Haya Water has announced the creation of 100 new jobs for Omani nationals as the company responds positively to the Royal Decree from His Majesty for the creation of 50,000 new jobs for Omanis across the nation.
The company is now providing talented and enthusiastic young Omanis with the opportunity to develop and pursue rewarding, challenging and stimulating long-term careers with one of the nations’ most dynamic and fastest growing business organisations.
They will now have the opportunity to help Haya Water in their development of its world class water reuse project in the Muscat Governorate that will ensure significant long term health and environmental benefits to individuals, businesses and society at large.
Applications for the 100 jobs at Haya Water were heavily oversubscribed and the successful candidates went through a rigorous testing and interview process managed by Haya Water’s Human Resources Department with the supervision of the Ministry of Manpower.
Commenting on the recruitment initiative, Haya Water’s HR Manager Ibrahim Al-Sulaimani said: “We are very proud to be announcing these new jobs and additional staff to Haya Water that comprises 92 full time and 8 part time roles with the company that give 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.
“From the interviews and discussions we have had with our new employees they are all ready to play their part in helping us to achieve our objective of making Muscat a better city.”
He also explained that the recruitment was also 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, Haya Water 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 has covered training in higher management techniques, health and safety, customer service and corporate communications among others.
The new staff will also help to reinforce Haya Water’s reputation as having what is considered the highest percentage of Omanisation in the industrial sector within the Sultanate. 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 coming few years.
Haya Water’s massive water reuse project is now well underway and will be the biggest infrastructure development of its kind and complexity ever seen in the Gulf region and one of the single largest construction and development projects ever undertaken in the Sultanate.
Thousands of kilometres of pipeline has already been laid to connect homes and businesses to the new network that will replace the old, smelly and inefficient 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.
The company meanwhile has been committed since the outset to ensuring that it has incorporated the most advanced and sophisticated sewage treatment technology into its project that will transform Muscat and help make it a better city for now and in the future.
