Two motivated groups of Omani trainee Cooks and Junior Stock Controllers were pictured recently at the National Hospitality Institute (NHI) and Maharat Training Institute respectively. They are training under the support of the National Training Fund (NTF) and have guaranteed employment from Renaissance Services. The trainees will be provided with theoretical knowledge and equipped with practical skills before joining the Renaissance team at one of their many operations.
Renaissance CEO, Stephen Thomas, said, “We support this programme to develop local workforce. We are committed to ever-increasing In Country Value (ICV) by driving meaningful initiatives that achieve greater Omani employment, maximum use of local goods and services, and effective Domestic Direct Investment (DDI).
Head of Training & Development, John Murphy, added, “We are extremely proud to work with NTF, NHI and Maharat in the development of our workforce with well-trained and motivated Omanis, who are ready, skilled and able to begin employment from day one”.
The trainees will be visited throughout the training programme and Renaissance personnel will ensure that each trainee has a comprehensive understanding of the job and the environment they have signed up to.
The trainee Cooks will spend ten months and the Junior Stock Controllers will spend twelve months on their respective training programmes with a combination of centre-based training and on-job training (OJT) ensuring they acquire the necessary skills, knowledge and ability to do the job in hand.
