Hyder Consulting said that skilled engineers in the Philippines are being targeted by multinational design and engineering consultancy companies to work on some of the iconic global projects.
Hyder Consulting, in a major recruitment drive, is encouraging graduates and experienced engineers to join its Global Excellence Center in Manila, which has been operating for over 10 years and currently employs around 300 people.
The latest drive follows a recent intake of engineering graduates from the country’s top universities who are embarking on an intensive workplace training program with Hyder. The graduates will potentially work on iconic global projects, including the building of the Doha Expressway and Al Ain Zoo, from the company’s Manila base.
With a promotion almost every two years since joining Hyder Consulting, structural engineer Apollo Yuwie See Co, now manages a design team that work on some of the most iconic projects around the world.
He has traveled to Qatar and Australia through work and is playing his part in creating a tender for the first metro system in Qatar. If won, the project would require a vast amount of resource and would most likely keep the office very busy for some time.
“I graduated from De La Salle University in 2003 and went to work for a local engineering firm, where I spent two years before joining Hyder Consulting,” Apollo said.
According to Apollo, the wide variety of projects that require engineering expertise means that all jobs are different, which breaks the monotony of work and makes every day unique.
“Joining a multinational company has definitely made my career more fulfilling, because the projects are of a much larger scale and they are worldwide, which makes it even more exciting,” Apollo said.
In his role as a principal engineer, Apollo manages a team of engineers and technicians working across up to three projects at a time.
