Shell Oman’s aviation growth leads to sustainable job creation

Muscat - 

Shell Oman has reinforced its commitment to provide job opportunities for Omani youth, and hired 15 Omani job seekers to support its growth in the Shell Aviation business, with six women talents breaking into the industry.

In line with the sultanate’s efforts to create employment opportunities for the Omani youth, Shell Oman has been demonstrating commitment to its strategy of having an outstanding Omanisation rate of approximately 90 per cent, including the executive management team.

The company has started the year with employing 15 new Omani talents within its aviation business, in various operational, administrational and field roles.

According to a press release, these new employment opportunities are backed by the company’s success in accelerating its growth across various classes of businesses. The recent signing of an agreement for operating fuel farm facilities at the new Muscat International Airport has played a significant role in creating these opportunities.

Essam al Busaidi, HR and admin manager said: “Shell Oman is known for its outstanding commitment to local talent development, Omanisation policy, and diversity and inclusiveness, which have been remarkably showcased this time with six talented young Omani women joining the Aviation business in Muscat.”

Hafidh al Ismaili, aviation, marine and bitumen country manager at Shell Oman said: “Shell Oman is determined to stay on course with continuously creating value for Oman, and supporting the 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.”

Shell Oman is led by a competent Omani calibre of talents comprising the executive management team. Being able to achieve approximately 90 per cent Omanisation across the different levels of the organisation, makes Shell Oman a role model of successful and sustainable local talent development and in-country value (ICV).
