We help organizations improve, optimize, and economize their recruitment operations by bringing in new synergies and innovation to every step in the recruitment process. We offer recruitment services and staffing solutions for all sectors of the economy. However, our core specialty lies in the following industry verticals:
The construction sector is one of the largest employers and acts as an economic multiplier in any economy. The number of industries that benefit from a booming construction sector are many. No wonder, this sector has always shortage of skilled and talented workers. Most of the work in construction is done on-site – that is at the location of the construction in harsh conditions. That requires the construction workers to be built from the toughest cement and most durable steel. The work in the construction sector varies from assembling to construction from scratch. Construction industry has many opportunities in the MENA, Africa, and South Asia regions. The countries in these regions are all brimming with activity and offer plenty of opportunities for businesses and job seekers. A construction company may be involved in building Vilas, resorts, houses, condominiums, apartments, office complexes, shopping malls, multiplexes, stadiums, arenas, theaters, bridges, roads, airports, seaports, and what not. Each area has need for some common skills but that are applied in a different manner. For example, a carpenter who is working with apartments has different constraints than the one who is working at a bus plaza. AIRahi Manpower recruitment consultants have worked as TA Head, HR Head, HR managers and recruiters in major construction companies. In those companies, our recruiters had managed and delivered almost all of types of skill and manpower to their teams. They bring the same experience and precision to our recruitment process.
Civil work is permanent, durable, and fixed in nature – for example the foundation, pillars, walls, ceiling, tiling, flooring, etc. Civil work forms the backbone on which any constructed structure would depend for its stability, longevity, and reliability. If the civil work has flaws, the building may have leaked or drain blockages, the bridges may become unsafe, the complexes might not withstand an earthquake. Finding good Civil Engineers, Supervisors, Surveyors, and Foremen is challenging enough. But finding the right Civil Engineer, Supervisor, Surveyor, or Foreman for a special job is even more challenging. If the team does not have adequate talent, the construction permit may be revoked, or the safety of workers and later consumers may be jeopardized. AIRahi Manpower have one of the largest number of contacts for experienced and talented Civil Engineers who would like to move.
Masonry is an art as much it is science. It is a skill that can be acquired only with practicing tirelessly and under the supervision of a master mason. Masonry involves work such as plastering, block- laying, tiling, concrete work, finishing, and providing the skeleton on which the other construction workers fit their work. Masonry is the practice of constructing or building structures from smaller units that are laid and bound together by mortar. A mason must be able to work using common and even uncommon materials of masonry construction. Such materials would include bricks, marble, granite, limestone, cast stone, concrete blocks, glass blocks, and adobe.
Carpentry is a skill or a trade craft where the primary material used is wood or timber or its derivatives. The carpenter works by cutting, grinding, shaping, and installing building materials during and after the construction work. At many places, the carpentry work is only a fraction of the complete construction work – like in homes made of stones or bricks. While in some societies and regions woodwork forms the bulk of construction work where even the structure is made of timber. False ceilings, decorative fixtures, furniture, tables and drawers, doors, and windows, are the most common uses of the carpentry skills. A carpenter must also know how to do concrete formwork – the skill of making hollow timber structures for pouring of concrete or in place of concrete. This type of work is also called shuttering in some regions. Even we provide formwork specialists who are quickly replacing the shuttering carpenters.
A steel fixer does just that – fixes steel components, units, bars, pipes, and sheets to give a particular form. Steel is one of the toughest and most durable alloys of carbon and iron. Working with steel requires skills, patience, experience, and dedication. If you measure, cut, bend, and setup steel material wrong, it can cost the company a fortune. The steel fixers we provide to clients can work on steel bars as per the exact specifications provided to them. They can work under pressure of deadlines and extreme work conditions and still do the perfect job. The steel fixers provided by AIRahi Manpower are trained to follow all health and safety protocols, always.
The plumbers and pipe fitters have very crucial role in a smart and modern construction work. As most of the cabling, piping, and connections are now underground, the work of the plumbers and pipe fitters has increased ever more. The plumbers and pipe fitters provided by AIRahi Manpower can:
Electricians are the backbone of modern day living and work. Most of the modern progress is possible because of our increasing understanding of and control over electricity. Working with electrical appliances, wirings, and sockets is dangerous yet critical. An electrician needs to understand the critical nature of his job as well as the angers involved. He must be fully prepared to always avoid all accidents and mishaps. Our electricians are trained and certified form the best vocational colleges and have plenty of field experience to reassure you.

