Engineering, procurement and construction company, Bechtel, has launched a new graduate recruitment programme with the Riyadh College of Technology (RCT) in Saudi Arabia.
Through the joint initiative, Bechtel will train and subsequently hire 75 RCT students who are pursuing careers in civil engineering, architecture, or survey technology.
The first group of students will start the three-month training programme in March 2017, which will include work experience at a Bechtel project in Saudi Arabia.
Abdulrahman Al-Ghabban, Bechtel’s deputy country manager, said: “Bechtel’s partnership with the Riyadh College of Technology shows our commitment to the community and to improving workers’ skills in Saudi Arabia. Together we are creating better career opportunities, quality infrastructure and economic growth.”
Dr Abdulrahman Al-Ghanim, dean of the Riyadh College of Technology, said: “We are delighted to have partnered with Bechtel on this unique program, which will see 75 graduates receive practical training, develop and improve their professional skills and then be hired by Bechtel, one of the world’s leading engineering and construction companies. Our ambition is to see our students contributing towards Saudi Arabia’s 2030 vision. Developing their skills and careers at this prestigious company will help them to achieve this success.”
Bechtel has worked in Saudi Arabia for more than 70 years, developing megaprojects, from large oil and gas facilities to airports and other critical infrastructure.
The company is currently working on lines 1 and 2 of the six-line Riyadh Metro and providing programme management services at Jubail Industrial City, the largest civil engineering project in the world.
