Vodafone Oman has partnered with Dubai-headquartered Memac Ogilvy to curate, manage and implement a specialized marketing training program, following the success of its earlier skills development programs in Care and Retail.

This latest collaboration comes as part of Vodafone’s aim to help build a circular talent economy, by nurturing Omani talents, increasing their employability and building their capabilities through continuous learning opportunities from world industry-leading experts.

The program was focused on three pillars of modern marketing and communications including Media, Content & Creative, and Social Media Communications. In its first successful year, candidates were carefully selected through a rigorous assessment process following which they were challenged to spend six months on both learning and working through live briefs.
