Ministry facilitates jobs in GCC countries for Jordanians

AMMAN – The Labour Ministry has recently started to announce job vacancies available for Jordanians in Gulf countries. 

The ministry posts available job opportunities on its website and also sends press statements to daily newspapers listing vacancies for Jordanian engineers, teachers, university instructors, accountants and professionals in various fields. 

Mohammad Khatib, the ministry’s spokesperson, told The Jordan Times that there are labour attachés at five Jordanian embassies in the Gulf — Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates — who coordinate with authorities in these countries to compile the available jobs. 

Khatib said the efforts by the ministry do not clash with the interests of private recruitment agencies in Jordan that mainly deal with the Gulf job market. 

“We work as a link between authorities in the Gulf and job seekers here,” Khatib said, adding that the ministry runs the announcement with contact details of recruiters. 

“Recruiters in the Gulf or their agents [Jordanian agencies] in Jordan receive the resumes of job seekers and do the interviews,” he added. 


The official said the announcement for jobs abroad, which has been going on for the last few months, is part of the ministry’s efforts to reduce unemployment among Jordanian professionals, noting that hundreds of vacancies have been promoted recently.
