Saudi Readymix Begins Recruitment Drive

Campus recruitment drive to attract local talents.

The recruitment program includes visits to King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM), King Faisal University (KFU), King Saud University (KSU) and King Abdul Aziz University (KAAU).

At the latest event, the Saudi Readymix team, which included university alumni, delivered presentations to KFUPM and KFU graduating students in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, finance and accounting and administration. Also present were the Dean of Student Affairs and other faculty members. On the next leg of its tour, the road show will continue to visit KSU and KAAU on the 16th and 21st, of April respectively on.

Company President, Rami Khalid Alturki, commented:

"To keep pace with the surge in demand in the booming construction industry, we are implementing an aggressive growth plan in all areas of our operation. To support this internally, we have implemented this graduate recruitment program to supply us with a steady stream of talented and ambitious young Saudis, who will help us realize our goals. By the end of this year for example, we aim to grow our current workforce from 1,700 employees to almost 2,100. Those graduates who choose to work with Saudi Readymix will enjoy an excellent working environment with an opportunity for hands-on learning from some of the most respected industry experts in the kingdom."

As a market leader in the concrete industry, Saudi Readymix is in the midst of unprecedented growth, largely due to the construction drive in Saudi Arabia and the wider Middle East Region. The company plans to extend its operations across the entire Kingdom, especially in the Northern and Southern provinces, by opening new plants and expanding and modernizing its current fleet.

Saudi Readymix's HR & Administration Director, Mr. Salem Al-Hajri commented: "We have a very progressive philosophy regarding the training and education of our employees aimed at raising the standards of our company and the industry as a whole. To achieve this goal, we spare no effort in developing our employees through internal and internationally accredited programs such as the Concrete Technologist City & Guilds certificate of London Institute (CGLI) in the UK. We strive to provide a bright future with us and a clear career path for all our people that goes hand-in-hand with competitive remuneration packages, employee benefits, and transparency in policies and procedures."
