  • a Welcome Letter from Outpost

Outpost Networking Morning

Outpost holds a Networking Morning every month.  This event is for all PDO and Shell spouses.  If you are a new arrival you will receive a personal invitation to this event.  The event provides an opportunity for you to meet other new arrivals, to meet other PDO/Shell spouses and to meet the Outpost Muscat team. These events usually take place in the morning but we are also holding afternoon events.  All Outpost Muscat events are also posted under News.

We also developed a Career & Development Guide which is available in the Outpost office or can be requested via e-mail for electronic copy.
