No wedding pictures or birthday cakes: 
 
We are not a communications or self-promotion platform. Nor are we a recruitment agency. So unfortunately what you will not find here are wedding pictures or birthday cakes.  
 
Focused on Nationals:
 
Our core goal is to connect national talent with jobs and companies they love. We do this by helping organizations build online brand equity and experiences by portraying their culture, teams, work environment, benefits, employee experiences,...to help Job Seekers make better long term career decisions.
 
Our platform is focused on 'Careers' and 'Self-Development' exclusively for UAE & GCC Nationals. We do this by:
 
  1. bringing global Career opportunities specifically for the UAE & GCC Nationals on JobsForNationals.com

  2. bringing global Education & Skills Development programs and online courses specifically for the UAE & GCC Nationals on JobsForNationals.com
 
Brief History:
 
Launched in December 2016 after extensive research with both UAE & KSA Nationals, we are the first exclusive online careers platform for UAE National Talent across Seven Emirates
 
Fast forward to today we have also opened our platform to accept GCC Job Seeker registrations.
 
To Employers, our value proposition is based around FRESH JOBS > FRESH CANDIDATES.  By having a Careers marketing platform, Employers can rest assure that every application they receive comes from an active job seeker who is interested in the opportunity. Job postings are NOT auto populated for the sake of volumes. Our typical job application ration is 97% from Nationals. See Employer testimonials here for reference.
