Ministry of Social Affairs launches second phase of ‘Kuwaitization’ interviews.

Additionally, 11 more job opportunities will be announced in 7 new cooperatives later. The interviews for the second batch will continue from the 24th of this month until the 7th of September, following Ministerial Resolution No. 68/2023, which specifies the criteria, requirements, and procedures for filling supervisory positions in cooperatives. To expedite employment within associations, the committee will intensify personal interviews to accommodate as many eligible citizens as possible, aiming for an 80% pass rate. After completing interviews with all applicants, selected candidates will be announced.

In case of ties, a lottery will determine the final selection. Emphasizing the significance of Kuwaitization, the process receives extensive support from the Council of Ministers, with close oversight from the Minister of Social Affairs and the committee dedicated to demographic modification and labor market development. Under the leadership of Acting Undersecretary Dr. Khaled Al-Ajmi, the Ministry of Social Affairs has renewed the committees’ mandate to implement the Kuwaitization plan for supervisory positions in cooperative societies, effective immediately in collaboration with relevant authorities.

The quartet committee responsible for studying nomination files and conducting personal interviews for Kuwaitization will begin next week, interviewing approximately 120 citizens competing for supervisory positions, including general managers, deputies, and department heads across about 20 associations. The committee, comprising representatives from the Public Authority for Manpower, the Federation of Associations, and a representative from the employing association, is finalizing interview schedules while adhering to Ministerial Resolution No. 68/2023.

This resolution specifies the criteria and procedures for assigning supervisory roles, including cooperative directors, deputies, and department heads. The committee assures applicants of its impartiality and commitment to selecting competent individuals capable of enhancing cooperative operations. Upon completion of interviews, successful candidates will be announced. To ensure fairness, transparency, and excellence in cooperative leadership, gradual penalties await associations’ boards that fail to comply with ministerial directives regarding position filling. Stricter measures will follow persistent non-compliance.
