Dubai: Salalah Rotana Resort continues to expand its team of professionals with a growing number of Omani nationals through the 'Duroob' programme, which aims to increase the rate of Omanisation at the resort.
The breathtaking resort on the sandy white shores of the renowned Salalah Beach boasts of 400 rooms and suites with unrivalled facilities for children and decadent restaurant outlets serviced by a dedicated family of professionals unmatched in their warm Omani hospitality.
"We have put more initiatives in place to increase the search and recruitment of Omani citizens.
Working in Salalah shares similarities with working in the GCC region and the government encourages employing at least a certain minimum number of citizens. The Omani government assists us by designating citizens for certain specialised positions within various organisations including Salalah Rotana Resort," said Claudio Melli, general manager of Salalah Rotana Resort.
He went on to say: "The 'Duroob' programme has been developed by Rotana for all its hotels across the Gulf countries. Oman is overflowing with talent and we are proud to offer Omani citizens opportunities to prosper and grow, which confirms Salalah Rotana Resort's commitment towards Omanisation and the great attention we offer our team to ensure they contribute significantly to enhancing the positioning of the hotel."
In addition to being a fast track development programme to drive the local talent towards fast growth in the hospitality industry, the 'Duroob' programme addresses unemployment among citizens by bridging the gap between local and foreign workers in the labour market. This programme is instrumental in helping young nationals secure jobs by providing them with the necessary training and work experience.
Many programmes have been undertaken to encourage recruiting even more Omani citizens, including fruitful collaborations with the Ministry of Manpower. The Omani government assists in providing the resort's HR team with potential candidates for consideration and interview. While the resort's recruitment representatives actively participate in hosting Ministry of Manpower's recruitment days.
