Businesses offer 1,200 jobs at KAEC’s Tomouh Job Fair

KING ABDULLAH ECONOMIC CITY, SAUDI ARABIA, June 14, 2016

King Abdullah Economic City’s Tomouh job fair provided graduates of the city’s training and qualification program the opportunity to apply for 1,200 jobs offered by 22 national and international companies.

Named after the Arabic word for ambition, the fair is one of the city’s most significant sustainability initiatives, providing 1,000 young Saudi men and women who live in and around Rabigh the skills and training needed to compete for quality jobs, said a press release.

Fahd Hamidaddin, chief commercial officer of King Abdullah Economic City, said: “KAEC is committed to developing the national talent pool by training and qualifying young Saudis to guarantee the prosperity of our nation and contribute to the national economy. We are closely aligned with the vision of His Royal Highness Prince Khalid Al-Faisal, providing more opportunities for the residents of the towns and villages around KAEC by training and preparing them to compete in the job market or start their own businesses.”

“We are happy to see such an exceptional turnout at the fair. This event not only provides support to the beneficiaries of the Tomouh program, it also helps companies in the region take advantage of the opportunity to hire skilled local talent,” he added.

Visitors of the fair were offered jobs at national and global corporations operating in KAEC, with opportunities in commerce, manufacturing, and services. Even businesses from outside the city rushed to participate, adding even more opportunities and confirming the city’s status as a major engine of development and quality employment for the national workforce. –TradeArabia News Service
