Careem is to open more opportunities centres in KSA as it seeks to offer more opportunities for Saudi individuals to work independently and help them generate extra income in their free time.

The Opportunity Centres are licensed to operate by an entrepreneurial investor, and offer Captain Registration, Training and Support, and there are already seven opportunities centres throughout the Kingdom in Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, Jazan and Hafar Al-Batin.

The plan is to extend the initiative to cities such as Mecca, Madinah, Jizan, Tabuk and Yanbu and also opening additional branches in cities where an Opportunity Centre exists.

Mohammed Younes, Operations Manager for Careem in Saudi Arabia said: “Our goal is to have a bigger outreach in our community as well as giving entrepreneurial investors the chance to open Opportunity Centres to better aid Saudi individuals to acquire a source of income that can sustain the captain’s cost of living ”

Mohammed Altaf Hussein, Opportunity Center Manager for Jeddah, added: “Our aim is to ensure high quality of service to our captains, we track a diverse set of metrics and aim to improve to always set the bar higher in our centers.”
