The certified public accountant and SOCPA-certified VAT specialist has several accomplishments on the professional level, including a study he presented in 2018 on the phenomena of offshoring and secondment in auditing firms.
The study was assigned and funded by the SOCPA to assess the problems of offshoring and secondment in Saudi auditing firms, and to provide solutions to reduce negative consequences in the auditing market.
In 2019, Aljuaid, a certified strategic manager, also prepared a financial five-year plan for the Institute of Consulting Research and Studies at UQU. The same year, he also submitted a long-term financial proposal for Meat Star Company, as a requirement for financial reorganization under bankruptcy law.
