Head of International Operations Appointed
Astutis is pleased to announce the expansion of its operations to key markets in the Middle East.
Working alongside the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a head of international operations has been appointed to forge relationships with organisations in the Arabian Gulf region to deliver efficient, cost effective health and safety training solutions as well as driver training and RoSPA membership.
Martin Eagleton, from Yorkshire, takes on this role which is aimed at furthering the organisation’s reach on a global scale.
Martin, who has spent the past 10 years working in the Middle East and Africa in the telecommunications sector, said:
“Organisations in the Middle East region are working extremely hard to develop cohesive strategies for long-term health and safety training. The fact that Britain’s standards are recognised as among the highest in the world will enable us to help organisations in the Middle East gain more education and awareness in the field of health and safety.”
Adam Cooper, Account Manager at Astutis will be supporting development initiatives in the Middle East. Adam has a wealth of experience in this market delivering bespoke training solutions to corporate clients.
Astutis is committed to delivering a full suite of first class training solutions in the region and has centres conveniently located in Dubai in the UAE as well as Doha, Qatar. Astutis also offers market leading online learning courses which are supported by 18 examination centres worldwide.
Steve Terry, Managing Director of Astutis said:
“We are delighted to have Martin on board. His experience in the Middle East, combined with that of Adam, will be key to developing relationships with our clients and helping them achieve first class training results. We have been achieving consistently high pass rates at NEBOSH Certificate in the UK and are keen to emulate this in the Middle-East.”
The Middle East has become a major business and tourism hub for international companies with new offices, hotels and landmarks opening or under construction, which also places increasing health and safety demands on the region. Qatar is preparing to host the World Cup in 2022, which will involve in-depth plans on construction, infrastructure, road and crowd safety.
In Dubai, tourism projects include the 3.8 million metre squared Falconcity of Wonders development, which will feature replicas of the Taj Mahal, the Pyramids, Hanging Gardens of Babylon and Leaning Tower of Pisa.
