We’re betting on local hiring for ACCIONA’s expansion in Brazil

Brazil is a strategic country that holds a number of business opportunities for our main Divisions dedicated to energy, infrastructure and water. From the outset of our activities in the country, back in 1996, we’ve made a fivefold increase in local hiring, the business portfolio has increased twelve-fold and our local workforce has tripled. These are just a few of our main projects in Brazil, most of which belong to our infrastructures arm:

• Design and construction of the outer seawalls of the shipyard at the port of Açu (São João da Barra, Rio de Janeiro).
• The construction of Banco Santander’s LatAm Data Processing Center, in Campinas (São Paulo).
• The Design, Build, Finance and Operation concession for the BR 393 toll road, a 200km roadway that runs between the states of Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro).

Our team fosters the values of environmental respect and social responsibility; together with our innovative and pioneering vision, they enable us to help society grow and develop. We are looking for qualified people with a similar outlook and we’re betting on hiring people from where the projects are located and the surrounding area. This way, we aim to help create jobs in the region. If you’re interested in working at ACCIONA, take a look at the vacancies available and send us your CV through our Employment Channel.

Committed to jobs for the differently-abled

ACCIONA is firmly committed to equal opportunities in every sense of the term and the Company has a range of programs, internal procedures and measures in place to ensure a discrimination-free working environment that encourages and nurtures diversity. Thanks to the “Inserta” agreement signed in 2007 along with Spain’s Fundación ONCE (recently renewed), ACCIONA will be hiring a total 350 differently-abled people over the next four years. In 2012, 65 differently-abled people have joined the Company. In fact, ACCIONA’s commitment to ensure that differently-abled people make up 3% of the workforce through direct employment or alternative means is now formally part of the Company’s strategic objectives.
