Our People


We recognize that our long-term success depends on our people, our most valuable asset. Our human capital programs aim to attract, develop, motivate and retain highly competent, dedicated and engaged employees. Our goal is to become one of the top three employers in Saudi Arabia.


Ma’aden is pioneering the modern mining industry in the Kingdom. As such, we have taken the initiative to create the educational and training infrastructure to develop a local talent pool needed for the mining sector. We are meeting the challenge head-on by partnering with national and international institutions to educate and train Saudi nationals for careers in mining.

We have made significant investments in training programs for employees to prepare a new generation of young Saudi nationals. Our current Strategic Human Capital Program includes an enhanced professional development program providing new opportunities to staff across our organization; a scholarship program in partnership with the Ministry of Education; The Saudi Mining Polytechnic in Ar’ar; and two Schools of Excellence in Ar’ar and Turaif.

The Academy’s mission is to uphold the “Ma’aden Way” – a common language we use to guide us in our work every day, it outlines how we approach everything we do and stimulates a learning culture throughout Ma’aden.
