The Ministry of Labor (MoL) disclosed here Sunday its plan to link recruitment of manpower through its website “Taqat” in place of its previous website where the hiring process is being implemented.
The national portal will provide support for job seekers, employers and training centers, and will increase opportunities for job seekers, helping them to achieve the tasks required for the job market, said a ministry source. He said the new move will be operational on March 31 this year.
According to him the employer will have three options to choose from including localization of the profession through a list of young Saudis who are on the portal, or hiring a resident living in the Kingdom looking for the job.
The third option is the recruitment of labor from abroad to meet the request of the establishment, provided that the skill is not available among citizens or residents in Saudi Arabia.
The new move will contribute to the unification of applications for business processes, and applications for employees, in addition to the vacancies available online for the firms to access before hiring manpower from outside.
The services of the new portal will focus on the functional link between job seekers and among those employed by the private sector, where career opportunities are available through various channels such as the e-recruitment site.
