MoM working closely with private sector to offer job opportunities to nationals
The Ministry of Manpower (MoM) is making great efforts to create job opportunities for the national manpower in various sectors. It is also doing its best to ensure that Omanis are provided with incentives that help them accept the offered job opportunities and settle at work.
MoM also maintains regular communication and coordination with the private sector organisations to create job opportunities for the Omani youth by announcing the vacancies in private sector organisations through different media channels.
In December, a number of private sector companies offered more than 400 job opportunities to Omanis. MoM has already started interviews with 4,298 job seekers who were called for interviews. The move comes within the efforts made by the government to create job opportunities for Omanis in different fields and specialisations.
As part of the cooperation and coordination between MoM and various private sector organisations to create job opportunities for job seekers at various specialisations, a number of private sector organisations also announced more than 60 job opportunities.
Next week, MoM will call a number of jobseekers and will meet a number of private sector companies to create fresh job opportunities.
The statistics of the Public Authority for Manpower Register pointed out that the number of active job seekers at the end of November 2018 stood at 45,711 most of them between 25 and 29 years old. In terms of educational qualifications, the number of job seekers below the general education diploma stood at 5,204, compared to 12,782 at the level of general education diploma and equivalent, 8,625 holders of university diploma level, 18,981 at the university level, 113 holders of Master’s and six at the PhD level.
The ministry also cooperates with the Public Authority for Manpower Register in publishing weekly supplements about job opportunities. As of December 2018, 2,647 supplements were published for 7,099 jobs. The ministry also published 45 supplements for interviews. It also called 114,709 people for interviews for 12,847 job opportunities.
