Before joining Alchemy, Surabhi worked for a leading UAE advisory firm in transaction advisory.

“I’ve lived in Dubai since I was seven and like to think this gives me an intuitive sense of what makes this region tick and what companies and candidates look for here."

“After achieving my CFA, I wanted to leverage my skills by helping others in the sector. This region is an ideal place to do this, as you meet so many different people."

“I also like the way that that diversity is reflected in the team at Alchemy. This is a place that celebrates variety and opportunity, and I honestly think that spirit makes recruiting here special.”

Approach to recruitment: "The key to success is balance. Making sure both candidate and client are happy, and that expectations are being met on both sides."

Dubai highlights: "Beaches, the multicultural environment – and the wide choice of dance and Zumba classes!"
