Saudisation Programme

  • Print Print

Whilst many Saudis are employed by the government, the private sector has historically been dominated by expatriate workers from around the world.

At SABB we actively support the Saudi Governments policy to increase the percentage of Saudi nationals in our workforce and work closely with them and industry regulators to implement the new Saudisation rules. 

We have set up three specialist recruitment centres operating training courses for Saudi graduates from universities, colleges, institutes and high schools, as well as for individuals who have a proven track record of performance within banking and other industry sectors. 

The percentage of Saudi staff employed by SABB has grown from 47% in 1990 to over 90% in February 2015.
