Monday, May 29, 2023

RIYADH — The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD) has opened up opportunities for Saudi citizens and residents to work during the Hajj season 1444 AH through the Ajeer portal.

MHRSD has called on all citizens and residents who wish to work in the holy sites during this year's Hajj to upload their resumes in the Ajeer portal.

The ministry enables establishments working during the Hajj season to issue permits under the name "Ajeer Al-Hajj" for their workers inside the holy sites, and employ Saudis and residents temporarily in order to cover their needs of labor during the Hajj.

The Ajeer portal enables authorized establishments to work during the Hajj to publicize available job opportunities via the platform.

Ajeer also enables those who are searching for jobs to check on the portal and apply for suitable opportunities.

MHRSD said that the establishments authorized to issue the permits include domestic pilgrim service companies, and civil institutions approved by the concerned authorities.

These also include labor suppliers located in Makkah, Madinah and Jeddah.

As for the conditions specified for Saudi individuals to be able to get the permit, MHRSD clarified that they must be older than 18 years old.

As for the residents, they are required to be working with one of the labor supply establishments, after obtaining the consent of their actual employer.

The move comes within MHRSD's efforts in organizing the work during the Hajj season, and to facilitate the work for the establishments and workers participating in the Hajj work.

MHRSD also aims to increase the quality level of the services provided to the Hajj pilgrims and improve their experience during the pilgrimage.

The portal enables establishments and individuals to benefit from the Ajeer Al-Hajj service electronically in a smooth manner through the website:

Ajeer is considered the new interface to display available job opportunities inside Saudi Arabia. It enables individuals to submit their CVs and apply for different jobs in several companies and various sectors.

Ajeer seeks to enhance the flexibility and movement of workers in the labor market, in order to cover the establishments' needs, in addition to increasing the productivity and effectiveness of the labor force in the market.

It also provides flexible solutions for employers including sharing of information, alongside reducing dependence on external recruitment.
