Clonmel-based builder Sepam is looking to recruit 200 staff here after winning a contract to build Saudi Arabia's biggest petro chemicals plant.

HR, finance and marketing staff are needed for the project in addition to the main engineering and construction roles that need to be filled for the giant project.

The new hires are needed after Sepam won contracts for construction of a world-class integrated chemicals complex in Jubail Industrial City in Saudi Arabia.

The massive project will be the largest single-phase petrochemical development in the world and is due for completion in 2016.

The Irish company successfully tendered to provide engineering, procurement and construction management services.

The 200 staff now being recruited are in addition to SEPAM's current staff of 3,500 around the world.

The company, founded by chairman Gus Kearney, is currently working on sites ranging from London's Heathrow Airport and the Mayo Clinic in the US, to rail and education schemes in Saudi Arabia and infrastructure in Doha, Qatar ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

"Sepam is delighted to be working on this ground-breaking project and we are actively seeking two hundred or more Irish professionals who are looking to expand their horizons and gain valuable experience abroad," said Sepam strategic business unit director Andrew Kearney.
