira Anwar – Consultant Paediatric Ophthalmologist

When I decided to try to get a job in the UAE, I sent emails to several agencies handling medical jobs. From the start, Regent responded promptly. there were 2 job possibilities in Dubai, one in Qatar.

I spoke to other agencies who were not aware of job vacancies in the UAE. Simon and his staff were extremely helpful, willing to answer any questions, about moving to UAE, and about the hospitals also. They were knowledgeable and professional.

I would highly recommend Regent Personnel to anyone wanting to work in a foreign country. I am now happily settled and in a great job in the UAE. Would not have been possible without their help.

Dr S Ahmad – Consultant Radiologist

We made the decision to move to UAE as a family and it has proved to be a fabulous one. Moving overseas for work and bringing your family is a major event and Randa was instrumental in making the process smooth. It can be very fraught dealing with another health care system and the processes can seem convoluted and laborious but at every event Randa was there to help and reassure me that all was in order and to explain the processes.

Fraser Harban – Consultant Paediatric Anaesthetist

It gives me great pleasure to record my thanks for making the process of taking a job abroad as easy as you have done. From the first personal contact you have provided clear information at all times including any time of day, no matter how late. When there have been matters of confusion or a need for clarity of information you were always available to handle those matters and smooth the process. There are a considerable number of steps in securing a job overseas and you have spelled those out and made the whole journey as smooth as possible and I am very grateful. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any other doctors wishing to relocate abroad.

Dr Michael Uglow – Consultant Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dear Randa,

It’s a great pleasure to work with you since the beginning of our relationship. You are of great support always whenever I needed help. You answered all my questions with a smile and put me in right direction. I found you very thorough and knowledgeable with regards to the information I needed.

I am pleased to have come across your agency. I highly recommend you for recruiting a professional to any organization.

Dr. Suneel Pooboni – Consultant Paediatric Critical Care

I would like to express my deep thanks to you for all the support and help I got from you preparing for my big move to King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Riyadh.
You were very supportive in every step of the process and you were very approachable any time and no matter how silly my queries were.
I can remember your supportive attitude when the question was raised about an exam and the amounts of hard work you put to verify this point for me and I appreciate how hard that might have been for you.

I am deeply grateful to your kindness and honest advices at times, putting my own benefit before yours which speaks volumes about your high professional standards.

Please accept my regards and best wishes.

Dr. Nahla Awad – Consultant Anaesthetist

I have been working in Abu Dhabi now for just over 6 weeks and I must admit that it is exactly as I had hoped it would be. My colleagues here are very supportive and the work environment is impressively innovative. As you had previously indicated, life in Abu Dhabi is fantastic. So much to do here and so much time to do it. Just the perfect combination.. Every weekend is like a mini vacation. And this is just the beginning. There is so much to look forward to. I am very grateful to you and Michelle for your encouragement, support and reassurance with my application for this post. It certainly was the right choice at the right time.

Dr. Balaji Krishnamurthy – Consultant Paediatric Gastroenterologist

Everyone at your agency has been friendly helpful and professional throughout. This has included your arranging my interview in Dubai. I also appreciated your call the day before I left for Dubai with your best wishes and advice. The work at the hospital has so far been clinically straight forward, and all the staff that I have worked with have been pleasant, competent and helpful.

Dr. A Burnham – Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist

I contacted Regent Personnel a few months ago to explore the option of working overseas as a Consultant Physician. I have been extremely fortunate to deal with Randa Gumaa who is one of the directors. She was very easy to talk to and was able to explain in detail the whole process of applying for a job overseas. In a matter of a few weeks she was able to source me a job in the Gulf.

I found her to be approachable and well experienced. She was able to offer me sound unbiased advice and as a result I was successful in obtaining my desired job. Throughout the process she was efficient, professional and reliable and remained my advocate throughout the whole recruiting process.

Needless to say I highly recommend Randa and Regent Personnel as they have your best interest at Heart

Dr. M Musgrave – Consultant Rheumatologist

Dear Michelle,

I have returned from New Zealand.

I had a wonderful time in a beautiful country with one of the friendliest people.

Professionally, although I am not many years from retirement, I still learned a lot, managed to travel and was looked after very well.

All this would not have been possible without your help and organisation.

Thank you very much.

kind regards

Abhijit Bose

PS: need my next trip.

Dr. Abhijit Bose – Consultant Accident Emergency Medicine

Simon from Regent Personnel was instrumental in helping me find the right position when I started considering moving from the UK to the UAE. He put forward potential jobs for my consideration and talked me through the whole process, helping me to understand the various stages. He put me in touch with the HR department at the hospital who were also extremely helpful and helped arrange a video teleconference interview and then a visit to Dubai to finalise the job offer.

Simon was closely involved  in helping to complete the various administrative formalities and licensing and has been a constant source of sage advice and reassurance. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to any doctor considering moving to the UAE.
