Here is another recruiter to avoid and operates under different businesses: Businessfit.com and fearlesslearningcanada.com. aka Jody Bishop from Toronto Canada, Recruiting for Jizan/Jazan University.

Long story, short. Go through many months of securing a position, get the visa for myself and two children after a ridiculous long time, constantly trying to contact this person to get them to do the job they in the end want to be compensated for by the university, but the university didn't secure the visa for my wife or mother per a written agreement. Then when confronted this recruiter turns and runs without fulfilling his part of the agreement and nothing from the university.

I started out with a group of 65, a majority, about 45, now have not went over after 4 months; a group of Canadians probably will never go due to the Visa battle between Canada and KSA; and only a few singles got over but with many problems as well (unpaid flights, etc.). Yes SACM was supposed to pay for flights but then some people were told to pay out of their pocket, that is a big warning right there. This whole thing was a huge nightmare and waste of time.

Caveat emptor here too.

Another to-be-avoided recruiter for Jazan, but this time for JEC-PT, is 'footprints'. The advert they have placed paints a very pleasant picture of a very unpleasant place of work/place to live. Even their pictures of 'Jazan Economic City' are computer-generated (as this 'city' actually consists of 2-3 portacabins in the desert), and come nowhere near to accurately portraying the bleak, depressing location which is Jazan city, where the teachers will actually be based.
