News of redundancies appear everyday. The numbers and names are different. So it is refreshing to hear that somebody is recruiting.
Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health is planning to hire 5,000 doctors from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Middle Eastern countries to staff dozens of new and renovated hospitals in the Kingdom, reports Arab News.
Khalid Al-Mirghlani, the spokesman for the Ministry of Health, said that they would appoint a panel to travel abroad and recruit staff. He added that the recruitment plan was geared to serve the health needs of the Kingdom’s increasing population.
Saudi has the money, and the need. Looks like they could receive more CVs than they can handle, though.
