National Employment Program

In line with the National Employment Program, the Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) would like to offer you the opportunity to take part in a new scheme designed to increase the number of employment opportunities for Bahraini university graduates in the private sector and support business growth.

Under the scheme, businesses like yours will have the opportunity to recruit nominated, high performing university graduates registered with the Ministry of Labour (MLSD). Any nominated candidate from the MLSD lists will be offered free professional training and will receive wage support from the Ministry of Labour, including up to 70 percent wage support during the first year of employment with your firm.

The LMRA will postpone the issuance of the requested work permit for 21 days, during which MLSD will contact you and provide a shortlist of Bahraini candidates that best suit the job vacancy available. After the 21 days, your requested work permit will be processed automatically.

To discuss the scheme in more detail and the opportunities available to your business, the MLSD’s Employment Services Office will be in touch in due course.
