RIYADH — NEOM and the Technical and Vocational Training Corp. (TVTC) formed a partnership on Sunday that will lead to the creation of thousands of job opportunities for members of the local community in Tabuk and NEOM regions.

Over the next five years NEOM will require thousands of vocational jobs for the construction, development and management of NEOM across a range of sectors. The partnership with TVTC will ensure that up to 6,000 residents have the education and experience required to fill those roles.

The training will focus on skills for key industries including energy, construction, operations and maintenance, hospitality, transportation and logistics. NEOM will provide the graduates with jobs with contractors working on the project and in companies within NEOM.

The training will be conducted by globally-recognized institution in coordination with TVTC to guarantee that graduates have hands on experience to join the project immediately.

NEOM CEO, Nadhmi Al-Nasr stated: “To develop NEOM we envision we must invest in the talent we have available in NEOM and the adjacent communities in Tabuk to be our partners in developing the land of the future. This agreement with TVTC is just a start and we will continue investing in human capital within NEOM or Saudi Arabia.”

Today’s announcement is the latest in a series of projects launched under NEOM’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program.

The Program launched early in 2019 focused on training, providing work opportunities and sending students on scholarships programs abroad.

In 2020, the program will add more initiatives to develop skills within the local community and involve residents in the future of NEOM. — SG
