Hiring in Bahrain

Located in the Persian Gulf and close to neighbours Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE, Bahrain has similarly leveraged its natural resources to create a socially-secure, highly developed economy that is diversifying through tourism. Picture amazing beaches, traditional cuisine, enchanting desert and of course one of the Middle East’s most exciting formula one tracks.

Bahrain has a high number of expats (over half of the nation’s 1.5 million inhabitants), making hiring and doing business comparable to similar developed nations. Worker’s rights have improved over the last couple of decades, giving Bahrain a ‘very high’ rating on the Human Development Index.

The capital city of Manama is a major finance hub in the Middle East and is becoming a popular tourist destination. English is widely spoken and along with Arabic, is one of the main business languages.
