Mar 27, 2018
As part of its commitment to support the nation’s drive for providing career opportunities for Omani youth, Shell Oman Marketing Company continued its annual tradition of hosting a stall at the Career and Training Opportunities Fair at Sultan Qaboos University (SQU). In its 19th addition, the three-day exhibition was organized by the SQU Career Guidance Centre under the auspices of Dr. Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Saeedi, Minister of Health. The fair aimed to provide employment and training opportunities for tertiary education students and jobseekers from the Sultanate; and to help prepare them for their future careers.
Shell Oman’s stand attracted a large number of students and young job seekers throughout the 3 days of the fair; and gave Shell Oman employees the opportunity to interact and network with Omani students from various local and international universities and colleges. The team focused on sharing their experiences and knowledge with students while helping create awareness about the different career and training opportunities at Shell Oman. Students were also invited to apply online on the Shell Oman website for opportunities that will be available in the coming months.
Essam Ali Al Busaidi, Human Resources and Administration Manager at Shell Oman, elucidated: “Shell Oman has always been committed to providing opportunities for the Omani youth; and our participation in the SQU Career Fair each year is testament to this. It is noteworthy that with approximately 90 percent Omanization, Shell Oman is a role-model for successful and sustainable local talent development and In-Country Value (ICV) practices.”
For nearly 60 years, Shell Oman has been committed to meeting the sultanate’s growing energy demands and contributing to its prosperity in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner, by operating safely and sharing benefits with the local community.
