Zyoud underlined that the National Aid Fund is funding more than 2,000 of these contracts, and that the MoL is restructuring the program to ensure its continuation in the current and next years, Khaberni reported.

The National Employment Program intends to provide Jordanians aged 18 to 40 with 60,000 private-sector job opportunities. It is based on private sector demand in all economic sectors and activities throughout the kingdom's governorates.

The initiative provides financial incentives for six months per worker, totaling JD150.

JD130 for salary support
JD10 for social security subscription support
JD10 for transportation

Companies that sign contracts to hire program beneficiaries must be legally registered, licensed, and social security-affiliated.

Educational requirements are not required of program beneficiaries. The program is open to all Jordanians from all governorates, and applicants must submit CVs and supporting documentation confirming their competency to potential employers.

The National Employment Program is a government initiative that aligns with the Economic Modernization Vision (EMV). It seeks to encourage the private sector to generate job possibilities for Jordanian youth. Notably, 35 percent of the program's participants are women and National Aid Fund users.
