"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Global Expat, truly a rare exception in the recruitment business. Dietrich and his team were extremely professional and thorough in their process which resulted in candidates of exceptional quality for our opening property. In a sea of mediocre at best recruitment agencies, Global Expat stands out heads above the rest."
Pierre Henrichs General Manager The Lind Boracay, Philippines
"With great pleasure we recommend Global Expat Recruiting as a recruitment consultant for any luxury hotel company. The Lind Boracay was initially impressed with the enthusiasm, swift communication and level of professionalism when we started working with Global Expat back December 2015. Through Global Expat, we were able to hire two very qualified senior positions, which have been a great contribution to our hotel operation. The quality of the candidates, references provided and communication has always been of high standard and our relationship with the company has been very professional, reliable, and trust worthy. Global Expat consistently demonstrated all of these qualities and more, and we heartily endorse them for any company that needs employees with high standards. We have recently extended our contract for another two years and hope that our partnership will continue to be as excellent as it has started."

"We have been working and using Global Expat Head Hunting Company for the past 2 years with excellence services provided. They are always very punctual, fast and understanding in follow-up our company’s request to search our key positions and keeps our confidentiality high. The open communication and management approach toward our business such as negation on the agreement, standard procedures on selecting candidates are among their strength from many that we could not list on this testimonial. We are more than happy to share our great experiences to others who would like to search some recommendation in regards to Global Expat Head Hunting Company."
"I’ve personally had the pleasure to deal with Dietrich and his team on multiple placements in two different countries, Indonesia and the Maldives. It is without hesitation that I will continue to reach out to this fantastic team for future recruitment required in hotel / resort operations I oversee, wherever I may be in Asia. I’m particularly fond and appreciative at the depth of his talent database and the efficiency in which Global Expat performs searches, drills down suitable candidates for selection, with kind and prompt communication throughout. Quality and speed of service is paramount - Global Expat Recruiting delivers on this front and more. I can rely on utmost due diligence when screening potential candidates and this is yet another point among many why I choose to keep going back. Having worked with Dietrich and the team for over four years, he has my absolute trust, and I have referred Global Expat Recruiting to others. Choose them for your future recruitment needs, you will not be disappointed."

at Karma Royal Group
"The Karma Royal Group has been working with Global Expat Recruitment for four years. During this time Global have supplied us with a number of excellent employees. From the start they took the time to understand the culture, nature and requirements of our company, which meant each and every candidate presented had key attributes to fit in and contribute to the DNA of our brand. Even when it is last minute positions to be filled the staff at Global Expat handle the whole process professionally and with a personal touch."
Regional General Manager
"Global Expat Recruiting has helped me to make my dream come true, to work in Asia. Not only have they been very helpful with my relocation to Indonesia, they have played a huge part in my career path as they have placed me in a total of 3 different roles. Every time Dietrich has demonstrated his professionalism and dedication, continuously updating me of any progress on my recruitment process. Even when I had already started my new job, Dietrich kept on checking in on a regular base to see how everything was going and he personally came to visit me at my new work place on all 3 occasions! Other than as a candidate, I have also had the pleasure to work with Global Expat as a client and have successfully hired several key HODs with their help. Here also the Global Expat team has always been very approachable, friendly, efficient, reliable, results oriented with a passion for excellence and an in-depth market knowledge. Having dealt with several recruitment agencies throughout my career, I can honestly say that Global Expat tops the list, providing the service and customer care many other recruitment agencies claim to do on paper but fail to deliver."
The Seminyak Beach Resort
"During the course of my hospitality career, I have dealt with many recruitment firms, some experiences were a bit arduous. Dealing with Global Expat Recruiting has been a breath of fresh air! I can honestly testify they not only genuinely care about their clients, but also about their candidates. They distinguish themselves through personalized attention and care throughout the recruitment process, fostering strong relationships with client and candidate, creating foundation for a long-term partnership. Global Expat has successfully placed me as a candidate after a lengthy process during which they continuously kept on updating me and providing me with interesting insights, sharing with me constructively the pros and cons about the job. Once in my new role, they kept in regular contact and were always ready with a listening ear when needed. As a client, I have been equally impressed with Global Expat’s services. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they always went the extra mile. They consistently strive to genuinely understand the requirements for a position, enabling them to match employers and candidates successfully. They are a true pleasure to work with and I highly appreciate their professionalism, ethics, commitment, enthusiasm, quick response and efficiency. Last but not least, kudos to their openness to criticism, fair play, sense of urgency and responsibility when something goes wrong. Furthermore, their regular charity events and their recent efforts with the unfortunate nature disasters in Indonesia are exemplary. I can highly recommend Global Expat to any company looking for a 5 star recruiter!"
Royal Ambarrukmo, Yogyakarta
"Over the last five years, I have used Global Expat both to find suitable candidates for positions in the hotels I have managed, and also to find suitable positions for myself on more than one occasion. I have always found Dietrich De Roeck and his team to be highly professional whether as a candidate or as a recruiter. Global Expat adds value to the recruitment process through the research done on candidates prior to their being proposed, but also to the candidates in the care taken and sound advice given before, during and after their placement to ensure all is going smoothly for both employer and candidate. I do highly recommend Global Expat for their recruitment expertise and experience within Asia Pacific."

