Ahead of the launch of Â Â Â commercial services of its Glo 1 Submarine Cable, Globacom Limited has invited applications from bright, ambitious and suitably qualified candidates to fill an array of vacancies, including those of Chief Technical Officer, Planning and Provisioning Engineers, Sales and Legal Officers.
A statement from the company said the advertised positions attract internationally competitive remuneration packages.
According to Globacomâ€™s Executive Director for Human Resources, Mr. Adewale Sangowawa, the company is looking for first class brains and competent hands from across Nigeria, other African countries as well as from America, Europe and Asia. â€œAs an equal opportunity employer, our corporate policy stretches across all races, countries and genders.
We are, in essence, giving Nigerians, Africans and others a chance to contribute to the development of a modern-day telecommunications giantâ€, Sangowawa stated.
Globacom recently became the first single telecommunication company in Africa to own its international submarine cable. The multi-million dollar high capacity Glo 1 optic fibre cable will bring direct connectivity between West Africa, the United Kingdom and the rest of the world.
The 9,800 km-long cable which runs from Bude in the United Kingdom to Lagos, Nigeria with branches into 14 West African countries such as Senegal, Cote Dâ€™Ivoire and Ghana, will provide excess bandwidth to all the cities connected to the cable, and lead to a much faster and robust connectivity for voice, data and video. The facility which has already landed in several African countries will for the first time provide Africans at large an almost unlimited bandwidth and high-speed internet connection between the region and the rest of the world. This will make telecom services much faster, much more reliable and much cheaper for everyone.
Glo 1 is expected to stimulate a new era of prosperity across the continent, by facilitating everything from distance learning, video conferencing and new TV channels to such marvellous things as online medical diagnostics and full telemedicine services. It also has sufficient capacity to cater for the regionâ€™s requirements for years to come.
Globacom Limited is Nigeriaâ€™s Second National Operator and a totally integrated telecom service provider with GSM, Fixed, Broadband and Gateway licences. It also operates in the Republic of Benin and Ghana, and has a licence in Cote dâ€™Ivoire.
