Saudi women take up hospitality jobs

Saudi is no more a conservative land as it is witnessing some massive social changes as part of Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud’s ambitious drive towards a more prosperous future. Especially, the steps taken towards empowering women politically, economically and socially is laudable. Now, as part of the vision, 41 Saudi women have taken up hospitality jobs in Makkah hotels.

From now onwards, we can see Saudi women adorning the reception, human resources departments, reservations and the catering areas. “Opportunities become available to us as women when we are armed with knowledge and determination,” said a very confident Receptionist Reem Bakatian.
