THE Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is undergoing a major transformation of its health-care system as part of the government’s Vision 2030 program. The restructure is envisioned to be a comprehensive, effective and integrated health-care system that focuses on the wellbeing of the individual and society, including its citizens, residents and visitors.
To support the KSA government’s Vision 2030 program, the country is in need of more Filipino health-care professionals.
“Saudi Arabia is a country where Filipino health-care workers can find lucrative employment that offers a host of training opportunities and professional growth,” says Alejandro Coca, co-head at TrueProfile.io. “Here, Filipino doctors receive attractive compensation packages and have the opportunity to work in a modern, well-equipped and multi-cultural environment. For individuals interested in making the career move to the KSA, TrueProfile.io is on hand to assist! We offer a full-service recruitment solution from recruitment to deployment and can connect qualified staff with the best employers and opportunities. We’ll have also begun to offer further licensing services including processing DataFlow reports and assistance with in-country requirements in the future.’’
In fact, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Saudi Arabia government has praised Filipino health-care professionals for their “excellence” and “professionalism” in caring for the health and welfare of their people.
Filipino health-care professionals working in Saudi Arabia enjoy numerous benefits. Foremost of these is a competitive compensation package. In terms of accommodation, most Filipino medical and nursing professionals in Saudi Arabia are offered housing and transportation benefits. Some hospitals in Saudi Arabia also offer bonuses upon contract completion as well as free return tickets to their home country.
Just like other foreign professionals in Saudi Arabia, Filipino doctors are hired on a contractual basis. The duration of each contract is anywhere between 12 to 24 months with 40 to 60 hours work per week. The standard workweek is divided into morning and night shifts.
If you’re a doctor thinking of working in Saudi Arabia, there are a few preparations you need to take care of to make that plan a reality.
