The Expat Job Market in Saudi Arabia


The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) had just recently announced the most in-demand jobs this Year 2014 in Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries.

Saudi Arabia and the Middle Eastern region need welders, pipe fitters and wiremen, civil engineers, mechanical engineers and architects.

Large numbers of expats have jobs in engineering (particularly in the oil industry), IT, healthcare and medicine, banking and financial services, teaching (especially women), telecommunications, or construction.

There are plenty of opportunities for working in Saudi Arabia if you can offer a high level of expertise and experience.

Since Saudi Arabia is also increasingly investing in urban planning, transport infrastructure, food processing, and water resource management, foreign specialists with experience in such jobs might also have good chances.
