The jobs on offer ranged from shop clerks and security guards to sales executives and doctors as well as key backroom teams such as mechanics and electricians and merchandisers and sales supervisors.

Participating companies included Unilever, Nestle, Lulu International Exchange, AJM Kooheji Group, Mohammed Fakhroo & Bros., Secure-Me, Al Hilal Hospital, Bin Hindi, Malabar Gold & Diamonds, RedTag, The Nine Training Center, G4S, Jawad Business Group, Jasmi’s, Kewalram, YYT Food Corporation, Coca-Cola, BMMI, Apparel, ISMCO, Eagle Security & Safety and Ahmadi Industries.

Addressing the job-seekers and the participating companies, LuLu Group Director Juzer Rupawala said, “The Job Fair is part of our commitment to the community and powered by the vision of our Managing Director Yusuffali M.A. that the youth of the Kingdom can lead us to a prosperous future.”

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.”

The minister also congratulated LuLu Hypermarket for over 35% of Bahrainisation levels in its Bahrain operation.

Twenty LuLu staff who have served for 10 years were also honoured at the inauguration by the Minister for their service.
