Saudi Arabia Announces 25% Saudization of Engineering Private Sector Jobs

The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development, in collaboration with the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs and Housing, has declared the decision to Saudize 25 percent of engineering professions in the private sector, effective from July 21, 2024.This mandate will apply to all private sector establishments employing at least five individuals in engineering professions. The initiative is part of ongoing efforts to create more job opportunities for both male and female citizens across various regions of the Kingdom, as reported by Saudi Gazette.

The Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs and Housing expressed its commitment to overseeing and executing this decision, aiming to enhance citizen participation in the labor market. It will ensure the implementation aligns with the labor market’s requirements and the specific demands of engineering professions.

Private sector establishments will have access to incentives and support programs provided by the human resources and social development system to facilitate the employment of Saudi nationals. The ministry will play a key role in supporting the recruitment process, including attracting suitable workers, facilitating necessary training and qualification, and aiding in the recruitment and career continuation process.

Additionally, private sector entities will be given priority in availing themselves of nationalization support programs within the system and various support and employment initiatives offered through the Human Resources Development Fund (HADAF).
