Manama, Mar. 4 (BNA): Health Undersecretary Dr. Waleed Khalifa Al Manea said that the priority in recruitment is given to the Bahraini volunteer health workers based on the vacancies that are commensurate with their qualifications and experience in the health sector.
The ministry is completing the recruitment procedures according to the civil service laws and regulations for many of them based on the available vacancies, he added.
The foreign health workers who were hired during the pandemic on temporary contracts and in limited numbers to help confront the coronavirus have specializations that Bahrainis could not currently fulfill, since the current exceptional circumstances do not allow waiting until the end of their training and qualification.
The contracts of the foreign workers will not be renewed after the pandemic is over, he added.
Bahrainis remain the top permanent option, and the ministry is keen on providing them with job opportunities that are commensurate with their academic qualifications and practical experience.
