Legal KSA Salary Guide 2020
Saudi Arabia’s efforts to diversify its economy and grow the private sector under the Vision 2030 roadmap are bearing fruit, with a positive impact on hiring trends in the legal industry. Vision 2030 has impacted the employment market across all sectors, creating new jobs through the privatisation of government companies from across 10 sectors ranging from health, housing, education, labour, social affairs and energy, most notably the initial public offering of state oil giant Saudi Aramco and widespread legislative reforms to make it easier to set up businesses and attract foreign capital to the kingdom.
The bulk of legal hiring activity continues to take place in the capital Riyadh, due to it being the hub of public sector employment with government departments and other agencies based there and the focal point of Vision 2030 initiatives. In the legal sector, in-house teams are expected to expand further following a raft of C-suite-level appointments in 2019, with an additional increase in junior-to-mid- level hires.Download Guide
