Almost 20,000 Saudi Arabian nationals have been helped into employment by Bab Rizq Jameel Recruitment during the first half of 2017.
Since the start of the year, Bab Rizq Jameel Recruitment, which is part of Community Jameel, has found jobs for 10,027 women and 8,436 men. Its efforts are designed to support Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, which aims to increase the number of Saudis working in the private sector.
Rola Basamad, Senior General Manager of Bab Rizq Jameel Recruitment, said: “Helping people find meaningful employment is our primary function and the very reason for our existence.
“There is a great interaction between private companies, the decisions of the Ministry of Labour and Social Development, and Bab Rizq Jameel’s database of potential applicants. The database includes large numbers of graduates from universities and colleges of technology, with registrations increasing by about 50% since last year.”
More than 8,000 of the new jobs were in Saudi Arabia’s western region, followed by 3,760 roles in the central region and 3,072 positions in the eastern region.
Basamad added: “Our streamlined registration system enables applicants to register online without having to visit the branch in person, resulting in an even larger catchment of male and female job-seekers across Saudi Arabia and helping more people join the workforce and contribute to local economies across the country.”
