Abstract

Brunei Darussalam is keen on positioning its halal industry in the South East Asian region. At present, most of local halal industry players come mainly from the food sector. Statistically, Brunei sits at the top ten and ranks eighth in both Halal Food and Halal Pharmaceutical and Cosmetics sector according to Thomson Reuters’ Global Islamic Economy Report for 2019-2020. Employment is an important aspect in the growth for any sectors and stimulates overall halal industry growth. The concern of employment of university graduates (first degree and above) remains high with about 3,000 registered active jobseekers in Brunei Darussalam. In this regard, it is vital to ensure the employability for UNISSA’s Halal Science graduates by identifying potential employment opportunities in health sectors from stakeholder perspectives through a qualitative research where semi-structured interviews were conducted. The finding of this paper determined the factors attributed for employability chance in the health sector in Brunei Darussalam.
