RAWEC ensures that it pursues the right strategy in attracting, employing, developing, and retaining quality Saudi nationals as company employees.

Saudization in RAWEC is considered a vitally essential internal program. Indeed, Saudization is our corporate initiative that purposefully caters to long-term organizational stability. Given its long-term agreement as utilities provider for Petro Rabigh, RAWEC is devoted to developing and maintain a quality and relevant Saudi national employment strategy.

Professional Development Plan (PDP) Program

Our Professional Development Program or “PDP” attracts highly talented, young Saudi graduates. The program is not only designed to develop primarily engineering graduates in operations and maintenance of power and water systems but also prepare trainees for leadership roles in the organization. It is a mix of classroom training, on the job training, project assignments, soft skills development, and leadership exposure. The program extends over a period of two years in various departments and functions in both RPC & RAWEC.

Apprenticeship Program

As a strategic source of future technical personnel, RAWEC is continually recruiting and sponsoring high school graduates (apprentices) who undergo a two-year program at a vocational training center in water and power technology (HIWPT).

From a stringent screening of qualified high school local & diploma graduates, RAWEC supports and develops the selected apprentices into becoming highly skilled power plant personnel and thereby, providing them with fruitful and challenging career opportunities in the future. Specifically, after completing the 2-Year curriculum, the apprentices undergo another six-month of On-The-Job (OJT) program to further intensify their readiness to assume appropriate roles in the IWSPP. The OJT program is another structured internal work certification program that provides them the necessary information on plant fundamentals to equip them to become highly competent personnel in operating and maintaining the plant.
