Haya Water creates 100 jobs
Muscat, December 4, 2011
Haya Water created 100 new jobs for Omani nationals as the company responded to the royal decree from HRH Qaboos Bin Said Al Said for the creation of 50,000 new jobs for Omanis across the nation.
The company will provide talented and enthusiastic young Omanis with the opportunity to develop and pursue long-term careers with Haya Water in the development of its water reuse project in the Muscat Governorate.
Applications for the 100 jobs were heavily oversubscribed and the successful candidates went through a rigorous testing and interview process, a statement from the company said.
Ibrahim Al-Sulaimani, HR manager, Haya Water, said: “These new jobs and additional staff comprise 92 full time and 8 part time roles with the company that gives ambitious and talented Omanis a superb career opportunity.”
“The jobs we are creating are across all aspects of our business including technical and management positions. We are confident that all of these talented young people will be a real asset to Haya Water and will contribute in a major way to the continuing success of our water reuse project here in Muscat,” he said.
He also explained that the recruitment was an important step in helping Haya Water to clearly achieve its objective of becoming one of the top employers of choice for Omanis in the Sultanate.
As part of the process, the company has also been working closely with the National Training Institute to develop a special programme to enable the new recruits to have the skills they need to take on the new roles they will play within the organisation. This covered training in higher management techniques, health and safety, customer service and corporate communications.
The new staff will help to reinforce the company’s reputation as having what is considered the highest percentage of Omanisation in the industrial sector within the Sultanate, the statement said.
Currently running at over 72 per cent the new staff members will help the company to reach an expected level of about 90 per cent in the next few years.
Haya Water’s massive water reuse project is now underway and will be the biggest infrastructure development of its kind and complexity in the Gulf region and one of the single largest construction and development projects ever undertaken in the Sultanate, it said.
Thousands of kilometres of pipeline has already been laid to connect homes and businesses to the new network that will replace the old septic tank system that is currently used by most properties in Muscat.
By the end of 2011 an estimated 20 per cent of properties within Muscat Governorate will have been connected to the new system, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
