CCED supports training of future-ready Omanis in Oil & Gas sector

As part of its strategy to empower national talent to excel in the oil and gas sector, well-known upstream energy firm CC Energy Development (CCED), has seen 95 per cent of its maintenance technicians and production team acquire the Advanced Diploma in Oil & Gas Operations from City & Guilds in the UK.

With 161 team members receiving the globally-recognized diploma to date, the value-driven energy company continues to nurture the next generation of energy sector qualified experts through a number of on-the-job training programs to significantly accelerate their skills development. This achievement also emphasises CCED’s vision to build a world-class energy business in Oman that is dedicated to hiring and developing home-grown talent across all functions.

“Talent acquisition and development is a translation of CCED’s forward-thinking strategy to build a highly skilled national workforce in the oil and gas industry,” said Walter Simpson, Managing Director of CCED. “Effective planning and management to develop and most importantly, retain Omani talent is vital for long-term success in our rapidly evolving and fast-growing sector. We are determined to ensure that our team enjoys a rewarding career by developing the skillsets required to excel in everything they do.” Simpson added, “With the unprecedented macroeconomic backdrop due to the pandemic, we entered 2021 with strong momentum across our operations. This is a reflection of our resilient business model, prudent approach to risk management, significant technology investments, and our teams’ dedication to deliver for our customers and communities.” CCED aims to be a leading institution in attracting the best and brightest talent in the local market by hiring exceptional fresh graduates that demonstrate great promise, as well as attracting highly qualified and experienced team members with industry experience. To date, the company employs close to 700 people, with an Omanisation rate of over 90 per cent.
