Sonru Welcomes Gulf International Bank (GIB)

GIB is owned by the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries. Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund being the major shareholder.

In addition to its main subsidiaries, London-based Gulf International Bank (UK) Ltd., and Riyadh-based GIB Capital LLC, it has branches in London, New York, Abu Dhabi, Dhahran, Riyadh and Jeddah with representative offices in Dubai and Beirut.

In line with their strategic goals to provide innovative, convenient and customised financial products and services they have also led talent acquisition (TA) ‘challenges’ by innovating their TA process through Sonru Video Interviewing.

GIB’s Vice President - Head of Recruitment & Staff Benefits Administration Mr Nawaf Kably was given the Sonru Recruitment Innovator Certificate as the first financial services provider in Bahrain to adopt video interviewing.

“Overall we have invited 200 candidates to complete the Sonru interview to date. These candidates are mostly based in Saudi Arabia. Although we were very excited about the product, and the benefits it would bring, we had some concerns over how the candidates would respond to this initially,” said Khalid Alsada, Recruitment Manager at GIB. “However after reviewing the results from 175 applicants we are pleased with the overall outcome, we were particularly impressed with the positive comments about the video interview from candidates mentioning that it portrayed the bank in a favourable, modern and innovative light. We were positively encouraged by the number of women who completed the assessment, as there was a level of uncertainty as to whether they would take part. We also use an online psychometric assessment as part of our process, Sonru excellently supplements this, as it helps add a more comprehensive picture to the assessment scores and allows us to see the whole person, their communication skills, self-presentation skills and much more.”
