Sri Lanka-based recruitment and outsourcing firm Job Factory, announced at a press conference that it is planning to launch into the overseas market as JobFactory-Global, reports prlog.org. JobFactory has already,been successful in obtaining an overseas recruitment license from the Foreign Employment Bureau in Sri Lanka.
Madhushan Raigamage, Chief Executive Officer of Job Factory (Private) Limited, said: “We are very positive about our move for foreign employment business. We do not have any idea of supplying unskilled labour to foreign clients, as we are very strong on the local market for skilled talents; especially in Information Technology, Accounting/Finance and also HR. Sri Lanka is popular for Accounting/Finance talents and also we know the fact that there is an excess supply of Accounts/Finance and also HR professionals. In these circumstances JobFactory-Global is geared to get in to overseas market with a highly positive mind set.”
“JobFactory-Global will mainly focus on Qatar, which is one of the fastest growing economies in the Middle East region. Few companies operating in Qatar have invited us to get in to their territory too. We are considering that request positively. Opening up a branch in Qatar is costly, but we may consider opening a virtual branch initially in Qatar, in fact we have reserved the web domain for Qatar already,” Mr Raigamage said.
Also speaking at the press conference, Ms Nirmala Dassanayaka, Head of Recruitment, said: “We understand the sensitivity of the process and therefore we don’t want to compromise our quality, which we have maintained in the local market. We have a fair number of top level contacts in Middle East companies. Undoubtedly JobFactory is capable of getting established in the overseas market without a much effort.”
She continued: “As a principle, we do not charge a single rupee from the candidate. That we maintain in the local market too. JobFactory will be partnering only with the clients who are in line with our values and norms.”
