A PASSIONATE CULTURE
WE ARE BUILDING AN ORGANISATION THAT IS INSIGHTFUL, COMMITTED AND DYNAMIC BY INSPIRING, SUPPORTING AND ENGAGING WITH COLLEAGUES TO DELIVER TANGIBLE BUSINESS BENEFITS TO OUR CLIENTS.
We are passionate about our clients’ business and pride ourselves on the fact that we identify issues and challenges that others don’t. For this reason, we look for people who are bright and inquisitive, enjoy a challenge and can act on their own initiative.
Our team is like no other, it is made up of down-to-earth experts who are not only driven by personal results but also by witnessing their clients and colleagues thrive and progress as partners.
We celebrate our successes together as one family with our “work hard, play hard” culture.
VALUES AND CHARACTER
Our high-performance culture is based on our core values of Integrity, Teamwork, Performance, and Learning. Our four keys to success guide our decision-making: engage people, deliver value, be cost efficient and use our resources effectively.
These simple points, which define the character we thrive for as individuals and as an organisation, mean that we continuously do the right thing in the right way for the right reason.
POTENTIAL TO GROW
Our expertise is in Lean Management. We recognise that our success depends entirely on dedicated and talented people. Four Principles is a learning organisation.
We believe in helping you grow. We help you build your skills and capabilities through continuous training, combined with early responsibility and fast career advancement potential. We’re interested in outstanding performance, so your work will stretch and stimulate you.
JOIN US, AND YOU’LL BELONG TO A WIDELY DIVERSE & INCLUSIVE TEAM OF COLLEAGUES WHO’LL SUPPORT AND INSPIRE YOU.
At Four Principles we focus on getting to know you thoroughly, and give you a sense of what it’s like to work together.
This means our interview process takes a bit more time so we can get to know each other.
We aim to complete the full recruitment process, from the initial online application to the final assessment day, within six to eight weeks. There are five stages to pass through before the offer stage.
Collecting diverse feedback from Four Principles team of varying levels of seniority, experiences and perspectives is an important part of how we work. Your hiring team will take the time to meet, and come back to you with a decision.
Step 1 – Submit Online Application
If you are interested in any of our vacancies, you are required to submit a full application online. Check our current vacancies to apply directly.
Step 2 – Complete Online Assessment
Once shortlisted you will receive an email to complete an online assessment aiming to measure multiple skills prior to moving to the next step.
Step 3 – Preliminary Interview | Meet Our Virtual HR
A preliminary interview link will automatically be shared with you after you pass the online assessment. During the virtual interview, your answers will be recorded and shared with our HR team.
Step 4 – Technical Interviews | Meet Our Team
Two different (occasionally three) technical interviews will be arranged where you will get to discuss your background and interests, followed by case studies. It’s an opportunity for you to learn more about the role and we’ll ask some questions about your experience and your interest in Four Principles.
Step 5 – Final Case Round | Meeting Our Partners
During the final round, we will fly you over to Dubai if you are based internationally and you will need to complete a full day assessment, followed by a discussion with our Partners. Here you will have the chance to directly interact with our Partners and get first hand information about our culture and growth plans.
Our culture is focused on adding value; from day one, our consultants are integrated with a mindset where they are expected to contribute, be independent and entrepreneurial; as this is how they best bring value to clients and colleagues.
Diversity with a common goal
At Four Principles you will get exposure to a diverse and multi-cultural team of more than 15 nationalities who all contribute every day to our common purpose: Creating sustainable Lean processes, organisations, products and services, as well as shifting mindsets towards the Kaizen philosophy of continuous improvement.
We have been successful by remaining true to our vision and mission, offering genuine expertise, working to the highest quality and driving real change for our clients. Our success is strongly driven by our team working closely with our clients. We listen first, understand their needs and then implement improvements quickly and practically “hands-on” with client staff on the ground.
Our team learns and grows by working and collaborating together on the ground, on client sites, and by building their capabilities with real and actual challenges. You will have an assigned mentor that will guide you through your Four Principles’ journey, and will conduct formal performance appraisals with you every six months. Career reviews give you the opportunity for track or level promotion, and to gain insights on your areas of development. We pride ourselves with being just when it comes to rewarding performance. We strongly believe in your growth as we know it leads to ours, as a team, and as a company.
Our offer includes a basic salary, a housing or accommodation allowance, and a transportation allowance – all tax-free. Additionally we offer an annual attractive performance-based bonus.
All your allowances are received directly by you and you can choose to spend them as you please.
Benefits & Time off
We offer additional benefits including child education assistance allowance for up to three children if they reside with you here in the UAE. As well as annual round tickets to your home country for you and your family. You will receive 30 working days as paid leave per year, and we ensure you get to use most of them during summers and the new year’s time as we value the importance of family time during festive seasons. These are in addition to the UAE public holidays.
Heath Care & Life Insurance
We provide health insurance for you and your family if they are based in the UAE. Our premium health coverage ensures you are well taken care. It also includes dental and optical coverage which is not that common in the UAE. We offer you life insurance. Life insurance plans depend on your hierarchical seniority and family status.
If you are relocating to the UAE from abroad to join Four Principles, you will receive relocation assistance which includes shipment of personal items, a one-way flight to Dubai, and up to 14 nights hotel-stay covered by us should you need it; and during your first couple of weeks on the job, if you are not assigned on projects, we will give you full flexibility to search for your personal apartment, and make sure you settle well before you kick-start on your project assignment.
Are you looking for an exciting career?
We are expanding our team with like-minded individuals who will help us grow while maintaining the highest standards.
Four Principles is a trusted partner, helping companies define, preserve and develop value with its clients. Whether you’re a seasoned professional looking for new challenges or a graduate keen to begin your career in operations consulting, we offer a range of engineering, technical and business consulting opportunities in a rapidly growing regional organisation.
Unless specified, our consulting recruitment is active for all hierarchy levels. Our recruitment stays active throughout the year and during the recruitment process, we benchmark candidates based on their previous experience and interview performance. Accordingly, for selected candidates, we make a final offer based on where we feel the candidate would fit best within our organization.
