More than 4,000 jobs on offer at TVTC employment forum

As part of the drive to employ young Saudis in order to meet Saudization requirements, the Technical and Vocational Training Council (TVTC) Makkah recently staged a 2-day forum that brought together 69 companies and institutions having on offer 4279 jobs for Saudi youth in different businesses in Makkah Jeddah, Taif and Qunfudah.
“The forum had excellent results. We held the event in different places at the same time this year and we have plans to organize the same event on a yearly basis with the help of the Ministry of Labor, JCCI and HRDF (Human Resources Development Funds) to get the best results for our graduates and to provide them with good job opportunities in the private sector,” said Dr. Rashid bin Mohammed Al- Zahrani, President of TVTC Makkah.
Dr. Al- Zahrani said that the program to employ young Saudis demands a massive joint effort involving the Ministry of Labor, JCCI and Human Resources Development Funds (HRDF) and others.
Dr. Al-Zahrani also announced on Monday the signing of an agreement with Nesma and its subsidiaries to train 235 young Saudis over the next six months in welding, electricity installation, scaffolding, plumbing, carpentry, refrigeration, air conditioning, blacksmithing, sheet metal working, machinery operation and maintenance, tiling, plastering, and painting.
Dr. Al-Zahrani said TVTC wants the business sector to put more effort into fulfilling their social responsibilities by forming strategic partnerships.

Saudi Arabia ‘strongly condemns’ Houthi attack on Yemen UN monitors

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia on Friday strongly condemned the targeting of “UN personnel by the Iran-backed Houthi militia in Yemen” after cease-fire monitors came under fire.
The attack took place on Thursday in Hodeidah, where a truce agreed in talks in Sweden came into force last month.
The Houthi militia “have violated their signed commitments in Stockholm and continue to flout international law and escalate their aggression against the Yemeni people,” Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States Prince Khalid bin Salman tweeted on Friday.


The UN said one round of small arms fire struck a UN-marked armored vehicle that was part of convoy carrying chief monitor Patrick Cammaert.
The UN monitors arrived in Hodeida — the entry point for the bulk of Yemen’s imports — on Dec. 23. The UN Security Council this week agreed to expand the force to 75 monitors.
