At Qatar Steel, we fully understand that our business’s future success and sustainability depend upon attracting, developing, and retaining the best talent. Employee development, via intensive engagement, training, and support, is one of Qatar Steel’s highest priorities. Through focused human resource management systems and planning, Qatar Steel strives to develop increasingly more skilled, motivated, and satisfied teams in order to construct a highly efficient and productive ‘steel’ community.
Qatar Steel’s management approach revolves around developing a high-performing and motivated team and maintaining a diversified workforce, which the company sees as the engine for its overall success.
At Qatar Steel, we seek to recruit the best talent in the labour market, to both continue our tradition of excellence and meet our increasing expansion in production and sales. Our recruiting procedures ensure that we hire only the best available talent with no discrimination against race or gender, while also giving priority to qualified Qatari nationals and recent Qatari graduates, in line with the QNV 2030 and NDS 2011–2016. For our short-term support service contracts, we hire external contractors who work full-time in various support activities at the plant and at our main offices.
