Qapco’s strategic Qatarisation target is to reach 50% with more than 1,500 job openings up for grabs for Qataris at its new petrochemical complex, said Qapco vice chairman and chief executive officer.

Dr Mohammed Yousef al-Mulla said this at Qapco’s annual Qatarisation Day celebrations. For the fourth consecutive year, Qapco rewarded top Qatari achievers during the celebration in line with its commitment to support its Qatari employees and to empower them to reach their full potential, paving the way for success in their professional careers.

This year’s celebration was held under the theme ‘Success Factors’. Qapco’s Qatarisation strategy was once again recognised for its effectiveness and innovative approach during the Energy and Industry Sector Annual Qatarisation Review and Qapco was awarded the Annual Qatarisation Crystal for supporting student scholarships by HE Dr Mohammed bin Saleh al-Sada, the Minister of Energy and Industry, and chairman and managing director of Qatar Petroleum.

“We at Qapco believe that our people are our most valuable asset, essential for our long term growth and economic success. Therefore, we do our best to develop our employees’ career path to enable them to become future leaders. At the same time, we work hard on our Qatarisation strategy, inviting talented Qatari males and females, to join one of the world’s leading petrochemical powerhouses, to accompany us on the road to success associated with our future expansion,” said al-Mulla.

“National leadership is the driving force of Qapco. Qatarisation rate reached 70% in higher management level, 31% in administrative levels and 20% in technical levels and we are targeting to reach 50% of Qatari manpower in the near future,” said Rashid Abdullah al-Sulaiti, chief administration officer.
