Making a difference in the Middle East
Cochlear opened its new regional office in Dubai in January 2014. The office is located in the Dubai Healthcare City, a special district dedicated to high-quality, patient-centered healthcare.
Cochlear has been active in the greater Middle East region for over 25 years. Our regional office in Dubai is complementary to our existing business models to create synergies and long-term support to our local distributors and recipients in all Middle East countries in order to gain a stronger regional presence and to generate further market growth. Our Dubai based staff thereby has the challenge and opportunity to develop our business with our partners in some of the most exiting markets.
Within the region, our Cochlear team, being both office and field based, currently focuses on sales, customer/technical services and marketing and we are planning to further expand our activities and to grow the team.
These markets and the dynamic industry for implantable hearing implants guarantee a continuously changing environment, versatile duties and responsibilities and thereby give each employee the possibility to shape their own professional development.
