averda announces major recruitment drive after winning new five-year contract in Muharraq and Manama
Waste management provider, averda, has announced the launch of a recruitment drive for up to 1,000 employees in Bahrain.
The company said in a statement that the initiative is in advance of the start of the company's contract from July for a five year agreement to supply waste management services for Muharraq and Manama, which was signed with the Ministry of Works, Municipalities and Urban Planning in December.
averda said it is holding several recruiting days for management and supervisory roles starting next month.
It added that the roles will cover a wide range of activities, including warehouse, human resources, procurement, accounting, technical and operations.
In addition, averda will also be recruiting locally for drivers, administrators, mechanics and manual labourers.
Philippa Charlton, averda's marketing director, said: "As a company we have always championed local employment and in line with this approach, we will particularly welcome applications from Bahraini nationals for these roles.
"We are also keen to give priority to employees of the current waste provider. We take great pride in our work and want to make sure that Muharraq and Manama receive the highest quality waste management services.
"Part of that is ensuring that we have employees who have the right skill-sets and are committed to the community. This is a very exciting contract for averda and we are very much looking forward to taking this forward to benefit the people of Bahrain."
