Strategy & management firms are struggling to retain national employees.

Saudi national talent is constantly approached by the public sector. Many firms are looking for talent with the right skill set who can fill key positions. There is also a lack of talent for pure strategy design specialists. Most of the Saudi nationals are fulfilling PMO and Strategy Planning positions.

It is easier to find Saudi national talent for senior positions.

There is a massive shortage of mid-management level talent in the Kingdom and we expect this to continue in 2019. Strategy as a career will become more popular as it is becoming an interesting field for younger Saudi nationals. The public sector is becoming less reliant on international talent and is investing in their national talent and we believe that their market will become more mature as we approach 2020. Hence, there will be significant growth in terms of job requirements and candidate abilities in both the public and the private sector.

Vision 2030 and G20 are impacting both the public and private sector in Saudi.

Vision 2030 is a catalyst for the public sector to hire more PMO strategists. Each governmental entity has a Vision Realisation Office (VRO) with strategy consultants who are constantly making sure that they are aligned with Vision 2030. With these developments, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicts that Saudi Arabia’s GDP will increase by 2.4 percent as it is becoming less dependent on oil.

Top-tier strategy firms are adopting technological innovations to advance their workflow.

With the technological advancements, we see many businesses launching remote offices and digital hubs. Organisations are looking for talent who can adapt with the tech change with the vast accumulated legacy landscape of applications and systems that must ever be maintained, nurtured and supported. We can envisage many firms investing heavily in technology to have a more sophisticated workflow, which supports the objectives of Vision 2030. A sophisticated digital infrastructure is integral to today’s advanced industrial activities. It attracts investors and enhances the fundamental competitiveness of the Kingdom’s economy.
