Qatarization and our workforce


Qatarization and our workforce
At ExxonMobil Qatar, we are committed to fulfilling His Highness the Emir of the State of Qatar’s vision, which promotes the increased participation of Qatari nationals in the workforce and is aligned with the Human Development Pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030. We believe that human development is a key cornerstone to building a knowledge-based economy and a prosperous future for Qatar.

ExxonMobil Qatar is steadily progressing toward its target with a Qatarization rate of 60 percent. We are involved in the recruiting, training and development of Qatari nationals for different roles across all departments within the company. Once recruited, employees receive on-the-job training throughout ExxonMobil's local and global operations to ensure successful career development. 

ExxonMobil Qatar also offers fully-funded undergraduate scholarships and summer internship opportunities to qualified candidates from local and international academic institutes. Additionally, ExxonMobil Qatar offers scholarships for post-graduate environmental studies in partnership with Qatar University.
