14,000 Kuwaiti citizens await employment nominations

The Civil Service Commission reported that among job seekers are 6,500 university graduates, half of whom are engineers, and 3,000 diploma holders.

  • Sources said 11,000 Kuwaitis were previously nominated for employment in the central employment system.

  • Sources cautioned against implementing the new employment mechanism, which is expected to increase the number of individuals waiting to 25,000, including new registrants, individuals on the waiting list, and candidates.

According to sources speaking to Al-Anbaa newspaper, the Civil Service Commission has 14,000 citizens awaiting employment nominations. This includes 6,500 university graduates, half of whom are engineers, 3,000 diploma holders, 3,000 with secondary, intermediate, and primary education, and the remaining 1,500 with vocational, parallel education, master’s, and doctoral degrees.

Sources explained that there are 3,500 engineers from various specialties including civil, mechanical, chemical, industrial, petroleum, roads and communications. They emphasized the need to halt the graduation of more engineers, both within and outside Kuwait.

Additionally, they mentioned that other university majors include 1,200 accountants and legal professionals, approximately 500 individuals in media studies, around 400 in political sciences, and the remaining students are divided between arts and social sciences.

Sources further revealed that 11,000 citizens were previously nominated for employment in the central employment system. They cautioned against implementing the new employment mechanism, which is expected to increase the number of individuals waiting to 25,000, including new registrants, individuals on the waiting list, and candidates.

The new mechanism stipulates that candidates who fail to complete appointment procedures within 30 days will have their roles canceled and be returned as new registrants on the waiting list.

The sources questioned whether the 15,000 available jobs will cover the current waitlist or those registered from the 21st of this month onwards, a number expected to be no less than 8,000 graduates from the second course. They expressed concern that some private sector workers may resign to take advantage of the 15,000 jobs.
