Bahrain jobs portal 'a big hit with employers'
Manama, September 5, 2010
Just weeks after its launch, Jobs4Bahrainis.com, the first private sector initiative dedicated to getting more Bahraini nationals into the workforce, is already receiving excellent reviews.
Jobs4Bahrainis.com is a joint venture between Gulf Connexions, a top Gulf recruitment company, and Al Hilal Group, Bahrain's leading publishing and marketing organisation.
Companies from a diverse range of business sectors have recruited Bahraini talent via the portal since its launch in June.
Managing director of the Bahrain branch of international educational institute Kumon Claire Gaffney said: 'Kumon Bahrain is committed to recruiting the best Bahraini talent, and we were delighted with the calibre of candidates on Jobs4Bahrainis.com.
'We would not have come across the chosen candidates through other forms of recruitment. The speed with which CVs were made available is another reason we would use the service again,' he noted.
Legal & General Gulf managing director Manfred Maske said: 'As Legal & General Gulf is trying to localise its Gulf market presence, a key factor in our success is local resources.'
'Jobs4Bahrainis.com helped us meet recruitment needs and we look forward to hiring more talent from the portal in the future,' he said.
'Jobs4Bahrainis.com enabled us to find our sales and marketing executive within one month of posting our advert on the site, which is straightforward and has easy access and reference,' remarked Chocolate-maker Dutch Delight's director Marjo Rashid.
Commenting on the success, Jobs4Bahrainis.com business development manager Ali Daylami said the positive feedback reinforces their belief that the portal is a remarkable initiative which is meeting the diverse skills requirements of top employers in the kingdom.
'We will continue to enhance our services going forward, expanding our database of candidates and organisations,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