A duct man or a duct worker can be a duct supervisor, fabricator, installer, or a foreman. Different people can do these roles – as is often the case with large projects. Or a single duct man can play all roles. Duct fabricators work with metal sheets and fabricate them into duct of varying sizes and shapes. They can work at a plant or on-site. Duct installer reads the blueprint of the building and installs the ducts in different components. He is responsible for safely securing the duct together with the structure. They also ensure that there are no leaks, cuts, or gaps in the ducts. They work alongside the electricians and plumbers just after the civil work has completed. Duct supervisor and foremen are there to supervise, guide, and direct the ducting work while keeping tab on costs, safety, and time.
The skilled welders that AIRahi Manpower provides you for your construction site work can cut and join metals with ease. They also as much experienced with other materials, as they are with metals. They are all experts in operating equipment under pressure, and in dangerous work environments. With their skills, experience, and expertise, they can weld mechanical structures, machines, or parts with great precision. All welders are competent operating ultra-modern and sophisticated welding equipment while following all safety protocols. They have first-hand experience of working on all types of materials and metals. They can:
Construction sits have routine use of heavy machinery and vehicles to move earth, dig foundation, dismantle structure, lift heavy blocks, and other such work. Not everyone can operate these vehicles as their operations requires precision, steady hands, excellent hand-eye coordination, and experience. One wrong move and they can cause severe loos of property and life. AIRahi Manpower provides you such experienced and talented heavy vehicle operators. Our operators are experts in operating and driving Bob Cats, bulldozers, Excavators, Tower Cranes, Forklifts, backhoes, dump trucks, and cargo trucks. These heavy vehicle operators are experts in maintaining security and safety protocols.
Scaffolders are required to erect temporary metal or wooden log scaffolding around structures and building sites. Using these scaffolding, other workers like window cleaners, masons, electricians, and duct men can do their jobs safely. Once all the work on the vertical exterior surface of the building is complete, scaffolders dismantle the scaffolding and pack it to be used at another site. Scaffolders’ work is one the most dangerous one as they start their work without the safety of the scaffolding thy are building. There is no formal diploma or certificate for scaffolding training. Therefore, it is imperative a construction worker who claims to be a scaffolder has completed extensive apprenticeship on many sites.
Riggers are construction workers who operate machines to move heavy objects. At a construction site heavy material like steel plates, bunch of steel rods, drilling towers, heavy cement blocks, platforms, and other heavy construction equipment need movement over foundation, in it and out of it. Many of the material needs to be lifted to many stories for use in building. Riggers also help take down heavy and large steel structures and concrete structures in a more predictable manner. A rigger must decide to which and how many tools to use. Such tools include pulleys, braces, booms, and cables. They timely inspect and ensure the safety of each equipment so that the lives of all at the construction site is safe.
We have covered all the special trades that are required at any construction site. Still as the architecture, engineering, and construction are evolving you may need a special trades person. For example, modern amphitheaters require sound and light engineers, or tradeshows require mechanical engineers to design and operate their systems. AIRahi Manpower can provide you with these and many more specialists and tradesmen who can help you in construction. Each of the staff member we hire has certifiable education, training, and experience. We ensure that nothing that is produced before you are unverified and invalid.
Our erstwhile organization AfriGulf Manpower and now AIRahi Manpower has worked closely with the MEFMA Middle East Facility Management Association in designing specialized Training programs for FM professionals. Facilities and large buildings like apartments, skyscrapers, hotels, malls, office complexes, multiplexes, stadiums, parking lots, shopping complexes, airports, ports, railway stations, bus stations, hospitals, hostels, and academic institutions are the hubs of activities in the modern world. These facilities provide people with the options to stay, work, entertain, celebrate, and get better. They require regular checks, monitoring, upkeep, maintenance, security, cleaning, and people to operate them at an optimal level. The large size of these facilities makes them a complex system with multiple sub-systems interacting with each other and the environment. Another problem is their dynamic nature and continuous 24x7 operations in and around them. Facility management services require multiple technical and skilled manpower that is challenging to acquire. Similarly, operating and maintaining the entire system and its sub-systems also requires a team of skilled technicians and trained manpower. This team must have manpower who can follow instructions to work towards a common goal. AIRahi Manpower is a leading recruitment and staffing solutions company for providing skilled, experienced, and trained manpower who can work in teams, under pressure, and with deadlines to meet. We source our talent from one of the largest talent pools of young and agile workers of South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East regions.

