According to Mohamed H. Zakaria our Saudi Profile Company has established a training school to train and provide jobs for young Saudis. There are also plans underway to hire Saudi women. Zakaria says we would like to welcome Saudi women employees in the company. We have sent letters to the labor office and asked for help from Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Zakaria said that the Kingdom is changing, and that Saudi women can work in the sector, particularly in office management, reception and accounts. There are also plans to hire people with disabilities, he added. He said the Bugshan family, the owners of the steel company, believes it is their duty as a Saudi company to contribute to the development of the country and the employment of nationals.
Currently 10 percent of the workforce is Saudi but the plan is to turn it into a company with 100 percent Saudi employees, he added. He said Saudis are performing at the company. A Saudi national won the employee of the year award in 2010. He started as a security guard and is now a storekeeper.
