Etisalat will utilise LinkedIn’s Talent Solutions, such as flagship product Recruiter, which allows companies to recruit the best candidates using search and collaboration tools.
“The telecoms business is driven as much by people as it is advances in technology. Having the best team is the difference between being a follower and a leader,” said Abdulaziz Al Sawaleh, Chief Human Resources Officer, Etisalat Group.
“As the Etisalat Group continues to expand, and as the telecoms industry becomes increasingly competitive, we need to promote the opportunities that are available in our company and grow our reputation as the employer of choice. LinkedIn gives us one click access to a skilled member base, at scale and will provide an opportunity to engage with a global talent pool.”
LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with more than 200 million members worldwide and over five million professionals in the MENA region. Etisalat has operations spanning fifteen countries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. The company has a market value of approximately US$20 billion, annual revenues of US$8.5 billion and a customer base of 130 million.
Ali Matar, Director, Talent Solutions at LinkedIn Middle East said: “We are excited to work with Etisalat to help them transform their recruitment strategy. LinkedIn’s Talent Solutions including optimized Career Pages, Work with Us Ads, and Recruiter are uniquely placed to help organizations find and retain the best talent by matching the right talent with the right opportunity.”
