UAE-based property portals Bayut and dubizzle have embarked on a landmark recruitment drive, offering over 200 career opportunities across its business units in the country to grow their talent pool and continue to build innovative, industry-defining products and solutions.
This strategic expansion in the UAE comes as part of the wider goals of Bayut & dubizzle’s parent company, Emerging Markets Property Group (EMPG) to attract the best professionals from the region.
In addition to the vacancies in the UAE, EMPG has announced 200 additional opportunities in other key markets including Pakistan, Lebanon and Egypt, it stated.
Suzanne Gandy, the HR director for Bayut & dubizzle, said the group was focussed on promoting the national economy, developing domestic competencies and providing a platform to nurture local talent at grassroot levels.
"We are a tech and data-driven organisation that understands the importance of building the local talent pool and developing competencies for new and emerging technologies. Our focus remains to provide an excellent platform for growth with a work culture that is inclusive, supportive and gives unmatched opportunity for development," stated Gandy.
"As an equal opportunities employer, we are also looking forward to continuing our legacy of having an almost equal ratio of male and female employees, she added.
Haider Ali Khan, the CEO of Bayut & dubizzle, and head of EMPG Mena said: "We have always remained highly committed to nurturing local talents across the region and providing them the opportunity to be a part of a truly data driven, innovative company."
"We are keen to attract and retain talented professionals who can help us to create competitive advantages and deliver sustainable value and contribute towards shaping the future of the technology sector in the region. As a UAE-based unicorn, EMPG is defining new paths and is proud to be playing a role in cultivating a new generation of experts capable of taking on leadership roles while keeping up with the best in the world," he added.
Earlier this year, EMPG and OLX Group, owners of homegrown technology success stories - along with Bayut & dubizzle - had announced a merger of their Mena and some South Asian assets to form an AED3.6 billion ($1 billion) Dubai-based unicorn company.
