Revealed: Top 5 most applied for jobs in Saudi in 2017


Professional social network LinkedIn has revealed the five most applied for jobs on the platform in Saudi Arabia last year.

The line-up reflects the economic transformation the kingdom is undergoing as part of the Vision 2030 reforms to diversify the economy, the company said.



Surprisingly the top entry was at Saudi Arabia’s e-government programme Yesser.

“The rise of technology across every industry has created a flurry of new jobs and associated skills and these aren’t necessarily all tech roles,” said Rabih Haidar, head of Saudi Arabia territory, LinkedIn Talent Solutions.

“It is indeed very interesting to see which job types and companies are most sought-after by professionals and the shape the employment sector is starting to take in the kingdom,” added Rabih.

The company encouraged job seekers to identify what does and doesn’t make them happy about their current role, network, use the right job search tools and be persistent to secure a move.

Top five most applied for jobs in Saudi Arabia



1. Project manager at Yesser – 9,379 applications
2. Site engineer at Arabian International Company – 8,971 applications
3. Management development programme at SABB – 8,551 applications
4. IT technical support at Riyadh Airport – 8,425 applications
5. HR data analyst at Riyadh Airport – 8,335 applications
