We offer:

  • Saudi Aramco Incentive Plan (SAIP): This is a broad-based annual and performance based incentive plan.

The objective of this plan is to drive organizational performance, as well as, recognize and reward your contributions beyond the normal annual merit increases.
  • Annual repatriation travel allowance: This is an annual cash payment that more than covers airfare costs to your home country. You have full flexibility to use this payment in any way you choose.
  • Annual vacation: You can look forward to up to 38 calendar days of paid leave each year. In addition, you’ll typically be granted between 9 and 11 days of national public holidays each year.
  • Severance award: In accordance with the Saudi labor law, a severance award is payable by the company to employees who leave after 2 years or more of satisfactory service. The severance award is based on length of continuous service and final base pay. The severance award can be a substantial benefit for longer service employees.
  • Education Assistance Plan: If you are hired on family status, you may be eligible to benefit from the company’s excellent education assistance plan for dependent children.
