KUWAIT CITY, May 9: The number of Kuwaiti citizens waiting to be employed is expected to increase from 14,000 to 16,000 once the employees at the Governorate Affairs Council and Secretariat General are added to the lists of registered job applicants, reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources. Sources stated that the inclusion of the above-mentioned employees on the job wait lists harmed the ranking of the existing applicants. They explained that the correct mechanism requires uploading transfer request forms for these employees on the ‘Sahel’ platform. Sources said these forms must be filled, a copy of the qualification must be attached, and the desired workplaces must be mentioned.

Sources disclosed the applications are sorted and the authorities are addressed to obtain their approval to complete the transfer procedure without the need to include these employees to the recruitment system. Other sources think the Civil Service Commission (CSC) should resolve the issue related to the manpower needs of government agencies as per Circular No. 4/2024. In this manner, the CSC can announce the nominees by batch, sources added.

They stressed this is the most appropriate time to take such step — before the opening of registration for the 87th recruitment period on June 21, especially since 8,000 new job applicants are expected to register by then. They disclosed these applicants are the second semester graduates of Kuwait University, Public Authority for Applied Education, and external academic institutions accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education. Sources warned that the CSC’s delayed approval of the manpower needs of government agencies and its failure to announce a batch of nominees will increase the number of citizens waiting for jobs to 24,000. Sources pointed out that announcing a batch of nominees enables all those included to complete the appointment procedures until the State budget for fiscal 2024/2025 is approved or directives are issued to let them start working based on the estimated budget circulated to government agencies.
