Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) trains and hires local workers in Albania
In a bridge between industry and local calls for employment, the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) has organized training for several gas pipeline welding inspectors, as well as providing certifications and jobs with the TAP project in Albania. The effort facilitates employment and boosts local skills in the area affected by the pipeline.
As one training participant said, “We received thorough training and, at the same time, a much-needed job. Both the training and the work experience improve our candidate profiles for future employment, even beyond Albania’s borders.”
This isn’t the first time TAP has improved prospects for local workers. In February 2017, TAP briefed young professionals on the requirements for becoming field inspectors. TAP also developed an internship program for students who may be interested in pursuing a career in the energy field. The company prides itself on engaging local experts at each stage of the construction process.
TAP currently employs over 2,400 people in Albania, the majority of which are locally hired.
