Recruitment Process

Aramco Services Company (ASC) is pleased to provide support for candidates from North and South America interested in careers working for Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia.

After a candidate submits an online resume for a posted job opening, the resume is reviewed by a recruiter at ASC. If a candidate possesses the required qualifications, the resume is transmitted to the Saudi Aramco hiring organization. In general, the following recruitment process can be expected:


If a candidate appears to be qualified on the basis of his or her resume, the Saudi Aramco hiring organization will request that the candidate complete an Application for Employment.

Saudi Aramco selects the candidates to interview and requests ASC to coordinate scheduling. Interviews may be conducted at ASC offices, via video conferencing, or at recruiting events worldwide.


Because changing jobs is a major decision for most families, both candidates and spouses are required to attend an orientation program, which addresses topics such as lifestyle, housing, schools, and other valuable information about working for Saudi Aramco and living in Saudi Arabia.

If your orientation is in Houston, ASC provides the candidate and spouse with advanced roundtrip airfare and hotel reservations. Meals and certain miscellaneous expenses are covered in lump sum at the time of interview to assure that a candidate's out-of-pocket expense is minimal.


Upon Saudi Aramco's authorization, ASC will extend a written, conditional offer of employment. This offer specifies the conditions that must be met by the candidate for employment to take place and outlines the compensation package being offered.

Conditions of Employment

The conditions that must be satisfied for employment to commence include: undergoing a medical examination and background investigation, obtaining confirmation from Saudi Aramco that housing is available, the dependent children must be accepted to Saudi Aramco Expatriate Schools (SAES), as applicable, and the candidate must be able to secure a visa to work and reside in Saudi Arabia from the Saudi Arabian government. There may be other special conditions for specific jobs, such as aircraft pilots.

Relocation Processing

After offer acceptance, the candidate is assigned a Relocation Advisor to assist in meeting processing requirements. During this period, the candidate must clear the conditions of employment. Your advisor will give you instructions on shipping your personal effects to Saudi Arabia and will advise on when you can give notice to your current employer.
