Saudi Arabia to localize jobs at theme parks, entertainment centers

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development issued a decision that stipulates localizing jobs at standalone and seasonal theme parks and family entertainment centers by 70 percent and at theme parks in malls by 100 percent, state news agency (SPA) reported on Thursday.

The decision, which will go into effect on September 23, 2022, aims to provide job opportunities to citizens across the Kingdom and enhance the Saudis’ participation in the labor market.

The professions localized according to the decision include branch and department managers, department supervisors, assistant branch managers, fund accounting supervisors, customer service employees and sales and marketing specialists.
