RIYADH, January 17, 2017

Bechtel, a global leader in engineering, procurement and construction, has launched a major 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, said a statement from the company.

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.

“Bechtel’s partnership with the RCT shows our commitment to the community and to improving workers’ skills in Saudi Arabia,” said Abdulrahman Al Ghabban, the deputy country manager.

“Together, we are creating better career opportunities, quality infrastructure and economic growth,” he noted.

Bechtel has worked in Saudi Arabia for more than 70 years developing mega-projects ranging from large oil and gas facilities to airports and other critical infrastructure.

It is currently busy with the lines One and Two of the six-line Riyadh Metro and providing programme management services at Jubail Industrial City, the largest civil engineering project in the world.

Dr Abdulrahman Al Ghanim, the dean of the RCT, said: "We are delighted to have partnered with Bechtel on this unique programme, 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,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
