The 19 exclusive Saudi jobs

The new labor regulations state that 19 job titles can never be occupied by non-Saudis. These jobs are: Executive HR manager, HR manger, labor affairs manager, staff relations manager, staff relations specialist, staff relations clerk, recruitment clerk, staff affairs clerk, attendance control clerk, receptionist (general), hotel receptionist, health receptionist, claims clerk, treasury secretary, security, broker, key specialist, customs broker and female sales specialists (women only).
The 2013 labor policy supplants the fuzz that took place during the last few months. Physicians, engineers, nurses, educators, designers, admins, and even the greater spectrum of technicians, are all free to be occupied by non-Saudis, as long as they are out of the exclusive list.
Now, all that is required from the bigger providers of valuable human resources to the Kingdom, mainly from Asia, is suggested as follows: They should activate awareness campaigns addressing their citizens. These campaigns should utilize every media tool — radio, TV, papers, posters, gallopers, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
