Qatar Launches National Employment Platform
Aug 26, 2020
The Ministry of Administrative Development Social and Labour Affairs (“MADSLA”) recently announced the launch of its new national employment platform (“Kawader”), which will provide a list of all of the jobs available in Qatar in both the public and private sectors.
Applicants can register on the platform starting August 24, 2020, with approximately 4,800 job becoming available in September of this year, with a goal of reaching 60% Qatarisation in the private sector, and streamlining the job search process by posting jobs electronically, and permitting applicants and employers to conduct job interviews directly without the assistance of the MADLSA.
Initially, applicant registration will be limited to male and female citizens who do not have jobs and want to work in the public or private sector. Those born to Qatari mothers may seek jobs in the private sector. Only one job may be applied for at a time.