As the size of the facility grows the chances of miscreants defacing it, stealing, littering, or bringing harm to others also increase exponentially. Security professionals are responsible to secure the premises and the people within them. They do regular patrols of all parts, corners, and floors of the property to ensure nothing wrong or out of place is apparent. They also install security cameras at important junctions, lobbies, common areas, and exits of the premises to monitor activities from a central location. They are responsible to permit entry to legitimate visitors, workers, and residents and maintain a log of all vehicles and people entering and exiting the premises. They must keep close coordination with the local law enforcement, manage crowds, prevent property loss, check possible shoplifters, and report irregularities to authorities.
Large facilities like hospitals, academic institutions, office complexes, and residential units for students need to serve food and beverages to hundreds or thousands of people at a time. This is repeated every few hours as shifts change and people come to have their breakfasts, lunches, evening brunches, dinners, and the occasional snack. The food and beverage services are mostly done in a central dining hall where multiple counters are arranged to let people pick and choose their meals. But at facilities like hospitals and daycare centers, meals are provided to the inmates at their beds or in their units. Therefore, an army of catering professionals – including cooks, cleaners, helpers, serving staff, and health and nutrition experts – are required at such facilities.
Carpenters design, cut, connect, build, construct, install, and repair a wide range of fixtures and structures at residential, commercial, and industrial premises.

The Hospitality and Food & Beverages industries have suffered the greatest losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the industry comes to terms with the changed realities and new normal of half-filled chairs, the demand for skilled manpower is increasing. Not only people are going out, but they are doing so more often than they used to before the pandemic. As more people travel, eat out, or order deliveries of food, beverages, and go on vacations, more people are required to assist them and to make their experience enjoyable. The hospitality industry builds a relationship between a visitor and their host. It is all about making the guest or visitor happy. The biggest challenge, as before the pandemic, is the lack of access to skilled and professionally trained manpower. It is not that there is a dearth of Chefs, cooks, kitchen helpers, waiters, butchers, or hospitality/restaurant managers. The problem has always been their unavailability or unviable costs from the local market. The problem becomes acute in tourist seasons and around large events as it is a people-centric and labor-intensive industry AIRahi Manpower understood the pain point of the hospitality sector and therefore offers one the best Hospitality and F&B recruitment and staffing services in the MENA, Africa, and South Asia regions.

As a Chef de Partie, he is proficient in preparing many dishes, food items, and beverages – both local and international – to tingle the taste buds of the patrons. A CDP inspires the cooks, helpers, and other kitchen staff to become the best hosts for their guests.
Commis Chefs are at three levels – I, II, and III. The duties and roles of each may seem similar but are quite different from one another. Commis I, II, and II Chefs directly report to the Chef de Partie, Head Chef, Sous Chef. They are responsible for preparing consistently high-quality food to serve their patrons. They are responsible for preparing special or substitute meals, regulating the temperature of broilers, grills, ovens, and roasters.

Modern manufacturing is as much about sustainability, energy efficiency, and just-in-time production as it is about product assembly lines. Modern manufacturing is not only involved in turning material into man-made products, but it revolves around creating an experience. Modern tools, advanced technology, automation, and many other advancements have made manufacturing a lot efficient, making it too complex. Logistics is the management of products, processes, people, and resources when they are at a location (in storage) or are in transit. Logistics is all about transporting and making available the right tools, machines, resources, people, and material at the right time. Shipping involves the physical movement of goods from point A to point B. the movement must be timely, economical, efficient, and must avoid any kind of damages to the shipped wares. It is evident that all these sectors have gone a sea change over the last few decades and the skills that were relevant in the 2000s are no longer as relevant. Modern manufacturing logistics and shipping operations need workers who can work with automated lines and tools. They must be proficient in using sensor-based machines and vehicles and must know how to operate them using digital controls. It becomes challenging for enterprises to find workers with such skills set – a convergence of the domain expertise with ease of working with new tech.

