UEP contributes to local development and welfare through job creation.

UEP’s Operator Training programme enables young people from the company’s concession districts to get the best in class on-the-job training. Advertisements are placed in local language newspapers once the selection phase for this programme is about to start, to ensure transparency and to select on merit from a wide pool of candidates. Applicants undergo a rigorous exam and interview process and only the top-scoring candidates are selected.

Once selected, recruits are paid a salary and signed on for a two-year training schedule as Field Production Trainees. Post-completion of the contract period some Production Trainees are retained, conditional upon headcount availability. While others successfully pass out with a certificate, enabling them to secure employment in other reputed companies both in Pakistan as well as overseas.

Several senior positions at UEP are occupied by employees inducted through this programme.
