Approval of continuation to lift ban on 299 vacant jobs okayed
KUWAIT CITY, May 30: The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has officially agreed to lift the ban on 971 job grades for the second contract, out of the 1,303 job grades requested by the Ministry of Education to contract with non-Kuwaiti teachers for the 2022/2023 academic year, reports Al-Qabas daily. In a letter addressed to the Ministry of Education, CSC affirmed the approval of the continuation to lift the ban on 299 vacant jobs in the remaining second contract of the previous 2021/2022 academic year, and lift the ban on 672 vacancies in the second contracts within the ministry’s 2022/2023 budget, which is the number of end-of-service decisions.
CSC requested that it be provided with the rest of the 336 vacancies to complete the number required to lift the ban, stressing the need to observe several conditions, including that none of them had been included in the canceled jobs in the ministry’s draft budget for the 2022/2023 fiscal year, and not be among the suspended contracts in implementation of the decision of CSC regarding the rules and procedures for Kuwaitization of government jobs.
CSC stressed that these positions should not be filled except with the positions of members of the educational staff for which there are no Kuwaitis qualified to be nominated to fill them. It also noted that they should not be appointed until after referring to CSC in this regard, and after the period for which salaries were paid to its “terminated” occupants in return for their periodic leave balance.
It also stressed the need to provide it with a statement every three months, explaining the preparation of the contracts that have been used and the appointment of these contracts, for which it has agreed to lift the ban, and not to use any of the contracts that have become vacant in implementation of the CSC Resolution No. 11/2017 regarding rules and procedures for Kuwaitization of government jobs upon completion of the contracting procedures for the jobs of the educational authority.
It insisted on the need to not complete the procedures of any contracts with non-Kuwaiti employees (of local or external contracting) for the jobs of the educational authority unless after referring to CSC to obtain prior approval. CSC indicated its approval of the continuity of the contract with the remaining number (189) job grades out of 262 grades approved by CSC for the jobs of social and psychological researchers for the children of Kuwaiti women and the citizens of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries to be used in contracting with them for the next academic year (2023/2022). It affirmed that the ministry’s request to nominate those registered with CSC in the central employment system and have social and psychological specializations is considered a continuous need in light of the ministry’s request to contract with non-Kuwaitis to date.
