Arabtec and its executive hiring campaign in Saudi

After a couple of weeks hiatus from blogging due to studies I thought I’d get back into the mix with a short and yet intriguing look at an advertising campaign run by one of the largest construction companies in the Gulf. The company that built the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, has been expanding of late. As part of its drive to grow its business in Saudi Arabia, the firm placed the below advert in most of the largest newspapers in Saudi Arabia.

Aside from costing what I guess to be about a million Riyals/Dirhams, my question would be what was the purpose of the campaign? Was it to hire a local executives, or was it to drive awareness? If you know, then please do tell!

What's the reason for this advert? And will it help in attracting the right candidate or a couple of thousand CVs?
