Recruitment companies and offices in Saudi Arabia are geared up to resume hiring of domestic workers from Ethiopia.
The Federation of Saudi Chambers (FSC) issued a circular to all chambers of commerce and industry in the Kingdom as directed by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development.
The ministry directed the FSC that an urgent circular shall be sent to the Saudi recruitment firms asking them to communicate with employment offices and agencies in Ethiopia to activate their accounts with the Saudi embassy in order to expedite the launch of the recruitment process.
The federation urged the stakeholders and officials of the recruitment companies and offices to initiate contact with the Ethiopian offices with regard to the resumption of the recruitment procedures. The ministry’s directive paves the way for the resumption of the recruitment of workers from Ethiopia after three years.
The ministry had previously halted the visa issuance procedures from the African country.
