INTERNATIONAL Middle East: Hyder hiring across Middle East
Fri, 20 Apr 2012
Engineering consultancy Hyder is looking to fill 1,000 construction jobs across its Middle East operations with qualified Irish staff. There will be a particular focus on projects in Qatar as it prepares to host the 2022 football World Cup.
A spokesperson for the firm tells Recruiter that it is keen to undertake all recruitment through its internal function.
This process – which aims to fill 400 jobs by the end of this year, and the rest within the subsequent two years – will start with a recruitment drive in Ireland, followed by Britain, Germany and then finally Eastern Europe.
The firm currently employs just under 4,000 people.
Much of the work will centre on Qatar, which is spending billions as it prepares to host the 2022 World Cup, while the Saudi Arabian authorities have already announced a $400 billion national infrastructure development plan.
Successful applicants will be required to relocate to the Middle East.
