Manama, July 1, 2010
Jobs4Bahrainis.com, the first private sector initiative dedicated exclusively to improving the employment prospects of Bahraini nationals, has proved to be a massive success in the first 24 hours since it went live.
By June 1 (Thursday) the portal, which went live on Wednesday morning, had received a total of 35,372 unique visitors, of which 99 per cent originated from Bahrain.
Jobs4Bahrainis.com is a joint venture between Gulf Connexions, one of the leading recruitment companies in the region and Al Hilal Group, the Kingdom’s leading publishing and marketing organisation.
With a core mission to get Bahrainis into the workforce, Jobs4Bahrainis.com is aligned with the Bahrain government’s Economic Vision 2030 and enjoys support from main partner Gulf Air, Bahrain’s national airline and a major employer of Bahraini nationals.
The portal also received more than 450 new registrations in the 24 hours since launch, from both graduate and professional Bahrainis across various job sectors.
Commenting on the success, Ali Al Daylami, business development manager, Jobs4Bahrainis.com, said: 'The response we have received for this initiative, which has been designed to help Bahrainis maximise their job opportunities, has far exceeded our expectations.'
“We have also received numerous calls from employers enquiring about ways in which they would be able to utilise the portal to source quality Bahraini candidates for a range of job vacancies,” he added.
Jobs4Bahrainis.com is the first service of its type in Bahrain, providing employers with access to Bahraini talent and enabling Bahrainis to search for job opportunities within their specialised or preferred employment sectors.-TradeArabia News Service
