Mozambique: Power outages in Niassa and Nampula, restrictions in Inhambane - A Verdade
The Total-led Mozambique LNG Project, held last week, in partnership with Eduardo Mondlane University, an recruitment fair to share with students and former students – graduates and masters – from this university employment opportunities in various areas, including community development, procurement, engineering, law, finance, geoscience, hygiene, health and environment, human resources, information technology, logistics and maintenance. This fair, which also included the collection of CVs, interviews and lectures about the project, was the first of several recruitment fairs that Total will hold with educational institutions in the country.
Paulo Manhique, Human Resources Manager at Total, said: “We are committed to building a successful project in Mozambique, which involves maximizing the participation of local content. The recruitment and training of Mozambican workforce is one of the pillars of our local content policy. This fair and others we will hold with other institutions in the country are one of the ways to communicate our employment opportunities and recruit Mozambicans. During the construction phase, we expect to recruit around 5,000 Mozambicans to work in various project areas.”
Total employs directly and through their contractors more than 5,500 Mozambicans, representing 94% of its workforce, and 45% is from Cabo Delgado. Most of these workers are based at the Project site on the Afungi Peninsula in Cabo Delgado and the company’s corporate office in Maputo. These workers carry out their activities at all levels of the project in a wide range of functions, including the construction of the village of Quitunda, the airstrip, the camp expansion and other projects essential for the construction of the LNG facility. The experience gained on these projects will support these Mozambican workers to advance to future projects, including construction of the LNG facility itself.
Total is a major energy player that produces and markets fuels, natural gas and low-carbon electricity. Our 100,000 employees are committed to better energy that is safer, more affordable, cleaner and accessible to as many people as possible. Active in more than 130 countries, our ambition is to become the responsible energy major.
