Muscat: Oman’s National Employment Centre (NEC) has announced 2,020 vacancies to mark the arrival of the New Year.
The move is part of the centre’s objectives of providing more jobs to local job seekers, and will coordinate with other economic sectors to generate employment opportunities. In addition, it will liaise with the relevant government institutions and monitor the efforts of the private sector towards meeting the Omanisation percentages.
The centre will also identify those areas of experience in which job seekers and employees need training to improve the quality of work at their place of employment.
A statement issued by the NEC said, “With the start of operations of the National Employment Centre, we are pleased to announce the 2,020 job opportunities. Know that the application for these opportunities starts from 12:00 am.”
The NEC emphasised the importance of involving all segments of society, to facilitate the access to the visually impaired for the visual content published in the account, and to follow the news and developments of the centre and the job opportunities that are announced.
The next steps to enhance the effectiveness of the National Employment Centre include, “January 1, 2020, starting the operations of the centre, gaining the legal status of the centre in light of the validity of the Royal Decree through coordination with economic sectors, integration with the relevant authorities and follow-up of the private sector institutions in adhering to the rates of Omanisation.”
