“A Week Without Turnstiles” Provides an Inside Look at the Operations of NFP

Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizers Plant (NFP) took part in the nationwide campaign “A Week Without Turnstiles” organized by the Corporation for the Development of the Russian Far East and the Arctic (KRDV). Students, schoolchildren, and their parents had the opportunity to interact with the specialists from the plant, gaining a deeper understanding of how this key resident of Nakhodka ASEZ operates, and asked their questions.

This career guidance event has been held twice a year since 2015. This time, it coincided with the Unified Open Doors Day, which is part of the federal project “Professionalism.” Approximately 200 people attended the event.

The key objective of NFP’s human resources policy is to build an effective team of employees consisting mainly of local specialists. This approach also addresses another issue important for Nakhodka, which is to halt population outflow and preserve the city’s human resources.

“We are ready to provide young specialists with specialized knowledge necessary for work at the enterprise.  A contract for specialized training, a stipend, paid internships, competitive salaries above the market rate, and an extended social package with additional health insurance coverage – all of these incentives motivate young people and give them the opportunity to become successful professionals in their hometown,” noted Victor Grebenyukov, the executive director of NFP.

A dialogue with future young specialists reveals that they are willing to stay in their hometown if they see prospects for career growth and self-realization.

“I plan to live and work in the Far East. I was born here, I like it here—the city, the nature. I can see that there are job opportunities for me in Nakhodka,” said Maxim Kolosyuk, who is planning to enroll at Nakhodka Humanities and Polytechnical College this year.

A starting point for a career at NFP could be a position of “chemical production operator”. It is one of the most in-demand specialties at the enterprise. Recruitment for this position is already underway, and future employees of the plant can expect training and guaranteed employment in the future.

Engaging with students and graduates of universities and colleges in the region proves to be an effective means for creating a talent pool for NFP. Such events, which are regularly conducted, have led to the signing of several agreements on targeted education. In addition to academic scholarships, the company provides its own stipends to students and guarantees employment upon completion of their studies.

It is worth noting that Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizer Plant is among the top three investment projects in the Far East and top ten in Russia. The volume of taxes allocated to the regional budget will reach 49 billion rubles in the preferential regime of the advanced economical development zone, and will further contribute an annual 26 billion rubles. During the production launch phase, the plant will create 1,500 high-paying job positions.
