Saudi Recruitment Office: Exam, Interview and Requirements for Saudi Employment

by admin on May 31, 2010

My Great Web page

There are several things that I would like to share to you about the application process for Saudi employment through POEA and the Saudi Recruitment Office (SRO). In this post I will focus on the examination and interview phase of acquiring a Saudi employment.

My girlfriend waited for about a month before she received a text message informing her of the scheduled examination and interview at the SRO. You will be informed a week earlier so you still have time to prepare.

The Saudi Recruitment Office (SRO) is a government entity organized by the Ministry of Health (MOH), Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). It accepts and processes applications of medical workers for direct deployment exclusively to government hospitals and other medical institutions in KSA.

Saudi Recruitment Office

The Saudi Recruitment office (SRO) is at the 18th floor of BDO tower along Makati Ave. corner Paseo De Roxas in Makati City. From LRT Buendia, ride a Guadalupe bound jeepney and alight at Makati Ave. Landmark is the Petron gasoline station on the left and a Starbucks coffee chain on the right. From Starbucks, you will have to walk a couple of blocks before you can get to the BDO tower which is a gold colored building.

On your scheduled date, be punctual, you have to be there at least 30 minutes before your scheduled examination because you will be required to look for your files (the one that you submitted to POEA) and register.

There is no dress code but just like any other job exam and interview, try to look your best. But remember, Arabs are very conservative people so I would recommend that you do not apply too much make up, a little powder and lip gloss will do.

Applicants will be given an hour to finish the 50 item examination. Right after the exam all those who passed will be interviewed and those who were unsuccessful will be sent home. According to my girlfriend, most of the interviews lasted for about 10-15 minutes and clinical questions will be asked.

You will be informed right away about the result of the interview and a letter of appointment will be offered to you indicating the amount of your monthly salary.

Present the letter of employment along with the medical report form to POEA and attend an initial orientation about the entire process and requirements that you need to accomplish. I would suggest that you start fixing your papers the moment that you received your letter of appointment because you will only be given a month to comply.

In my next post I will discuss the process of authenticating your documents (Red Ribbon) up to the Department of Foreign Affairs.

@nabs..me too.i was interviewed last april 13.and i too advised to wait for their text but until now i havnt recieve any from them.so i decided to went there(sro) and they said maybe within 2-3 weeks(3rd wk now) they will inform us and they were saying like our papers has been sent to the ministry and that they will not going to have another delegation until all 200plus in a waiting list are been deployed.so i figured out,yun nga cguro wala ng job order.so maybe the process takes time thats why until now we’re still waiting.lets just pray that there is finally good news coming out this june.=)

risa May 26, 2012 at 2:43 PM

i just want to ask kelan po ang susunod na deligation????

lai June 6, 2012 at 11:34 PM

hi! i’m glad to know that they are starting to inform applicants for the flight schedule, that only means we will be the next one and hopefully continues na ang process for deployment.. i heard there are many applicants waiting for the encoding and OA.

i’m waiting for the “precious text”.. To those who received a text from SRO let us know wen u will be deploy.

thanks! hoping for the best! God Bless to all!
