Emerson recruits 15 Saudis in new training programme

DAMMAM, Saudi Arabia, July 31, 2017

Emerson Automation Solutions has launched its new Beginners Integration Training (BIT) programme, recruiting 15 Saudi nationals who have recently graduated from top universities and institutes in Saudi Arabia and the US.

The recruitment and training programme, which is consistent with Emerson’s global commitment to invest in local resourcing and communities where its customers are, is planned to be conducted annually with a minimum of 15 graduates who will be hired to full-time positions with the company each year.

The newly recruited graduates will occupy technical (electronics, instrumentation, computer science, chemical and mechanical engineering) and non-technical positions (such as logistics, finance, marketing, administration, and document control).

This recruitment and training program reflects Emerson's continued commitment to invest and further economic development within the region. It is designed to support the In-Kingdom Total Value Add (IKTVA) programme by driving localization and job creation in the region through the development of local talent. Emerson’s BIT program will also aid in managing and staffing projects locally in the Kingdom, allowing faster project completions.

The training, allowing the participants to be exposed to the various operations involved with Systems and Solutions through several courses, is expected to be completed within less than a year. Performance of participants will be measured through progress reports, training examinations, and program milestone reviews.

Liam Hurley, general manager of Emerson Automation Solutions in Saudi Arabia, said: “Even after the first week, the standard set by this group of employees is very high and reaffirms our long-term vision for this program. I am very excited about Emerson’s future in Saudi Arabia having this team on-board and look forward now to seeing how the group grows and develops throughout the programme.” – TradeArabia News Service
