Over 3,400 Apply for Final Jobs at Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre

Following its third and final international recruitment drive for the year 2015, the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) says it received over 3,400 applications its largest response to date.

The aim of the drive was to fill almost 50 employment opportunities in various fields such as events, operations and food and beverage.

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, said Trevor McCartney, the OCEC General Manager. 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 next 15 years the OCEC and its surrounding precinct will be responsible for the creation of up to 24,000 direct and indirect jobs, contributing up to OMR 240 million to the national economy.

It is also expected that the OCEC will spur the creation and growth of Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) with design and print, transportation, food and beverage, event management, security and IT services directed towards Omani businesses.
