Hsoub, a UK based technology company behind the largest Arabic freelancing platforms Mostaql and Khamsat, announced a partnership with Future Work, a Saudi company contracted by the Ministry of Human Resource and Social Development to manage the Kingdom’s Freelance Program. In line with Vision 2030, the partnership aims to drive the adoption of new models of work within the Kingdom and build the digital skills of Saudi freelancers.
As per the agreement, Saudi freelancers will get expedited verification and extended support on the largest freelancing platforms in the MENA region – opening more job opportunities for them now and in the future.
Supporting the Kingdom’s effort to develop human capital, self-employed Saudis registered in the Freelance Program will be granted the benefit of subsidized access to all of Hsoub Academy‘s premium courses on programming and other digital skills.
With digital transformation being one of the strategic pillars of Vision 2030, this strategic partnership supports these efforts and consolidates the gains achieved by the Freelance Program, which in turn helps create new opportunities for Saudi freelancers and spreads the culture of self-employment across the Kingdom.
This agreement will strengthen Hsoub’s role as a leading provider of employment and education platforms in the Arab world.
