Doha: The Ministry of Administrative Development Social and Labour Affairs (MADSLA) has launched the national employment platform (Kawader), in which all jobs available in the State of Qatar in all sectors – in government bodies and private entities – will be displayed, with the aim of providing citizens with the opportunity to obtain jobs that suit their qualifications.
Job seekers will be able to register on the platform as of Monday, August 24, 2020, and 4,800 jobs will be offered in all specialties of various scientific qualifications starting September 2020.
Minister of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs HE Yousuf Mohammed Al Othman Fakhroo thanked Prime Minister and Minister of Interior HE Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al-Thani for his constant and continuous support for the national efforts aimed at employing national cadres in the government and private sectors, and for the approval of raising the rates of Qatarization in the private sector to 60%, and His Excellency’s directives to simplify procedures, remove bureaucratic obstacles, and speed up the completion of the conversion of all services provided to the public into electronic services.
The Minister affirmed that MADSLA has launched the National Employment Platform (Kawader), to be a flexible and easy way that enables job seekers to find job opportunities that match their qualifications and experiences in the government and private sectors, and link job nominations with the authorities directly to conduct personal interviews with job seekers without the need for the Ministry to intervene in the process of selecting the appropriate job and the entity.
The Minister said that these procedures are carried out electronically, starting with creating a CV, registering, selecting the appropriate job, and conducting a personal interview by the body concerned, up to the acceptance and appointment, adding that the Ministry’s role through the Kawader platform is to coordinate with the authorities to provide and offer job opportunities, follow up the registration processes and creation of a CV, in addition to guiding and counseling job seekers, and following up and coordinating with employers regarding interviews and appointment.
On Monday, August 24, the platform will be available for job seekers to log in, register and create CVs, and in September 2020, they will be able to view and choose the suitable jobs, HE the Minister said.
As a first stage, registration on the platform will be for female and male citizens who do not have jobs in order to get nominated and look into jobs in the government and private sectors, His Excellency said, adding that those born to Qatari mothers shall be nominated for jobs in the private sector.
He explained that Kawader comes as a part of the efforts taken to enhance the Ministry’s role in registering and following up on employment for jobs seekers in the public and private sectors, as the number of recruitments for 2019 reached 3,570 job seekers.
The Minister noted that national cadres wishing to obtain jobs should complete academic education in areas that are compatible with the requirements of the labor market to ensure rapid access to suitable job opportunities, or join the government scholarship program or professional training programs that allow them to choose the required specializations in the labor market, which will ensure them to get the right job.
The Minister called on all job seekers of various qualifications and experiences to take advantage of the services provided by the National Employment Platform Kawader, through the link provided by the platform, while praising the working team who developed the platform for their great efforts that led to its achievement in this distinguished way.
