Middle East Jobs

The Middle East is enriched with natural resources and is responsible the exportation of half the world’s oil. Orion Group recognises its immense importance in the market and has five dedicated offices in the region in order to best serve our candidates and clients. There are a huge number of jobs available in the region in countries such as Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E.. Opportunities are available in the office and commercial and oil and gas markets for both contract and permanent roles. Candidates that relocate to the area can expect a high level of personal service thanks to our well-placed offices. Vacancies for consultants, engineers, technicians, supervisors, construction heads and functional planners are all currently on offer.

The entire region is home to a number of large-scale operations – typically in the oil and gas industry. We have many jobs for global companies working on projects. One example is a huge oil field expansion in Rumaila, as well as West Qurna (Iraq), whilst another is the redevelopment of oil fields in Oman. These are long-term projects and so permanent contracts are available. Alternatively, contracted work is possible, particularly for roles such as drilling mentors, and offshore supervisors.

Strong experience is necessary for most vacancies, whilst appreciation of Middle East culture and working life is beneficial.
