NES is proud to be at the forefront of leading diversity initiatives across the world. 

In Saudi Arabia women have recently been allowed to drive within the country. Previously, only men could obtain driving licences and if a woman was caught driving in public, she risked receiving a fine or being arrested.

NES recruited the team responsible for training the first female driving instructors in the country. The new team will work to train new assessors and instructors for a period of up to two years.

Deborah Sherwood, featured in the BBC article, comments:

“We would like to thank NES for their superb management of our contracts. NES were very supportive and informative during our relocation to Saudi and have taken care of our visa requirements efficiently."

"NES Global Talent handled our complicated situation. By their sheer hard work and determination they made the whole process as smooth as possible. We truly feel we are in good hands and would recommend NES to any colleagues wishing to seek positions abroad.”
