National Hiring


More companies now understand the importance of hiring and nurturing local talent and this is echoed with multiple government initiatives across the GCC. Aventus has a strong track record in placing GCC Nationals into key roles, some of which are highlighted below.

One particular GCC initiative is the KSA 2030 vision. Aventus is proud to have assisted multiple government and semi-governmental entities in attracting and retaining international talent but more importantly enabling top Saudi talent to access these roles which play a key role in the 2030 vision. Aventus has always had a focus on these roles but recently noticed a steady increase in national mandates and will continue to strive to add value in these searches as well as proactively assist candidates.

As GCC market specialists Aventus understand the inner workings of the region and pride ourselves on being accessible on the ground in all GCC countries for face to face meetings. Our seniors are mobile and understand the value of developing partnerships in person with both clients and candidates. Some of our main successes in terms of GCC National hiring are listed below:
