Angry Saudis: Foreign Ministry jobs are pre-booked and advertising is just a formality | A homeland tweeting outside the flock


The recent announcement by the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the availability of job opportunities for both sexes angered Saudi activists, who emphasized that this media is only a formality and that these jobs are reserved in advance according to favoritism and nepotism.

Yesterday, Sunday, the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the availability of a number of vacant contractual jobs to be filled by qualified national cadres for women and men in a number of specializations.

According to the website of the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the submission will be from today, Monday 25/11/1442 AH corresponding to 5/7/2021 AD, until next Sunday 1/12/1442 AH corresponding to 7/11/2021 AD.

But activists met this announcement with frustration and anger, questioning the integrity of the tests and the basis for selecting applicants.

In this context, an activist wrote, expressing her anger: “Jobs are pre-booked. Advertising is just a formality.”

And she continued, “Tomorrow we will see the Asami’s announcement of the same usual families who take the majority of positions in most sectors and hire their sons and daughters and those who are dear to them and refuse to be taken by anyone else!”
