Saudi Arabia Announces 25% Saudization of Engineering Private Sector Jobs
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).
