State-owned Syrian companies are hiring hundreds of employees in the gas, electricity and technical infrastructure industries, state media announced Friday, weeks after President Bashar Assad said post-war reconstruction was a priority.
The country's seven-year conflict has devastated its economy, but as fighting winds down in many areas, the government and its allies appear to be ramping up efforts to rebuild.
On Friday, Syrian state television announced government-owned companies were looking to take on more than 850 new hires.
They included 97 positions at the Mhardeh hydroelectric power station, which lies in the country's central Hama province and saw fierce clashes in 2016.
Damacable, which sells electric wires, had 89 new positions open.
The Syrian Gas Company is hiring 175 people in the central province of Homs, as well as Hasakeh in the northeast, and Deir al-Zor in the east.
The biggest hiring spree, according to state television, was for the agriculture directorate in Hassakeh, which was looking for 209 new employees.
The remaining open positions included technicians, medical staff and agriculture workers in the southern provinces of Swaida and Deraa, where the army recently waged a fierce military assault to oust rebels.
The Ministry of Information is also hiring more than 120 people.
Many of the open positions are in areas recaptured by government troops in recent months, like Deraa, or in provinces where the regime shares control with rival Kurdish forces, including Hassakeh and Deir al-Zor.
