Tell us a little about yourself: “I was born and brought up in Dubai, no doubt a wonderful place to live. I moved to UK in 2011. I have done Masters in Human Resource Management. I am also a qualified PHR – Professional in Human Resource with more than 6 years of experience in managing full spectrum of HR functions.
