Airtel’s triple vote of confidence fulfils brand vision

In a year when entries to the AfricaCom awards were higher than ever, it’s no small achievement to be shortlisted in three different categories. Airtel, the telecoms services provider which operates in 20 countries across Africa and Asia, managed just that. Three different campaigns, each designed to ensure Airtel achieves its aim of being the most loved brand in Africa by 2015 were all shortlisted by the judges of the 2013 AfricaCom awards.

Airtel’s Success in Africa

What’s enabled Airtel to grow their market share in the face of global competition and produce innovative products and campaigns? Values and visions succeed when the right people are in the right jobs to make theory work in practice. Airtel Africa has become a strong brand with clear market differentiation and it’s Airtel’s strong focus on personnel that has delivered this clear vote of confidence for its digital marketing.

Global Career Company contributes to Airtel’s recruitment success

Global Career Company’s Business Development Director, Sherin Helmy, commented on Airtel’s success, “Congratulations to everyone at Airtel on once again setting the standard in their market. We’re proud to work with a company delivering at the cutting edge across Africa, and to have recruited some of the people who’ve helped make it happen.”

Airtel jobs have been defined with care, and filled with the most suitable individuals, not just for the role, but to contribute to the overall growth and development of the company in a competitive and fast-moving environment. This focus on talent location and selection has been good for Airtel but good for Africa too, as it creates a competitive market for talent in one of the biggest and most influential global

areas – telecoms services spend is predicted to increase by 1.2% globally this year.*


Coming Soon to a Market Near You…

Global Career Company is kicking off 2014 where we left off last year – on the ground in the markets. Building on a 2013 itinerary that saw the team visit an unprecedented number of countries, this year on the road begins with Hedi Samari, Senior Recruitment Consultant, representing our Careers in Maghreb brand in his native Tunisia. During the trip he’ll be joined by Managing Director Rupert Adcock and together they will be connecting with a number of current clients to check delivery standards and assist with developing needs.

Hedi and Rupert will also be introducing Careers in Maghreb to a some important prospective clients, who we hope to be able to help via a combination of recruitment services. They still have a few meeting slots remaining, so anyone interested in finding out more about our service mix should get in touch soon.

Three of the team, including Mariana Castanheira over from the newly opened Johannesburg office, will be fact-finding and shaking hands in Luanda. With demand growing month on month and a fast-paced, competitive talent market, this Angola trip promises to be an exciting one. The team, including Senior Recruitment Consultant Roberta Dutra, Business Development Manager Paloma Bernar and Recruitment Consultant Mariana, will be on the ground at the end of February with a small amount of room still open in the diary. A face to face presentation remains the best way to find out how Careers in Africa’s unique recruitment service blend can work for you, so demand some of the team’s time today.

Elsewhere in the emerging markets…

Global Career Company strives to spend more time in the market than any international recruitment consultancy. We believe it’s the only way to deliver on our promise to “lead the talent agenda in emerging markets”. It’s critical that we continue to go and listen to our clients, to go and see what is really happening. That’s how we can keep delivering the kind of recruitment services our clients need.
