McDonald's Sponsors the First Virtual Employment Forum "Mihan" to Support the Saudi Youth and Saudization of jobs
Riyadh International Catering Corporation, the owner of the McDonald's franchise in the Central, Eastern and Northern regions of KSA, sponsored and participated in the first virtual employment forum for restaurants and cafes "Mihan" by providing more than 300 new job opportunities, including: branch managers within "Tomoh Program", managers under training, service crew, delivery crew, and baristas.
By sponsoring this forum, McDonald’s seeks to attract ambitious Saudi youth to join the distinctive programs offered, like the “Tomoh Program” which signs the employee up for 18 months of intensive training, to develop his management skills, specifically designed for fresh graduates and those who are about to graduate, to help them improve their English language and their professional communication skills to learn how to deal with others, which in return qualifies them to become managers or any other equivalent position capable of running a medium-sized enterprise.
Along with participating in this forum, McDonald’s has launched a new “Part time” program, which allows the applicants to choose specific hours, within the month, that suit their schedule, so they can work at McDonald’s while continuing their studies or any other commitments that they may have.
The job application mechanism was simple within the forum, whereby the visitor, as soon as he enters the website, can communicate directly with the recruitment manager in the Human Resources department to view the available job vacancies and apply right away.
Last September, McDonald’s KSA employed more than 400 Saudi youths as part of the "McDonald’s National Hiring Day" campaign.
