Norwegian telecoms company Telenor, one of the two successful applicants in the recent international telecoms bid, has begun its recruitment of management staff as the first part of its recruitment process.
Telenor will appoint 25 management staff from within Myanmar with applications having opened from August 13 until the end of September. Later, staff will be employed for customer services, accounting, marketing and technical staff.
“Telenor Myanmar aims to invest in Myanmar in the long-term as well as upgrade Myanmar’s ICT sector in order for it to meet international standards,” said Tipayarat Kaewsringarm, chief people officer of Telenor Myanmar.
“We aim to create existing future development opportunities for our staff and want to be recognised as the best employer for Myanmar people and an employer who takes responsibility,” she added.
Telenor’s Myanmar arm will open its Telenor Myanmar Academy to train staff for management qualifications. The academy “offers courses of a practical basis as well as management courses to help achieve goals and success and provide staff with the necessary knowledge to carry out their daily duty,” the company said in a statement.
Interested applicants should apply through the company’s facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Telenor were announced as winners of the tender alongside Qatari company Ooredoo and are expected to implement their product in the country within eight months. Their offices will be located in Yangon and Nay Pyi Taw.
Headquartered just outside Norway capital, Oslo, Telenor operates in more than 30 countries and is in the top three of all companies listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.
