Engineers, construction specialists wanted for big worldwide projects


Skilled engineers and construction specialists in the Philippines are being targeted by a multinational design and engineering consultancy firm, Hyder Consulting, for a major recruitment drive this month. Successful candidates have the opportunity to work on worldwide projects, including the building of Qatar’s first metro system.

Hyder Consulting—which specializes in the transport, utilities, property, energy, and resources and environment sectors—will be hosting a recruitment fair in Manila on Friday, Jan. 18 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Quezon Ballroom A of the Makati Shangri-la Hotel.

Hyder Consulting’s Philippines Global Excellence Centre has been operating for more than 10 years and currently employs about 270 people.

David Burgess, Hyder Consulting director for Global Excellence Centre and shared services in Manila, says: “The Philippines has an excellent reputation for developing highly skilled engineers and construction specialists. We have grown our presence in the country significantly over the last decade and are looking to do so again with a major recruitment drive at a time when unemployment, especially among engineering and skilled workers, is high.

“We have an exciting pipeline of projects that new recruits would be working on, such as the Jeddah Municipality project, creating the new Doha Metro system, and highway and mining projects in Australia. With a base at our headquarters in the Philippines, successful candidates will have the chance to work on a range of international projects.”

Hyder Consulting employs around 4,000 people in offices around the world and has a reputation for its commitment to ensuring staff satisfaction, high staff retention rates and offering permanent rather than contractual status. The firm also provides a full training program, along with the chance to work on iconic projects.

Historically, Hyder Consulting has worked on some of truly iconic projects, such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Burj Khalifa in Dubai—the world’s tallest building, and Tower Bridge in the United Kingdom; and we have a pipeline of projects over the coming years that match these.”

    Another brain drain in exchange for some dollar inflow. A move forward for the Philippine economy.

    • foreignerph

      It’s just another form of export. They don’t have to feel guilty since they had to pay the huge college fees mostly themselves. Their brain is not national property.

      • opinyonlangpo

        You are right. Its an opportunity to move forward helping themselves, their families and the country as well.

  • foreignerph

    Go for it guys, if you’re qualified. Good engineers in Western Europe catch 8,000 euro per month (400,000 php) + company car + company smartphone in an honest way. In the Phils, the most they can get is 30,000 php if they don’t get their share of the kickbacks from the contractors. They will never look back.
