security companies in Kuwait provide protection of persons, properties, and information. The State of Kuwait is a smaller country in GCC (gulf coöperation council). Its economy is still highly dependent on oil revenue.
Although, in the last 5yrs, entrepreneurship has emerged in the private sectors the country still struggles to diversify its economy from fossil fuel to services and industries.
Due to the privatization of the economy, Kuwait has attracted foreign direct investment (FDI) not only in its oil exploration and refinery but also in the commercialization and service sectors.
When the private sector developed to an industrial level, industries seek safety and security for their properties and investments. This is the primary reason for the growth of private security companies in Kuwait.
Even though it is a smaller country with a population of 4.6million, 70% are expatriates as the workers, residents, and business community.
As I always talk about the security industries’ development in Gulf countries, Kuwait makes up second place after UAE in terms of security regulation and pays for security professionals.
Here are some key reasons why people choose to work as security guards in Kuwait after unsuccessfully trying on UAE security companies.
3. Why work as a security guard in Kuwait?
