Increasing opportunities for Saudi women

A female-only recruitment company is transforming the lives of ambitious women across Saudi Arabia.

The Bab Rizq Jameel Female Recruitment Company was launched at Hussein Jameel House in Jeddah in September 2015, to empower and enable more women in Saudi Arabia to enter the workforce.

It follows the success of Bab Rizq Jameel, Community Jameel’s job creation program, which has created more than 100,000 jobs for women across 96 Saudi Arabian cities and towns since 2007.

Commenting on the success of the program, Rola Basamad, Senior General Manager of Bab Rizq Jameel Female Recruitment Company, said: “Across Saudi Arabia, we have pursued a strategy of cultivating a diverse range of offerings while developing support systems and training programs. This will ensure that job seekers are equipped with the skills they need to succeed in today’s workplace.”

Bab Rizq Jameel has already achieved encouraging results across all five regions of Saudi Arabia, and now looks set to deliver a diverse range of job opportunities across its network of almost 1,400 companies in the private sector.

“Our nationwide network of recruitment and training centers have helped an increasing number of women fulfill their potential by providing them with job opportunities which complement their skill-sets and suit their individual lifestyles,” said Ms Basamad.
