The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) requires engineering services to provide technical assistance to the Royal Saudi Naval Forces (RSNF) to perform Standardised Pierside Maintenance and Repair (SPMR) on ships in Saudi Arabia. In particular, the SPMR Program is a repair and test program designed to enhance the reliability and performance while lowering the life cycle costs of the equipment. Their global objective is to have strategically managed SAIs leading to higher performance.
Yearly, we have provided skilled marine maintenance technicians on short term assignments in Saudi Arabia to provide maintenance support of RSNF vessels systems.
Together with our in-country sponsors, M&E plan and coordinate fully compliant solutions, including work visas, Saudi Residency Visas (Iqama), accommodation, travel and transport, that require the flexibility of variable deployment periods and very specific skill sets that are often hard to come by, particularly with respect to the specific naval work required of marine engineering jobs.
Skilled personnel in this sector are sought after and rarely short of work as a result, meaning that sourcing such highly skilled personnel for short-term assignments is no easy task. However, our experience and ability to maintaining relationships with pools of well trained and qualified personnel results in successful missions that meets all performance targets for each deployment.
Key maintenance tasks performed include the following:
Fitting and assembling parts and repairing assemblies
Defect, repair and installation of components
Electrical and mechanical maintenance and repair
Our highly responsive approach to both clients and candidates alike, along with our ability to offer complete support with respect to temporary work permits, work visas (Iqama in Saudi Arabia), sponsorship, transportation and accommodation, has proven to be a key factor to our success in this sector.
The staff at M&E have proven to be not only resourceful but also extremely supportive with work related issues.
In addition to this they also support with private challenges that one might encounter when moving to a different country. Driving is my passion, during my first 6 months working with M&E I was fortunate to progress from Movement Control Driver to Recovery Ops.
M&E Global - Heavy Equipment Mechanic Recovery Ops
Working abroad is an unbeatable experience, both personally and for career development.
When I saw the opportunity with M&E to work for the US military in Germany, I thought it sounded amazing – and I haven’t looked back since! There are plenty of opportunities for training and development for anyone who wants it. You will also learn on the job too – in fact, I’d say that I’ve learnt something new every day since I’ve been here!Life here is great. I’ve made lots of friends, both on and off base, and there are loads of opportunities to travel and explore on the weekends.

M&E Global gave me the training and opportunities to progress in my career.
What I like most about my work at M&E is the opportunities it offers me for development and the challenges and complexity of the tasks it puts in front of me. Secondly, it's great that I’m learning about working in a military environment. I emphasise learning, because the area is so vast that you will always be surprised by something new!
