J4B in key recruitment milestone
Manama, July 7, 2013
Online employment and careers service Jobs4Bahrainis.com has marked a key milestone as 147 leading companies are now enrolled on the site following a strategic partnership with the Kingdom’s Tamkeen Labour Fund signed in November last year.
Jobs4Bahrainis.com, an initiative of Gulf Connexions, the Kingdom’s leading recruitment company, recently placed two chemical engineers with Haldor Topsoe, a global supplier of catalysts and technologies headquartered in Denmark, which is currently expanding its operations in Bahrain.
Thomas Vadum la Cour, the general manager, Haldor Topsoe Bahrain said as an international market leader in the field, Haldor Topsoe needs the very best people to help the company achieve the highest standards of delivery at the local level.
"With a pool of skilled Bahraini talent available to select from, Jobs4Bahrainis.com has proved to be a valuable ‘go-to’ resource to meet our engineering skills needs, while helping us fulfill our commitment to recruiting and developing top Bahraini talent as we expand our local capabilities," he stated.
Speaking of the latest recruitments - which bring to approximately 20 the number of candidates sourced for leading companies in the Kingdom in recent months, Jubran Abdulrahman, the managing director, Jobs4Bahrainis.com, said: "Chemical engineering is a highly specialised field, and our ability to match the exacting skills needs of a global leader such as Haldor Topsoe with available local talent underlines the faith placed in us by renowned international companies and qualified Bahraini job seekers."
"We trust that the two chemical engineers recently recruited by Haldor Topsoe will play a key role for the company as it expands its operations in Bahrain," said Abdulrahman.
"The latest successes for the portal and its mission to help qualified Bahrainis find employment are underpinned by the partnership with Tamkeen, by which Tamkeen meets 100 per cent of the costs previously charged to companies and job seekers to use the portal," he added.
Many leading employers in Bahrain have since taken advantage of the service, posting jobs vacancies and viewing the filtered CVs of some of the 14,500 job seekers currently signed up to the site free of charge.
Fully aligned with the Kingdom’s Economic Vision 2030, Jobs4Bahrainis.com is designed to promote Bahrainis as the employees of choice by showcasing a community of available talent and skills.