Multi Technicians or Production Technicians work on the shopfloor of factories and work according to the instructions of production supervisors, engineers, and plant managers.
An instrument technician is a Programmable Logic Control (PLC) technician. The PLC technician is trained to install, maintain, monitor, and repair PLC devices. With increasing automation, the use of PLC devices in manufacturing and all engineering branches is increasing exponentially. The PLC devices are special purpose programmable computer systems that are highly customizable. The complexity of the PLC device depends on the number of processing elements, sensors, and external interfaces it has. These devices operate in highly harsh environments and therefore require regular upkeep. The Instrument technicians from AIRahi Manpower can:
Industrial units are always in need of heavy, light, and bus drivers. AIRahi Manpower provides experienced drivers who have all the necessary training, licenses, and certifications to work in a manufacturing, industrial, logistics, and shipping setup. The heavy vehicle drivers operate trucks, dumpers, multi-axle trailers, and road trains. These vehicles need to operate in tight spaces within the factory premises, at shipping docks, and in container depots. These drivers also carry material, machines, and goods from one location to another – many times thousands of kilometers away. Industrial and manufacturing enterprises and logistics & shipping companies also need bus drivers to ferry their workers from residential areas to the factory. In some cases, the bus drivers also ferry workers from one site to another. Light vehicles are used for shipping the goods to the dealers, retailers, and sometimes to the end customers. Light vehicle drivers are in great demand by logistics and shipping companies as well as by e-commerce and food delivery companies. Forklift Operators Industries, factories, warehouses, logistics companies, and shipping businesses all need to lift, move, load, and unload heavy goods from one place to another. Sometimes these goods or materials are hazardous, and it is not safe for humans to come directly near them. In such situations, forklifts are used to lift baggage, shipments, pipes, cable rolls, and other such heavy goods. Forklift operators or drivers are crucial logistics workers operating thee industrial-grade vehicles in factories and warehouses. Forklift operators are also in high demand at quarries, mines, railroad freight centers, ports, dry container depots, and construction sites. The forklift operators that AIRahi Manpower provides are all experienced, licensed, trained, and professional. They have worked with the most modern and powerful machinery and have great maneuvering skills.
Heavy Machine Operators are very crucial workers in any industrial, manufacturing, construction, logistics, and shipping enterprise. These operators are responsible for all machine-related functions, including configuring the machine, loading material, operating the machine, and maintaining optimal machine efficiency. Machine operators must regularly check the machine, tools, and spares for their longevity and state. They must ensure optimal utilization to reduce wastage, perform maintenance, and ensure quality checks. AIRahi Manpower recruiters ensure that the machine operators are trained, with verifiable experience. These machine operators can operate installed machines, moving machines, and equipment such as backhoes and hydraulic cranes. They also include pile-driver operators that control the equipment to hammer in heavy and large beams of concrete, wood, and steel.
Loaders are heavy equipment that is used to load, unload, and move heavy materials within a factory, warehouse, depot, or port. These machines are very heavy and voluminous and require experienced operators to work them. A well-trained loader operator can operate, maintain, and drive the loader to transport materials between the warehouse to the shop floor, or vice versa. Loader operators usually drive heavy and multi-axle heavy loader vehicles and therefore require careful selection. AIRahi Manpower has access to the best and most experienced loader operators with the necessary licenses, training, and certifications. We extensively check the employment history of these heavy machine operators to ensure that you get the best of the best candidates.
Helpers are needed for all kinds of sundry works – from cleaning to moving goods. From taking tools to technicians to doing loading and unloading. Industrial, logistics, shipping, and construction businesses all require these helpers. Logistics and Warehouse helpers receive and issue merchandise, prepare packages for shipping and transport, and manage storage. They help in loading and unloading goods and packages from trucks, shelves, and other storage units. They are responsible for cleaning and sanitization of the warehouse, including its upkeep. Production helpers perform duties that require fewer skills. Their duties include receiving or supplying materials, tools, and spares to technicians and engineers. They clean the work area, machines, and maintain the equipment superficially. They assist machine operators and technicians in their work as well as pack and unpack goods and materials.
The rapid urbanization of larger cities poses a unique problem of transporting many people at a time at high speeds. Cities cannot allow more private vehicles for want of parking and reducing traffic and carbon emissions. The buses can at best work as short-haul feeder systems. Therefore, metropolitan railways or Metro projects are in great demand to provide connectivity with distant suburbs of a metropolis to its city center. The most severe problem that any metro or rail project faces is the shortage of skilled manpower. The need for a trained engineer with unique experience and foresight is paramount. Senior engineers can work as consultants and supervise the work of junior engineers. The work of on-site staff such as supervisors, technicians, and laborers cannot be spread over projects. You need dedicated resources who can work in harsh conditions and deliver on time and quality. AIRahi Manpower is experienced in providing certified, trained, and experienced technicians in various trades and with multiple skills. Our technicians completed their apprenticeship from reputed training institutions run by metro and railway companies in South Asia, Africa, and the MENA region.
All projects and production & maintenance facilities require an overall supervisor or foreman to oversee the work of technicians and workers.

Supervisors or foremen are required to manage smaller teams with differing skill sets or at different places with multiple skills. They have technicians and workers in their team with specialized skills. These foremen lead their teams of electricians, instrument technicians, cleaners, and other workers.
