Important announcement for hiring foreign engineers

By August 24, 2017News

The Ministry of Labor and Social Development and the Saudi Council of Engineers have agreed to stop the recruitment of expatriate engineers with less than five years of professional experience.

In addition, the expatriate engineers are required to undergo a professional test and a personal interview through the Authority to ensure that the expatriate engineer is familiar with the profession and its specialization.

The decision comes after a previous decision by the Saudi Council of Engineers, which was implemented a couple of months prior, by requiring a three-year experience, a personal interview and a professional test as a minimum for any expatriate who is brought to work in the Kingdom.
