Recruiters from Saudi Arabia’s technology and IT sector are experiencing greater demand for Saudi nationals, according to a recruitment panel hosted recently in Dubai. This included representatives from large staffing companies such as Michael Page, Robert Half and Korn/Ferry International, local media reports.
The experts on the panel said that Saudi Arabia remained the largest growth market for technology recruitment in the region. Both local and multinational companies report high demand for people educated in the Western part of the world.
