We’ve been hearing daily news of Expatriates leaving Saudi Arabia after the implementation of dependent fees. Expats in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia still hold 60,000+ jobs in public sector companies.
This data was released by the Ministry of Civil Service specifying that 25% jobs where expats are working in Public sector are education sector and 75% of the jobs are in healthcare segments.
Expats in Public Sector Jobs
- 14,000+ Jobs are in Education sector (out of which 10,000+ are Male Expatriates in teaching field & 4000+ are Expat Women teachers)
- 44,000+ Jobs are in Healthcare sector (out of which 26000+ are Expat Women and 17000+ are Male Expats)
The ministry said it was trying to change the mindset about public sector jobs and the role of the government in creating job opportunities for citizens. It also works to empower government agencies to create more job opportunities to new graduates.
Ministry of Civil Service has urged the Human resource department in public sector companies to comply with Saudization rules while creating jobs and try to create more job opportunities for Saudi Citizens.
There is also a news source in the Ministry of Civil Service told Al-Madina daily that the ministry had sent a letter to the Ministry of Education asking it to move all non-Saudis who fill the position of lecturers or teaching assistants from the category of teaching faculty members because this category is reserved to Saudis.
So, all the expat brothers & sisters who are currently working in Public Sector jobs should enhance their skills to sustain in their current jobs
