Munjz, Saudi Arabia’s first online marketplace for home services, announced plans to register and train 950 young Saudis in 2019 in line with its vision for creating employment opportunities in the home maintenance market.
The startup has signed an agreement with the Technical and Vocational Training Corporation in the Eastern Region to train and equip the graduates.
“Currently, we have a database of 400 young people who wish to join the work with Munjz in the field of home maintenance. We have trained and completed the registration of more than 100 young Saudis in home maintenance sector to work as a service providers,” commented Munjz founder Abdullah Al Daij.
Munjz aims to train and register 950 young Saudis and enable them to enter the labour market.
“With this plan and approach, we strive to reduce the number of bulk labour and to increase the number of Saudi technicians. Munjz will train them how to handle the requests and offer them tools to do the job, helping them achieve clear and attainable career growth,” Al Daij stated.
Launched in 2017, Munjz came into being when its founder Abdullah Al Daij noticed the lack of quality property maintenance in the Kingdom to be extremely frustrating.
Munjz, one of the main projects to be incubated by Badir Program for Technology Incubators and Accelerators, offers more than 10 home maintenance services in 10 cities across the Kingdom and targets to have presence in more than 21 cities by the end of 2019.
Munjz provides services by connecting handymen with customers through its mobile app, providing services such as plumbing, electrical, air-conditioning, cleaning, furniture assembly, CCTV etc.
Within a couple of clicks, customers on Munjz can get a home service done by a licensed and vetted company, instead of spending days researching and negotiating rates with several providers.
