Olive Group was one of the first companies to enter Iraq in 2003 and has since operated in the Iraqi market as a fully registered and licensed entity – Al Zaitoon. Constellis Commercial is a leading provider of security solutions across the country and has acquired extensive expertise in supporting projects on behalf of governments, international corporations and NGOs.

The company has regional offices in three key cities – Baghdad, Basrah, and Erbil. Our Iraqi businesses have appointed Iraqi Directors, and typically maintain a current workforce of over 3,000 Iraqi personnel, with our contracts employing 90% Iraqi personnel. Martin Rudd is committed to the ‘Iraq First’ initiative which not only looks to procure from Iraqi suppliers as a primary source, but also mentors Iraqi staff.

We are committed to operating safely and with proper Governance and Controls exercised through internal Quality Management Systems. Following a rigorous audit, Olive Group became the first private security company globally to achieve accredited certification against the PSC.1 standard for private security companies in Iraq.
