Government Employment

With the aim of realising Bahrain Economic Vision 2030 and encouraging sustainable development, the Kingdom has a development plan in place to raise the standards of the public sector, including all its employees. A National Leadership Development Program was launched with the specific objective of meeting the training requirements of public sector employees, starting from the moment they begin their employment. It guides their career progression through administrative and executive positions, all the way up to senior leadership levels on the government’s career ladder.

Government employment falls under 4 categories as defined by the regulations of Civil Service Law No. (48) of 2010 (PDF, 332KB, 18 Pages, Arabic Only):
