Employment process ‘simpler’ with new online recruitment service

Jobdirection.com has been launched with a view to offering a more comprehensive recruitment service to both employers and would-be employees.

Gulf International Employment Services (GIES) has launched a new online recruitment service (www. jobdirection.com), aiming to supply prospective employees to UAE and Gulf companies from a range of professional job sectors, including business, healthcare, media and the service industry. "Extensive research conducted by us prior to launching this portal showed that there was a great need for an inexpensive and easy-to-use online recruitment service that will benefit both employees and job-seekers,” said Yousef Al Ghareeb, managing director of Gulf International Employment Services.“It will help employers reach the most qualified candidates easily and speedily, give maximum exposure to the suitable candidates and implement services efficiently to the satisfaction of all parties involved in the process,” added Al Ghareeb.Employers will be given the opportunity to post their job vacancies for free on the internet, while a team of recruitment specialists will carefully orientate job seekers to the most suitable position in their profession. Online recruitment websites are an increasing phenomenon in the Gulf, and it remains to be seen if GIES will be able to offer a more comprehensive service and job direction than some of its more established regional competitors.
