Qatar Chemical Company Ltd (Q-Chem) organised its Qatarisation ‘Open Day’ from September 16-18 at its headquarters in Doha.
“The Q-Chem ‘Open Day’ is an annual event intended to attract and recruit more Qatari talents.
“It is part of company’s commitment to the development of nationals and to reach out to the community to achieve sustainable development, which is in line with Qatar National Vision 2030,” the company said in a statement.
The ‘Open Day’ “enhances Q-Chem’s position as the preferred employer in the country”, the statement noted.
Successful candidates will have an opportunity “to have a fulfilling career in one of Qatar’s top companies” in the sector, the statement pointed out.
They will be part of “a dynamic team of professionals who pursue a common goal and contribute to their growth, professional development and integrity”.
Many young Qataris turned out to attend the three-day event, running from 8am- 2pm.
Nasser Jeham al-Kuwari, CEO of Q-Chem, said: “Q-Chem Open Day offers yet another opportunity to attract more Qataris to join one of the vibrant organisations in the country.
“Over the years, our Qatarisation rate has increased and our efforts were recognised last year with the Qatarisation Award (Best Qatarisation Progress) in the Energy and Industry Sector.
“Qataris have an opportunity to work in one of the three Q-Chem-operated facilities — in Mesaieed, Ras Laffan and at the company’s headquarters in Doha.
“Since its inception, Qataris have been able to progress towards the company’s leadership ranks.
“Today, 41% of key positions in Q-Chem are held by Qataris who joined through our Qatarisation programmes.”
Q-Chem offers its employees “an exciting, challenging and rewarding work experience with competitive benefits”, the statement added.
The company also offers training and continuous development programmes, including individual development plans, providing them with a roadmap for progressing within the company.
Q-Chem recruits, develop and retrains highly competent nationals through its special programme, Total Quality Qatarisation (TQQ). The TQQ is strongly linked to individual performance and proven competencies that relate to meeting operational requirements and organisational success.
Through this initiative, Q-Chem offers a wide range of capacity-building programmes to prepare, attract and develop Qatari nationals.
It also fosters young Qataris so that they can benefit from the initiative.
