Jeddah, February 13, 2010
Saudi-based Construction Products Holding Company (CPC) has signed an agreement with the Human Resources Development Fund, (HDF) Makkah branch, to recruit and train 490 young Saudis in its factories and companies across the Kingdom.
Dr Faysal Alaquil, director of CPC Business Development & Administration Affairs and Hisham Bin Abdurrahman Linjawi, HDF Makkah branch manager signed the agreement on Saturday.
This is the latest in a series of partnerships between CPC and HDF dating back to 2007, said Dr Faysal Alaquil.
“We have been working together with HDF for the last three years, and have trained 2320 young Saudis in our factories and companies across the Kingdom. We are delighted to continue this partnership as part of our community service as well as our commitment to support government initiatives in this regard,” he added.
According to Dr Alaquil, CPC has been very keen, since its inception, to localize its jobs, and to grant the Saudi youths the opportunity to get excellent training from a reputed company, one that is provided in close coordination with the Human Resources Development Fund, which provides substantial support during their training period.
He further pointed out that the new recruitment includes 490 Saudis who will be employed in three subsidiary companies of CPC, namely: Marble and Granite International Company, United Arab Aluminum Company and Premco Precast Concrete Company.
Meanwhile, Linjawi thanked CPC for its support in the recruitment and training of young Saudis as part of a wider government initiative to localize jobs in Saudi, and create a new generation of citizens who are able to participate and contribute meaningfully to the country’s development and growth.
'CPC is one of the pioneer companies to contribute strongly to the concept of training and employing citizens who wish to work in the private sector. Thanks to CPC’s wide and multiple business activities, young Saudis have the capability to familiarize themselves with a variety of industries,' Linjawi added.-TradeArabia News Service
