About Propel Consult

Propel Consult was established in 2009 in the Kingdom of Bahrain by Jamie Groom and Barry Prost to provide high quality recruitment and management consultancy services to employers in the Middle East. The company’s original focus was on the Construction & Engineering and Oil & Gas sectors. Due to client demand, this has grown to include the professional services disciplines of Banking & Finance, Legal, Technology and Human Resources.
The firm’s origins are rooted in a commitment to face-to-face account management for all its clients throughout the region. Propel has expanded to be the largest consultant within this sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain and has built an impressive track record in the provision of staff for the Vision 2030 Projects in Saudi Arabia.
