From April 1, 2022, the ministry will implement Saudization in the fields of marketing and administrative support, creating more than 12,000 jobs for Saudi men and women.

Under the Nitaqat Saudization program, the salary for one Saudi employee was set at SR5,500 in these jobs.

The Minister of Human Resources and Social Development is Eng. Ahmad Al-Rajhi issued a decree requiring that 30 percent of the staff in marketing professions be Saudiized by private sector firms that employed five or more members of staff.

Marketing professionals covered by Saudization include: managers, marketing specialists, advertising and public relations managers, marketing sales experts, advertising designers, and commercial advertising photographers.
