Outsourcing firm Proven to enable clients meet Saudisation goals

Saudi Arabia wants localisation of 20 per cent of 117 engineering fields by beginning of 2021


Outsourcing firm Proven wants to help its Saudi customers fulfil their engineers’ Saudisation requirements. As part of its outsourcing service, clients can now choose from candidates from Proven’s pool of engineers to work with their organisation.

Launched under the umbrella of Saudi’s Vision 2030, the Saudi Nationalisation scheme (often referred to as Saudisation) aims to create improved job opportunities for Saudi nationals, subsequently reducing the unemployment rate. Under this initiative, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development announced the localisation of 20 per cent of the 117 engineering fields available in the country, with the implementation date at the beginning of 2021.

The government with the aim of offering fair employment opportunities for local engineers and secure future opportunities that might be available to those currently pursuing engineering degrees. According to predictions, the Saudisation of engineering jobs will create as many as 7,000 positions, each with a minimum remuneration of SAR7,000 per month.

Proven will also assist clients in recruiting engineers as per their criteria and conduct required background checks.
