Saudi Arabia has been a hive of construction activity over the last few weeks, and the trend looks set to continue during the year ahead.

Notable projects set to take off in Saudi Arabia include the 334km2 Qiddiya entertainment city; a $5bn (SAR18.75bn) petrochemicals complex in Jubail by Saudi Aramco and Total; and a Six Flags-branded theme park, due to open in 2022

Each of these developments is set to create thousands of jobs for construction professionals across the Gulf. 

Job activity is similarly on the rise in other parts of the Middle East, such as Kuwait – where numerous billion-dollar projects are under way – and the UAE, which is said to be among the Gulf's busiest markets for hospitality developments.

BuildingMENA.com, the Middle East's only construction-specific job portal, has more than 100 jobs listed this week.
