South African mobile operator MTN says it is on the lookout for 150 digital experts to ensure it keeps pace with growing digital demand.
The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE)-listed company's major jobs drive aims to unlock the power of connectivity. The move ties in with the Africa-based telco group’s 2025 ambition to become the continent’s leading digital platform business by 2025.
“We intend to lead the delivery of a bold new digital world and are therefore looking to expand our teams to ensure we keep challenging what we do to always do better,” said Tebogo Maenetja chief of human resources at MTN South Africa.
“As we recover from the devastation of Covid-19, exciting job openings for young people and those with high-level digital skills and aptitude are opening up within MTN; proof of the power that connectivity holds for South Africans,” she added.
MTN said its expansion drive to become a fully-fledged technology services company has seen the business expand and diversify significantly.
The new positions it’s looking to fill cover many new critical roles, including UX and UI designers, product owners, performance marketers, digital content specialists, e-commerce experts, “full-stack” developers, “scrum masters” and business analysts.
