Weam Kamel

Principal Consultant

  • Location Dubai

Fluent in both Arabic and English, Weam specializes in recruiting for mid to senior-level positions in the areas of corporate finance such as restructuring, strategy, mergers and acquisitions and valuations as well as risk management, business continuity and internal audit. She also has as strong track record in sourcing candidates for traditional finance and accounting roles.

“I never wanted to be glued to a desk. I thrive when things are interactive and engaging, and that’s recruitment. I probably spend more time in other people’s offices than ours, continuously meeting candidates and clients, building rapport and hosting events like ‘Women in Business’.

“What makes Alchemy special is the way we value our candidates. We’re not transactional recruiters. There’s a culture of bringing everyone close together rather than creating competition.”

Approach to recruitment: "Recruitment is an emotional roller coaster. You need a positive mindset, and the conviction there’s always a solution – especially if you think creatively."

Dubai highlights: "I’ve lived and worked in many countries, but the UAE is home. As a female of Arabic background, I value the chance it’s given me to break ‘traditional’ paths and create my own success."

It was a true pleasure working with Weam. If I was to describe the experience in one Word, it would be “Refreshing”.  She was always on point, knew the opportunities well, was there to bounce off ideas and concerns. Communication was impeccable, never once did I feel I was left in the dark. One of the best recruitment experiences I have ever had. A true Alchemist!”
