1,000 Saudi men & women apply to become Careem captains

App-based ride-hailing service Careem has concluded the Careem Career Fair in Dammam in partnership with the Human Resources Development Fund (Hadaf) and the National Labor Gateway (Taqat). The exhibition was attended by 1,000 Saudi men and women from the Eastern Province.

General Manager of the Eastern Province at Careem Iyad Al-Dalooj said: “We are proud of the large turnout at the Careem Career Fair in Dammam as it reflects users’ trust in the company in the Kingdom in general and the Eastern Province in particular. A total of 1,000 Saudi men and women from the Eastern Province have applied to become Careem captains, and perhaps the launch of the iOS version of the Careem Captain App has boosted the turnout of applicants through the easy process of applying for available positions. We at Careem are delighted to welcome these applicants to the team, where they will become full-time captains with a guaranteed monthly income and a multitude of additional benefits.”

The Careem Career Fair in Dammam is the second of its kind for the company; the first conference, which was held earlier this month in Jeddah, welcomed more than 8,000 Saudi applicants seeking to join Careem as full-time captains. Applicants started their jobs immediately after applying.

New employees who meet the company’s criteria will receive a guaranteed monthly income of SR7,500 ($2,000) with multiple options as well as additional benefits, including health insurance and optional social insurance. Careem also offers several options that enable Saudi youth to obtain a suitable car with facilitated financing provided they are at least 20 years old, have an official driving license and do not own a car. 

Careem will organize a career fair in Riyadh in the coming period as part of its efforts to attract Saudi talents and help create job opportunities for Saudi youth.

CMRC admits first patients to new Saudi clinic

Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center (CMRC), a top post-acute rehabilitation and long-term care facility in the UAE, has admitted 15 patients to its first medical facility in Saudi Arabia. 

CMRC’s new 60-bed clinic, located between Dhahran and Alkhobar, aims to help patients requiring post-acute care and rehabilitation services to make large improvements in their quality of life through multidisciplinary rehabilitative therapies including physiatry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and multi-sensory room sessions. 

The facility is staffed by multiple clinical experts including GPs, internal medicine consultants, pediatricians, ICU intensivists, rehabilitation consultants, psychologists and therapists, and will service patients across the eastern region of Saudi Arabia. 

It follows the same clinical procedures and protocols successfully implemented in facilities in the UAE, similarly benefiting from the center’s international partnership with the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and accreditations from Joint Commission International, CARF and Planetree.

CMRC, a portfolio company of health care specialist investor TVM Capital Healthcare, also operates facilities in Abu Dhabi and Al-Ain in the UAE.

CMRC Group CEO Dr. Howard S. Podolsky said: “We expand into countries where there is notable demand for post-acute care and rehabilitation services. Like many countries around the world, Saudi Arabia is experiencing a rise in the incidence of non-communicable diseases, birth defects, and life-threatening injuries. Our new facility brings our world-class medical treatment, care, and rehabilitation therapies to the Kingdom through a truly patient-centric approach.”

He added: “We look forward to helping families in the region improve their quality of life and using our international expertise and specialized workforce to support the government of Saudi Arabia’s focus on health care development, as part of Saudi Vision 2030.”

Dr. Helmut Schuehsler, CEO of TVM Capital Healthcare and board member of CMRC, said: “We believe that private equity investment should be a force for good, and that by working in health care, we have a real opportunity to make a difference to patients’ lives. Therefore, we conceptualized and invested in CMRC in the UAE to cater to those in need of post-acute care and an elevated level of rehabilitation. CMRC grew to be the leading post-acute care and rehabilitation provider in the UAE. We are very happy to bring the offer to the people of Saudi Arabia now.”

CMRC offers both inpatient services at its medical centers and outpatient therapy, where patients follow a rehabilitation program after discharge. The company employs more than 500 staff members across all facilities.
