Bab Rizq Jameel and Careem partner to provide jobs for Saudi Youth

November 13, 2016

The collaboration reflects the shared interest of both parties, in supporting Saudi citizens and creating more jobs in the transport industry, primarily the private limo sector.

Since its launch in 2003, BRJ has helped provide sustainable jobs, training, and education in Saudi Arabia for its citizens. It has so far secured more than 510,000 jobs through a range of collaborative programs and agreements. Signing up with Careem is a further example of how collaboration can contribute to the creation of job opportunities across different industry sectors.

Abdul Rahman Al Fehaid, Executive Director of Bab Rizq Jameel, Saudi Arabia said, “This cooperation indicates that both parties are aware of the importance of providing jobs in the transportation sector and follows the Transport Ministry’s decision to allow Saudis to transport passengers in their private cars via approved apps such as Careem.”

Careem, which is one of the fastest growing startups in the region, seeks to be the largest provider of jobs for Saudis by 2018.
“By signing the MOU with Bab Rizq Jameel, we seek to enable and encourage Saudi youth by giving them the opportunities that were previously unavailable to them so that they can be empowered,” said Dr. Abdullah Elias, Careem Co-Founder and CEO. “Our mission at Careem is to make people’s lives simpler by providing them with simple transport solutions. This partnership will not only help achieve this but will also help Saudi citizens acquire additional skills through training and captain support programs, adding value to the entire community.”

Bab Rizq Jameel and Careem’s tie-up is closely in line with Saudi Arabia’s ‘Vision 2030’ which aims for a prosperous economy by making the most of the Saudi people’s potentials and adopting the culture of freelance work.
