Jacobs in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Supporting Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 - a once in a lifetime transformation of economy and society

Riyadh office opening

Jacobs has a longstanding history in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia dating back to 1945 when we first embarked on projects in the oil, gas, and energy sectors. Over the decades, Jacobs’ focus has evolved to encompass urban planning, social infrastructure, water, transportation and ports projects across the Middle East.

Today, our team is engaged on transformative projects such as NEOM’s The Line, Red Sea International Airport and King Abdulaziz Port, all of which are set to transform the economy and society in line with Vision 2030 — Saudi Arabia’s bold plan to diversify its economy, foster innovation and create a vibrant society. By aligning our efforts with Vision 2030, we contribute to the development of sustainable communities whilst driving economic growth and social progress for the Kingdom's future generations.

“We’re proud to have been part of Saudi Arabia’s history but there is perhaps no more exciting time to be working in KSA than right now — there is so much transformation work ahead for Jacobs in the Kingdom.”

Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030

Right now, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is going through a period of unprecedented change as it seeks to transform its economy and society in line with Vision 2030 — a bold blueprint to diversify its economy, develop its infrastructure, cherish its national identity and create a better life for all Saudis.

Vision 2030 is driving an enormous amount of growth and change for the country — and is creating exciting opportunities for Jacobs. The iconic giga projects announced as part of the Vision are some of the most ambitious in the world and give us a unique chance to help transform a country and create a better future for nationals, residents and tourists.

Delivering Vision 2030

Our support to the Kingdom's Vision 2030 also extends to our joint venture with Public Investment Fund and Aramco, JASARA. 

JASARA is a professional program and construction management company for social infrastructure projects across Saudi Arabia. Through JASARA, we’re working alongside local authorities and government departments to reshape urban landscapes and improve the quality of life for residents.

Recently, we’ve been appointed alongside JASARA as a Delivery Partner on NEOM – THE LINE. As delivery partner, Jacobs and JASARA will work with NEOM, other delivery partners and key stakeholders to realize the vision for this project and deliver a lasting legacy for the people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

This project represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of something exciting and ambitious that’s pushing the boundaries of what we consider possible. If you’re looking to make a career-defining move, we invite you to join the team!
