Civil Service Commission to officially stop expat recruitment

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has officially announced its decision to stop recruiting expatriates under the services category, or the second contract for the first time and will only renew contracts of workers in government sectors who meet the age conditions.

This move aims to cut down the expat numbers, based on suggestion by the Council of Ministers with regard to streamline population.

According to informed source the number of expats in government sectors is 92,000, while the number of workers in 37 areas supervised by the CSC is about 77,000 including 3,000 who are beyond legal age limits, with their contracts not renewed.

According to source, the measure is aimed at reducing spending and squandering, apart from working in-line with recommendations of the new housing policy.

Several of the job titles shouldered by expatriates so far can be covered by nationals, and overcrowding of Kuwaiti employees in government departments are due to bad distribution of employees in these sectors, administrations and departments, with some departments having huge numbers, while others may have just three to four employees, the source pointed out.
