A SaaS platform that simplifies and accelerates recruitment, making hiring simpler, quicker, and more reliable.”

At Gateway Jobs our vision is bold yet simple. To build a platform that becomes the benchmark for service sector recruitment in the Middle East.

Based in Dubai, our founders have worked within the UAE service sector since 2017 and understand the nuances and challenges faced by companies in hiring and retaining good workers. Our goal is to remove barriers, accelerate the recruitment process and provide the data to make smart human capital investments. We are always looking for partnership and investment opportunities to continue expanding into a global ecosystem for employers and employees to meet, learn and progress.

"Resource heavy and unreliable hiring practises are commonplace in the UAE service sector. The recruitment process is burdened by volume and diversity, which pulls resource from operational activities and driving P&C and L&D agendas. Despite hiring marketplaces and the availability of broader verification and assessment software, there is no dedicated ecosystem to support candidates and employers, that  protects and serves the hospitality industry"

We’re hiring!
