In a statement, quoted by Angop, the companies explained that the process will include areas of high incidence, such as electrical and mechanical engineering, as well as health, safety and environment technicians, environmental management, laboratory, human resources and accountants.
The statement clarifies that more information on recruitment, such as the number of vacancies to be made available for each area, will be disseminated soon.
The jobs generated with the construction of the refinery will be filled mainly by national technicians, namely from Cabinda, enabling the achievement of considerable advantages for the population and the local economy, writes Angop.
Regarding the start of recruitment, the flagship oil company considered that this "represents the clear statement that the project is about to become a reality, which will be extremely important for Angola and its economy, since mineral resources will be finally refined in Angolan territory, closing a chain that is too relevant for the country and its population".
In turn, Gemcorp says it is "confident in this step and looking forward to the impact that the beginning of the recruitment of Angolan professionals will have on the daily lives of several families and, above all, the impact that it will have at the level of energy security of the country".
The project is valued at 920 million dollars and is the result of an investment by Sonangol and Gemcorp.
