Construction Week and Taylor Sterling Associates are pleased to introduce BuildingMENA, the first and only job portal dedicated to the region’s construction and engineering sector.

Designed to connect the industry’s biggest talent network with key regional employers, both large and small, this simplistic and highly efficient platform will go live on 6 December 2017.

BuildingMENA will enable construction and engineering firms to showcase their latest vacancies in front of top industry talent from across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and beyond. Job seekers, meanwhile, can use the platform to quickly build CVs and profile pages, which can be easily searched by prospective employers.

The portal will allow organisations to upload video profiles, ensuring that they become much more than just a company name. The added functionality of video adverts will enable BuildingMENA’s commercial partners to distinguish themselves from the competition as employers of choice.

The platform will also enable firms to leverage the extensive research of Construction Week and ConstructionWeekOnline, the Middle East’s largest industry-specific media outlets. With 46 annual printed issues, 59,000 daily e-Newsletter readers, 20,000 app downloads, and more than 57,000 followers across various social media channels, the Construction Week brand really is in a league of its own.

Commenting on the ever-increasing market need for a sector-specific job portal, Marcus Taylor, managing partner of Taylor Sterling Associates, said: “It is estimated that there are more construction and engineering talent requirements in the MENA region than in the next top five industry sectors combined.

“Employers operating within the built environment have been waiting for the introduction of a sector-specific job portal for many years. With this in mind, we assembled a fantastic team from ITP Media Group’s Construction Week brand, and the multi-award-winning construction-sector recruitment specialist, Taylor Sterling Associates, to design a tool perfect for the MENA region’s construction and engineering sector.”

The launch of BuildingMENA’s beta phase has been timed to coincide with the Construction Week Awards 2017, which will take place at Rixos Premium Dubai on Wednesday, 6 December. For additional information about the event’s 13th edition, visit the CW Awards 2017 microsite.