From the start, they have always been reliable in providing candidates that matched our requirements and culture. I personally appreciate their responsiveness and efficiency and the fact that they understand which candidates fit our unique company culture. Apart from my experience as a client, I have had an equally good experience as a candidate and I am very thankful to Global Expat as they were the one contacting me and placing me in my current role."

"I was using agencies to help looking for a perfect job for me. So far Global Expat gives the best service as job agency which really concern with us as candidates. They are professionals in all the way they handle their candidates. I was pleased to meet them and they seriously take care of their candidates as their assets. As an agency which helps our company to find the best candidates to fulfill our vacant positions, they are also top. They always keep on updating us on the status of their search, even if they have not yet found a candidate. This kind of communication is really professional to maintain client’s trust."

"Maca Villas & Spa has been working with Global Expat Recruiting since the opening in August 2011. All key personal have been successfully installed at Maca Villas & Spa by Global and they are still going strong with our company. Global Expat has always sent us the best candidates with very good background, experience and attitude. We do really appreciate the professional handling and your confidentiality. Myself have been placed by Global Expat Recruiting in this job and therefore I can judge the efficiency of Mr. De Roeck and his team from both sides, as a candidate myself and as a client being the General Manager of Maca Villas & Spa. I do hope our business relationship will grow stronger over the years. In any way I can recommend Global Expat as one of the leading Executive Search agencies in this part of the world."
Marie Helene Moreira
was General Manager
at The Seminyak Beach Resort
"Global Expat as Executive Search company has brilliantly assisted me these last 2 years, non-only as candidate, when I was looking for my position of General Manager, but also after being General Manager in the company they presented to me, to find my own Top Management. I have used their service since then and I can only recommend to all my hospitality colleagues Global Expat. They really have understood my complex requests to search my key positions and fulfill them with success. What has the most impressed me, is the genuine follow-up and approach of the Manager himself before and after the candidates are hired. A true professional who understands the high demand and needs of the luxury hospitality business today in Bali. Being in contact before with some Executive Search companies, I can say that Global Expat makes the difference. I can only recommend Global Expat as Executive Search Company."
AMANUSA (now Hotel Manager at Aman Villas Nusa Dua)
"A life changing experience: “When life hit you with a brick, don’t lose faith” it was the first words that came to my mind when I started looking for a new job; a job that will take me away from the constant headache that created me the previous one… after much search, I came across Dietrich and its company Global Expat, honestly speaking I thought it was going to be like any other HR consultant with high demand and low offer but Dietrich is different, he connects the right companies with the right people, and that’s what makes the difference.. In the people business, quality is often more important that quantity and that is what makes Global Expat stands by its own. The hiring process was really efficient, an initial interview with Dietrich to understand your professional needs, personality, goals… few days later, a first interview with the company takes place, he will indeed follow up before the call to ensure the candidate is ready and once finished, a quick call for candidate’s feedback. As I said, Dietrich is very honest, whether the news is good or bad, he will tell it to you straight away, most HR consultants will evaporate from the planet once the candidate has not been hired but having someone who is honest and straight, it’s a nice touch and highly appreciated. Once you are hired and you are starting to enjoy your new life elsewhere, what I enjoyed the most about Global Expat is the monthly follow up calls about how things are going in the new job, settling in well in your new destination and so on; and that can only be done by someone who cares about people. Since day one until now, I can only say great things about this recruitment agency and thumbs up for a job well done."
"During my recent hospitality management job search, I got in touch with Dietrich De Roeck from Global Expat Recruitment. The company had a good reputation among my expatriate colleagues so I gave it a try. From the beginning on there was a great sense of professionalism paired with personal service. Through Dietrich's organisation I quickly found the perfect position for myself. During the process of getting my working visa Dietrich checked on me regularly to see what progress has been made and even helped out with finding me an alternative visa agent which turned out to be the right choice. In a country where reliable partners are crucial, Dietrich's organization is one of the best you can find."
Alila Villas Soori (now Director of Marketing Communications at Capella Ubud)
"Finding jobs that suit you is the expertise of Global Expat. This company is well known amongst hoteliers as the specialist in recruitment for the worldwide hospitality industry. I have experienced the best “talent care” service in finding my dream job through Global Expat. In October last year, I received Global Expat’s job adv of Marketing Communication Manager for brand new boutique resort in West Bali. It immediately dragged my interest in pursuing the career opportunity, so I read the requirements carefully and right away found an ease start just by dropping my CV to Dietrich’s email box. Days later a meeting has been set up for me at his office in Jalan Dewi Sri. I came and met Elizabeth first, she was very helpful guiding me to fill in some paperwork before I see Dietrich. I went through the most comfortable and informative interview ever. He explains the resort’s profile attractively, listens to my expectations, and throws in some inputs for the best deal. Then they arranged an appointment with the General Manager which followed by a visit to the resort site. Dietrich keeps monitoring the progress, even after I signed up the offer. He called me on my first day working to make sure that I’m happy with everything here. Generally, I found every step has been well taken care of. Now I’m always recommending Global Expat to my colleagues and friends, First Class!!!"

