Share

Bab Rizq Jameel Recruitment, part of Community Jameel, has helped more than 18,400 people in Saudi Arabia find employment during the first half of 2017.

In line with Saudi Vision 2030’s objective of increasing the number of Saudi men and women working in the private sector, this significant employment boost is spread across a variety of business sectors in all regions of Saudi Arabia, amounting to 10,027 jobs for women and 8,436 for men.

Geographically, the distribution of the new positions was strongest in the Western Region with a total of 8,085 new jobs, followed by the Central Region (3,760) and the Eastern Region (3,072). The Southern and Northern regions achieved 1,833 and 1,713 respectively.

Bab Rizq Jameel Recruitment helped create 10,170 jobs for men and women – mainly in the sales sector, customer service, and similar roles. The additional focus on helping Saudi women enter the workforce highlights the commitment of both Bab Rizq Jameel Recruitment and Community Jameel to deliver on the Saudi Vision 2030.

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 Labor 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 percent since last year.

“Our streamlined registration system enables applicants to register online without having to visit the branch in person, resulting in even larger catchment of male and female job-seekers across Saudi Arabia, helping more people join the workforce and contribute to local economies across the Kingdom.”

Through initiatives such as Bab Rizq Jameel Recruitment, among many other programs that address education, poverty, arts and culture, and food and water security, Community Jameel continues to work towards building a better world by giving people the power to improve their lives and the lives of those around them.
