Public Sector KSA Salary Guide 2020
The Vision 2030 economic development roadmap has positively impacted the employment market across all sectors, with an increase in merger and acquisition (M&A) and investment activities, development of ‘giga- projects’, privatisation of government companies, implementation of new business legislation and a significant drive to boost the tourism and cultural sector. Recruitment activity in the year ahead is set to continue the momentum it built up in 2019, with an expected increase in hires of top Saudi and international talent. The privatisation agenda is prompting new demand for PPP (public-private partnership), transaction and economic development advisors from global markets, with a focus on decentralising activities out of Riyadh and Jeddah. However, Riyadh will remain the hub of public sector recruitment in Saudi Arabia, our experts predict.
Other in-demand roles in 2020 include public policy experts, economic researchers, international destination management experts as Saudi seeks to boost its tourism industry, advisors across all disciplines, and transformation experts. Riyadh remains the prime location for Saudi talent, while the US, UK, South Africa, Ireland and Asia- Pacific are the top international source markets for advisors, subject matter experts and board advisory positions.Download Guide
