This report summarizes key findings from a detailed study on the Saudi job market that was conducted through the months of April to August 2019. The study seeks to identify economic sectors, job profiles, and skills that hold great promise for the KSA workforce in the coming future. Sectors of priority have been selected based on multiple factors that include contribution to GDP, wage and wage growth, expected contribution to new jobs, and geographic labor market and tertiary enrolment alongside dozens of employer interviews across sectors.
The findings of the report are intended to serve each of the key stakeholders of the Saudi workforce: job seekers, employers, and training providers. Through this report, we hope to enable decisions that help bridge the skill gap, strengthen KSA’s human capital, and contribute to the fulfilment of the Saudi Vision 2030.
