Government Liaison Officer for the Guyana Shore Base Incorporated (GYSBI), Rabin Chandrapal, has disclosed that the hiring of locals will begin as soon as month-end following the conclusion of the company’s last career fair on October 16.
As a local company with a 97 percent Guyanese workforce, Chandrapal was keen to note that GYSBI intends to build capacity and create beneficial opportunities for the citizens of Guyana to participate and become involved in the growing oil and gas sector. He said, “We held two career fairs on October 9 and 10 at the Providence Stadium and Uitvlugt, Region Three respectively, and the response has been heartening. In just those two days, we met with and interviewed approximately 1200 persons.”
The GYSBI official added, “A third such event will take place on October 16 at the Enmore Community Centre Ground from 10 am to 5 pm and we anticipate a favorable response there as well.”
He reminded that the aim is to fill 150 positions including Warehouse Supervisors, Mechanics, Crane Operators, Equipment Maintenance Technicians, Field Technicians, and Fuel Facility Operators.
Interested applicants are asked to walk with their résumé, any academic certificates, a copy of a valid form of ID, and one passport-sized photograph. Only persons with a vaccination card or a negative PCR test from within the last seven days will be allowed entry at the career fair.
