Good news for job seekers in engineering, technical and human resource segments of top notch electric railway system. The French O&M (organisation and management) firm Keolis has started recruitment of staff needed for L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad infrastructure. The company will be hiring over 2,750 persons, according to V. B. Gadgil, Managing Director of L&TMRH. Global company Keolis is the largest private sector French transport and consulting company having major presence in world class railway projects across the globe. L&T has partnered with Keolis for the management of the Rs. 16,500 crore Metro Rail project in Hyderabad.
“Our partner has already started recruitment but they are now focused on hiring senior management in HR and trainers. The pace of hiring will go up along with the progress of the work here,” Mr. Gadgil said. The current recruitment by Keolis is only limited to the staff required for the 72 km railway system. As part of the agreement, Keolis will hire and train the staff and run the railway system before handing the staff and system over to L&T. This apart, the Hyderabad Metro Rail will also need over 20,000 people to run the commercial operations once the project is completed. “Keolis has nothing to do with the recruitment related to commercial operations. We will identify another entity for that job,” said Mr. Gadgil.
