The Diriyah Gate Development Authority is rolling out a one-year specialized engineers development program aimed at attracting talented Saudi engineers of the future as part of its mission to invest in personal growth in the Kingdom.
Abdullah Al-Othman, chief human capital officer at DGDA, said: “Our employees are our greatest asset and they are the change-makers within DGDA. Investing in them is our core mission. We want to create real, tangible success stories among our talented young Saudis.
“This engineers development program will be the cornerstone for realizing that mission by providing qualified and talented Saudis with not only entry-level jobs but also long-term careers with purpose. The program equips them to be real agents of change in multiple engineering fields, providing them with the best on-the-job training, coaching and immersion programs.”
We encourage fresh engineering graduates across the country to enroll in the DGDA engineers' development program (https://www.research.net/r/CBK2HPQ). When the registration closes later this year there will be an intensive selection process and assessments to ensure the selection of top talents.
Successful applicants will have an opportunity to participate in development work at Saudi Arabia’s Diriyah project.
The graduates will be distributed among three program tracks to develop their skills, knowledge and expertise, which include programs with DGDA’s design and development, urban planning and municipal affairs, and asset management divisions.
DGDA will partner with top institutes to deliver training courses that include toolkits on approaching communications, project management, innovation and strategy across Diriyah’s engineering projects alongside design, health and safety, inspection, construction supervision and licensing workshops.
Linah Alhabeeb, human capital development director at DGDA, said: “The DGDA engineering program is an exciting opportunity for young engineering graduates to participate in a project so close to the heart of all Saudis.”
She said that “the program will look to attract the brightest minds across the country aiming to train and develop their skills, interests and expertise across a multitude of engineering sectors in one of the ‘Best Places to Work in Saudi Arabia and Asia’.
“At DGDA, we want to bring talent, innovation and skills to the forefront of our work. As the ‘Jewel of the Kingdom,’ Diriyah strives to nurture excellence, promote young Saudis, and reflect on our rich heritage through the wonders of At-Turaif. We welcome Saudi engineers from across the Kingdom to participate in this exciting program,” Alhabeeb said.
