Training will be held in cooperation with the Human Resources Development Fund and the Ministry of Labor and Social Development.

Previously, SGS organized the first recruitment forum in Jeddah, under the “Your Way to the Future” program, held Dec. 24-27, 2017. The program aimed to recruit fresh university graduates of both genders to work in service areas at King Abdul Aziz International Airport terminals.

Omar Najjar, SGS CEO, said that these efforts were part of the company’s support for the Kingdom’s directions to “empower Saudi females to become a productive part of society.”
Al-Bokhari said that the response they received was massive. “We have received over 10,000 applications through our online career portal.”
