Who we are

About SOS

SOS was established in 1975 when the discovery of oil propelled the Middle East to the center stage of the world. We are proud to be involved in the region’s exhilarating and continuous journey towards success. We were the first in establishing professional recruitment services in the UAE and, from our exciting beginnings with the oil industry; we expanded our services to various other key industries over the long and fruitful journey.

SOS has specialized in providing turnkey HR solutions to multinationals, large business houses, and the local governments that we serve. As a leading provider of HR related services to the Middle East region, SOS has remained a recruitment, professional development training, and outsourcing pioneer to job applicants, employees and distinguished clients alike.

Our comprehensive network of associates and partners extends across the GCC and global markets. With well over 44 years’ of industry experience, SOS currently operates from offices located in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
