Shell Oman’s Aviation Growth Leads to Sustainable Jobs Creation
Feb 14, 2018
Shell Oman reinforces its commitment to provide job opportunities for Omani youth, and hires 15 Omani job seekers to support its growth in Shell Aviation business, with 6 female talents breaking into the industry.
In line with the nation’s efforts to create employment opportunities for the Omani youth - where Shell Oman has been demonstrating its commitment to this strategy with its outstanding Omanization rate of approximately 90%, including the executive management team, the Company started the year with employing 15 new Omani talents within its Aviation business in various operational, administrational and field roles. These new employment opportunities were backed by the Company’s success in accelerating its growth across various classes of businesses. Moreover, the recent signing of agreement for operating the fuel farm facilities at the new Muscat International Airport has played a significant role in creating these opportunities.
Essam Al Busaidi, HR & Admin Manager, commented: “Shell Oman is known for its outstanding commitment to local talent development, Omanization policy, and diversity and inclusiveness, which have been remarkably showcased this time with 6 talented young Omani women joining the Aviation business in Muscat.” He added, “This success is even more meaningful given that, traditionally speaking, the aviation refueling industry has not been a magnet for female talents.”
Hafidh Al Ismaili, Aviation, Marine and Bitumen Country Manager at Shell Oman commented: “Shell Oman is determined to stay on course with continuously creating value for Oman, and supporting national agenda to diversify the economy in the future where logistics and tourism sectors are expected to be significant contributors to the GDP. I would like to welcome and congratulate our new colleagues; and we look forward to working with them to achieve growth while contributing to the national economy.”
Worth mentioning that Shell Oman is led by a competent Omani caliber of talents comprising the executive management team, and approximately 90% Omanisation across the different levels of the organization; which demonstrates Shell Oman as a role model for successful and sustainable local talent development and In-Country Value (ICV).
