Why Averda's staff numbers increased in 2018
The hiring spree was inspired by several new contracts that the firm was involved in over the last 12 months
Environment and waste management specialists Averda had a major increase in its staff numbers globally – from 10,171 labourers in 2017 to 13,331 in 2018.
The hiring spree was inspired by several new contracts that the firm was involved in over the last 12 months.
In 2018 Averda began work on the Muhail Assir, Royal Commision of Jubail, Jeddah Khouzam and the Riyadh Airport.
In the coming year, Averda will be involved in Al-Jawf Municipality City Cleaning (Qatif, KSA) — waste collection, sweeping, sorting and disposal in the municipal areas; Muscat Collect Project (Lot1) — waste collection, sorting and disposal in the municipal areas of Oman’s capital; and Tangier Treatment — waste collection, sorting, disposal and sustainable treatment in the municipal areas of Tangier in Morocco.
The firm managed to hold its 20% year-on-year increase in revenue for 2018 with CEO Malek Sukkar confident of maintaining that figure for 2019.
