High in demand, Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) has welcomed more than 3,400 applications following its third and very last international recruitment drive.
OCEC’s aim is to fill almost 50 employment opportunities spanning the events, operation and F&B fields.
General manager, OCEC, Trevor McCartney remarked: “The response to this third recruitment drive has been impressive, not just in terms of the interest it has generated and the number of applicants it has produced, but also in terms of the quality of the applications we have received.”
“While job creation for Omani nationals is a priority for the OCEC, all appointments will be made on individual merit and successful applicants will have the satisfaction of knowing they have earned their position in the face of tough international competition.”
Over the coming 15 years the OCEC and its surrounding precinct is expected to create up to 24,000 direct and indirect jobs, contributing up to $623 million to the national economy. Adding to this, it is forecasted that OCEC will spur the creation and growth of SMEs with design and print, transportation, F&B, event management, security and IT services directed towards Omani businesses.
