Gemma Gibson

Talent Acquisition Director

"The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people" (Theodore Roosevelt). This statement along with trust has been the foundations of my success throughout my career.

My name is Gemma, and I am the Co-Founder and Talent Acquisition Director for Leith Associates. I was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland. Since graduating from Edinburgh Napier University in 2005 with a BA (Hons) in Business Management, I travelled and worked in various countries including Spain and Australia before moving to Dubai, UAE in 2012. I feel very blessed to be happily married and have three beautiful boys who are my World and my greatest achievements to date.

Over the last decade, since joining the recruitment World, I have had a complete holistic view of recruitment. I have worked; agency side in both the UK and across the GCC doing IT and Banking Technology; internal for a major conglomerate in Dubai; and for a leading RPO company where I was contracted into Mastercard to handle the recruitment for the Innovation Labs then Advisory business for the MEA region. It was meant to a 3-month contract. I stayed 18 months!

Then COVID hit, my contract was cancelled, and I completely reevaluated what was important to me - doing a job I love but, on my terms, and balancing that with home life. It was then that I decided to start my own business.

Leith Associates is a boutique recruitment company which we set up in early 2021 to disrupt the real estate and property development sectors within the UAE. We have gone from strength to strength and are now branching out into new markets and territories which is really exciting! Going back to my routes in IT, we are going to be focusing on Technology and Digital across the GCC & UK.

After earning my master’s degree in HR & Finance from India, I entered the world of Recruitment out of my service-oriented mindset and that led to my first job as an Executive - Talent Sourcing back in New Delhi, India in 2011.

In Dubai, I started my international career in 2014 with an International Executive search firm and then it kept moving and I am carrying over 8 plus years of experience in Recruitment where I have worked from junior to C-suite level jobs diversified in myriad of verticals which includes IT, Non-IT, IT Sales, IT Infrastructure, Oil & Gas, Healthcare, Finance, Marketing, Management, Real Estate, etc.

Learning something new (experience or skills) through interacting with different people and job orders on a daily basis make me love my job the most.

I am a Mum of a five-year-old Angel and outside my work I love exploring new places, travelling, spending time in nature, practicing yoga, swimming, reading, and writing my small personal blogs.
