Rupawala added, “Bahrainis are the true assets of companies operating in the Kingdom as Lulu Hypermarket has found through experience – they are dedicated, educated and have excellent people skills.”

Speaking on the occasion, Minister,  Jameel Al Humaidan praised the Lulu Group for the initiative and said, “New entrants bring fresh ideas and energy to the workplace and investing in them is a way to secure progress for the future. 

He added: “The initiative of launching a recruitment exhibition by Lulu Hypermarket in collaboration with a number of companies for the unemployed Bahrainis, is a social partnership between the Ministry of Labour and various establishments in Bahrain, which confirms that the retail project is promising.”
