Finding work in Qatar

Finding employment in the State of Qatar

It is always best to start with the job classifieds and appointments of the daily newspapers. From the three English daily newspapers published in Qatar that have websites, only Gulf Times includes a daily classifieds section of situations vacant with job vacancies in the form of a PDF file. When it comes to the numerous Arabic daily newspapers with online websites, only Al Wata contains a section for career vacancies at its newspaper in English.


Thru Qatar Recruitment Agencies

It is very difficult to find job vacancies in Qatar through recruitment agencies because most of them do not have websites or their websites are nowhere to be found. The only recruitment agencies which could be found was Key Resources and it doesn’t seem that their website was updated since June 2003.


Thru Government-Run Companies

  • Qatar Airways, Qatar's national airlines and sometimes mistaken as Qatar Air, has a careers section which includes job vacancies in for flight and cabin crew, vacancies in its subsidiary companies, and other positions. In order to apply, a user must download their six page application form, fill it out, and then send it back to them by email or by post.
  • Qatar Petroleum (QP), formerly known as Qatar General Petroleum Corporation (QGPC), is owned by the State of Qatar and deals in oil and gas industry. Its website normally has over 200 job vacancies and you can apply online by filling out a short form and attaching your RTF or DOC resume.
  • Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO) has a list of job vacancies required for its head office in Doha and its plant in Mesaieed. Apply to the vacancies is easy as you only need to fill out a short form and attaching your resume.
  • Qatar Liquefied Gas Company (QatarGAS) is located in the Ras Laffan Industrial City dealing in the supply of LNG. 
  • QTel is the government run telecommunication company of Qatar, which also operates, Qatar Internet, Qatar's only ISP.
  • The Hamad Medical Corporation has a list of recruitment vacancies for the healthcare / medical field.
  • Qatar Chemical Company (QChem) is petrochemical plant in Mesaieed owned by the Qatar Petroleum Corporation and Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC.
  • Qatar Electricity & Water Co. (QEWC) has a reasonable section of job vacancies in departments of production, administration, finance, and information technology (IT). The jobs can be applied to but require the filling on large form with the attachment of your CV. Qatari Kahramaa, also known as the Qatar General Electricity & Water, has a small section of jobs.
