Naukri.com has entered the Middle East market with its latest online venture - Naukri Gulf. The new job site has been launched to serve both recruiters and jobseekers in the Middle East region. As a special launch offer, recruiters in the Middle East are offered 100 job postings free of cost on the new edition. The first international office of Naukri.com has also come up in Dubai.
The job size market in the Middle East is estimated at $10 million and is one of the most lucrative job markets globally. Consistent and rapid growth in this market has resulted in thousands of new jobs every year.

According to Sanjeev Bikhchandani, CEO, Naukri.com, "Naukri.com has been servicing this market for the last four years and has gained valuable insight into the market, clients and job seekers. The Middle East recruitment market is growing at a fast pace and with its entry into this region Naukri.com will be able to not merely provide manpower from India but also provide them with local talent."
Naukri.com's foray into the Middle East is an attempt to provide the recruiters in this region with the right candidates for the vacancies at their end. At the same time the effort will also be to provide relevant job opportunities to candidates in that region, the company said in a statement.
Naukri Gulf will target jobs in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and other countries of the region.
Added Hitesh Oberoi, COO, Naukri.com, "We hope to replicate our Indian success in the Middle East as well. Given the knowledge of the local recruitment space, we hope to effectively add a different dimension to the online recruitment market in the Middle East."
