Here is my time line for a corporate office role at Aramco.
I am from the UK but I already work and live in Saudi Arabia with an Iqama. Therefore, this thread will be useful for anyone going through a similar process, especially since the law change that allows employees in KSA to change jobs without permission from their current sponsor.
I originally applied in March.
May 24: invited for interview by an Aramco recruiter by email May 27: online live interview on HireVue with a panel June 2: I was informed by email by the recruiter that they want to take the process forward and was asked to submit payslips June 7: I provided all my payslips, QR application form, education certificates and passport copies. As I already work in KSA my education certificates are already attested by the Saudi embassy in the UK. June 15: On following up, the recruiter told me that their role in the process is complete and that I will be contacted by another recruiter 'maybe in a month+ time' by email or phone. September 7: I got a phone call where a recruiter said that I needed to provide a no objection certificate from my current employer in order to get the offer. I explained that under the recent change to the law I can move employers in KSA without permission so no need for this. September 8: I got an email mentioning that they would like to speak to me about an offer and to give my availability. September 9: I received the phone call and during the call the written offer was sent to me and I was talked through the details. After the call I signed and sent back the offer. Next steps are to await contact from the relocation adviser.
September 13: I received the email request to complete the BI form, health questionnaires and provide supporting documents. The BI from mentions a police clearance for employment in Gulf countries but my contact confirms when asked that I don't need to provide a KSA police clearance as I am already in the country. September 15: I have sent back all of the requested documents. This is the BI form, health questionnaires plus copies of ideny documents, educations certificates (as I am already working in KSA I provided the Saudi MOFA attested copies that I have), university transcript, signed CV, UK national insurance card and marriage certificate.
