NextOp and Bechtel Forge Partnership to Support Veteran Employment

HOUSTON, TX (June 4, 2024)—NextOp is partnering with Bechtel, an engineering, procurement, construction, and project management company, to bolster veteran hiring initiatives and provide meaningful employment opportunities for individuals who have served their country.

Through this strategic partnership, Bechtel will engage with NextOp to streamline the veteran hiring process to ensure that qualified candidates have access to career opportunities within the company.

“Bechtel recognizes the unique skills, experiences, and leadership qualities that veterans bring to the table and is committed to supporting their transition into civilian roles,” said Maurissa Douglas Rogers, Manager of Functions – Bechtel Energy. “We are committed to investing in people and creating rewarding career opportunities. Our partnership with NextOp takes this to the next level as we ramp up the resources required to attract, train, and retain veterans in the construction industry.”

As part of the partnership, Bechtel will work closely with NextOp to identify potential job openings and assist service members with navigating the application process. Bechtel will gain access to NextOp’s highly diverse and skilled veteran talent pool and have opportunities to attend military recruitment events on bases. By working directly with NextOp to establish their requirements and participate in activities that lead to hiring, employers can grow their workforce with talented, skilled, dedicated workers and improve career opportunities for transitioning military and veteran job seekers.

“Bechtel plays a critical role in some of the most significant construction projects worldwide, spanning from infrastructure development to energy solutions. These projects demand a highly skilled workforce capable of tackling complex challenges and delivering exceptional results,” said Shelby Mounts, NextOp Executive Director. “This partnership demonstrates Bechtel’s commitment to supporting veterans and recognizes the value and skills service members bring to their workforce and culture.”
