With the inception of the implementation phase of Project Awaz with Shell Pakistan, a training and orientation program for potential candidates for jobs at Shell was organised on August 1, 2016 at Classic (Shell site). The project is geared towards providing gainful employment to individuals with hearing impairments in various roles at Shell sites across Karachi.
Out of these potential candidates, 16 candidates will be selected and recruited at 11 different sites. The training focused on introducing Shell to candidates as well as discussing the job description they are applying for, work ethics followed by a tour of the site. The training also included a sign language session where the candidates were taught signs specific to Shell and its daily operations.