"After completing a contract in Fiji, I received an email from Dietrich at Global Expat enquiring if I would be interested in a DOE position located in Bali, rather curious as to how and why I was contacted I replied to Dietrich who informed me he had heard of me via an ex employee of mine from Laucala Island Fiji and would like to receive my C.V. which in return I forwarded. Later another email came explaining the position on offer in great detail however at the time I was looking to move back into construction rather than hospitality and not in any particular hurry to do so. Over the following few months Dietrich kept in contact. At this time the economic crisis had hit, causing the investors of a resort project I was expecting to commence withdrawal and very few high end projects which were on offer advancing in the immediate future, hence I contacted Dietrich in relation to the position put forward by Global Expat. Dietrich was extremely professional, informing me of the current status of the position and arranged an initial telephone interview with the Director of HR of the resort. Dietrich followed up on the interview and noted my concerns and salary expectations where upon Global Expat negotiated a package where both parties were in agreement. Although the process was drawn out from the resort side, Dietrich followed up all of my concerns and relayed updates pertaining to the status of my application as these occurred. When a contract was issued and the date to relocate fast approaching, Global Expat assisted with recommendations of real-estate agents, car hire and areas appropriate to reside in relation to the resort location and security. Due to the persistence and professionalism of Global Expat I have not only had the fortune of living in Bali and working with arguably the number one International hotel chain and management company, it has allowed myself to complete the final step required to be positioned as a consultant for several 5 star resorts in the areas of project management, defecting, due diligence and utilities conservation. In closing, without hesitation I recommend Global Expat as an employment agent for those seeking employment, especially for expatriates as from my experience they will ensure all your bases are covered."

You and your team helped to make disheartening experience of job seeking into personal and positive one and needless to say, I will recommend to you anyone I know who could benefit from your excellent assistance. Once again a big thank you for your team effort of Global Expat Recruiting, as I believe with trust and honesty, there will be more excitement happen in the future on the recruitment as I will always keep in touch with you and your team as the excellent assistance on my career platform."

"2 years ago I got headhunted by Global Expat while working as Executive Sous Chef in a five star Boutique Resort in Bali, although I wasn’t interested in the job on offer at that time, Dietrich and I kept in touch. Beginning this year I got the job as Corporate Executive Chef overseeing 2 five star Boutique Resorts in Bali through Global Expat. This has been a great step forward in my career and my personal life is now also of a better standard. I can only say that there would be no doubt in my mind to apply and look for a job with the help of Global Expat Recruiting. During my humble career, I have never encountered such a professionalism in interviewing, resourcing and execution. Hope you do the same!"
