Highly skilled engineers in Greece are being targeted by acclaimed multi-national design and engineering consultancy, Hyder Consulting, in a major recruitment drive for experienced site engineers to join its team in Doha, Qatar.
Latest statistics reveal that Greek unemployment levels rose to an astonishing 27.6 per cent in May, at more than twice the Eurozone average of 12.1 per cent. The opportunity currently available through Hyder Consulting could offer welcome relief to private sector workers who are expected to face further cuts, as austerity measures cause thousands of businesses to close.

Greek engineers will be recruited to work with the National Public Works Authority `Ashghal` on major roads and drainage projects in the Qatari capital. It is the largest contract ever to be won by the renowned firm, Hyder Consulting.

Recently awarded the right to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, The State of Qatar has experienced rapid economic growth over the last several years and this has resulted in increased demand to construct and provide first-class infrastructure.

This five-year project will see Hyder responsible for undertaking all the consultancy and engineering services (for the north area of Doha) with regard to local roads and drainage projects, including the upgrading of existing substandard or temporary local roads and infrastructure and constructing new roads and infrastructure for planned new developments throughout the State of Qatar.

The company aims to recruit a number of passionate skilled engineers in order to build an even stronger workforce for this high profile infrastructure project. Recruits will be working on a variety of activities including; data collection, planning, liaising with stakeholders and contractors, design, tender preparation, construction procurement and supervision, and post contract quantity surveying services.

Hyder’s John Spiers, Technical Director for Hyder and Client Relationship Director for Transport in the Middle East, comments: “Qatar has an excellent reputation for its skilled engineering workforce and we encourage interested experienced applicants to apply immediately.
“Successful candidates will travel overseas to experience an exciting new lifestyle for the duration of the project whilst also having the chance to work on iconic international projects, and help Doha prepare its infrastructure ahead of major international events, such as the FIFA World Cup. Recruits will also be working amongst some of the most highly skilled engineering professionals in the world.”

Hyder employs 4,000 people in offices across the globe and has an enviable reputation for its commitment to ensuring high levels of employee engagement, many development opportunities and providing greater career security to its talented engineering workforce.

Hyder’s Group Human Resources & Communications Director, Misti Melville, expands: “Hyder is proud to have worked on some truly iconic and important infrastructure projects around the world, including the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa in Dubai; Sydney Harbour Bridge; Hong Kong Greening masterplan, the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, and the historic Tower Bridge in the United Kingdom. The Ashghal contract will match these in scale.

“Hyder requires the very best skilled engineers to ensure this leading infrastructure project reaches its full potential. We are therefore embarking on a major international recruitment drive to attract the very best site engineers to join our on-site team in Qatar.

“In addition to working alongside esteemed colleagues on a prestigious project, employees will receive the very best travel and relocation support, opportunities for career progression and a range of other benefits.”
