‘Affairs’ temporarily suspends personal interviews for senior positions in coops

The Ministry of Social Affairs, through its Quartet Committee tasked with assessing job nominations and conducting interviews for supervisory roles in cooperative societies, has temporarily suspended personal interviews for citizens seeking positions such as general managers, deputy managers, and department heads.

This suspension comes in light of the political leadership’s decision issued in December 2023, halting appointments, promotions, transfers, and secondments across all state agencies for a three-month period, with the possibility of extension, reports Al-Jarida daily quoting reliable ministry sources.

The same sources indicated that the committee, comprising representatives from the Public Authority for Manpower and the Federation of Cooperative Societies, along with a representative from the respective cooperative seeking employment, will resume personal interviews once the decision’s term expires.

The aim is to swiftly fill vacant positions within cooperative societies, with selected candidates being announced promptly. Notably, the Kuwaitization process is accorded significant attention and support from the Council of Ministers, with ongoing oversight from Minister of Social Affairs, Sheikh Firas Al-Malik. The committee remains focused on demographic modification and labor market development.

Prior to the decision to halt appointments, the committee had conducted numerous interviews with citizens interested in cooperative roles. Several candidates had successfully progressed through the interview stage following the review of requisite documents and academic certificates, in adherence to Ministerial Resolution No. 68/2023. This resolution outlines criteria, requirements, and procedures for appointing citizens to supervisory positions, including directors, deputy directors, and department heads within cooperative societies.
