Architecture & Design


AE academy.

AE Recruitment is the first recruitment consultancy in Middle East to work with job seekers to improve their chances of being selected in the job search selection process. 

Unfortunately, due to technological advancements, lack of understanding and saturation in the marketplace job seekers are finding it every more increasingly difficult to find not just a job, but a meaningful, rewarding career. AE Recruitment has been an instrumental part of building top 5 architectural businesses and are intrinsically intwined with global, visionary leaders… in short “we know what they look for”!

When it comes to a job search hiring managers look for a lot more than just words on a page that has been spell checked, especially in the design industry! Hiring managers are seeking new hires to demonstrate their value and creative skills throughout their CVs, portfolios, LinkedIn profiles and supporting presentations. Through personal branding the job seeker automatically elevates their own self-value, self-worth and their chances of being selected for an interview. Demonstrating a strong understanding of what a job seeker has to offer also benefits job and salary negotiations further down the hiring process. 

Everyone deserves the right of true job satisfaction and that is the reason why we have put together courses so that you, the job seeker, can gain access into the inner workings of what hiring managers really want! In 2019 job seekers approached us, desperately eager to learn about what they needed to do to secure their dream job. We listened; we responded; and now we  have created everything you need information including CV templates, quizzes, guidance and inspiration through to a mentorship programme with a more proactive, actionable and constructive approach to your search.

The Platinum package has everything the Gold support package does with the added benefit of working with a coach on a 1-2-1 basis plus all the added benefits below…

The job search race is fiercely competitive which is far more difficult when you are not getting the time or feedback from hiring managers in order to better your chances. By the time you are seeking answers from a business you’ve usually hit a dead end with that company. 

Securing a job is more about how you feel about yourself, the skills you offer and how you effectively articulate that to your audience.  We cut to the case from the beginning and set you up for success from the outset with a full A-Z guide like in the Gold package BUT you also have your mentor to give you all the support, encouragement and guidance to keep you positive and on track. 

We will assess your job applications with you so you gain insights as to why you may not have been chosen, but more to the point, how you can improve moving forward. A non bias opinion is a priceless exercise that builds confidence and self esteem. 

Prepare yourself for your interview before the big day with mock interviews that shed valuable insights into the hiring manager’s perspective of your body language, demeanour and articulation of your experience.

Securing the right job for you is all about how you position yourself correctly for the job you are aiming for. You do this by articulating your experience and value in relation to the position you want. The sweet spot for success is when all your materials convincingly demonstrate elements of your unquestionable value.

In a world where it’s becoming increasingly difficult to be heard the skills we teach you will benefit you in your job search, salary negotiations and increase inbound opportunities for you.

Recruiters have financial monetary targets to hit every month to stay employed so whether you are looking for a job or looking to build a business we can tailor your goals to suit your needs and aspirations.
