I joined the Allied on a 3-month internship programme in June 2013 after, graduating from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST) with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Social Work. I quickly gained insight into the company’s activities while working as an intern in the document management center. I was subsequently retained to serve my national service posting in Allied.
During this period, I had the opportunity to attend corporate training sessions and also work alongside some head office and field managers. The extensive experience I was being exposed was apparently in my preparation to be appointed a Client’s Relationship Officer. Currently I have been assigned Allied tier-1 corporate clients portfolio that I successfully manage. I have also managed to sign on 2 new corporate clients in this short period.
I have benefited immensely from the Allied Incubator Programme and as I look to the future, I intend to specialize in project management, a role essential to the downstream oil and gas industry. Cheers to team Allied especially, my coaches and team mates!!!

I graduated from the University of Ghana with a first degree in psychology and French. After completing my national service I, applied and got accepted into the Allied Internship Programme in August 2013. I was assigned to the data center to assist with the digital archiving of the organisation’s documents. During this period I also acquainted myself with the work flow processes of other departments. 6 months into my internship, I applied and was interviewed for a new vacancy – a Client Relationship Officer, which I passed. This marked my graduation from an intern to become a permanent employee in Allied.
Allied has provided me in this short period, the requisite platform to gain such depth of knowledge and experience about the downstream oil and gas services sector. What I personally find unique about Allied is the familial work culture; there is a genuine willingness among colleagues to help when the need arise.
As Allied expands its business operations into the sub-region, I aspire to leverage my bilingual skills to the company’s benefit.

I hold a diploma (HND) in Marketing from the Institute of Professional Studies. I am currently in my junior year pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Professional Studies.
The AIP® has presented a unique opportunity for me to acquaint myself with marketing operations within the downstream petroleum sector. Furthermore, I am able to relate more succinctly academic principles to their practical relevance in industry.
Over the past six (6) months I have worked on projects under the business development and marketing departments. Notable among them are the digitization of office documents, fuel discharge procedures, verification and auditing of credit fuel coupons and, the migration of corporate customers from the existing credit fuel booklet system to the Allied+ fuel card payment system.
It’s been an interesting and challenging learning curve. I intend to continue to excel and look forward to become a full graduate of the AIP®.
