A big vacancy ad from Powertel appeared in yesterday’s Sunday Mail, by the looks of it the company is bolstering its forces for a major onslaught. In these interesting of times, Powertel regrets the major advances enemy camps have gained at its expense. This why it’s searching far and wide for the following:
Chief Technology Strategy Expert (CTSE)
According to the requirements this position (which we have never heard of) entails:
Acer extensa 2519
Macbook Air 2015
Ipad Min 2
Flash drives and Sd cards
Advising on alignment of vision with business strategy and technology through entrepreneurship by integrating company processes with the appropriate technologies and spearheading culture change initiatives in Powertel.
This is quite a mouthful that left us feeling really dumb stricken. Enemy camps you better watch out, the CTSE is going to spearhead you out of action.
Chief Strategic Marketing Expert (CSME)
Once again, we have never heard of this position but kudos goes to the company for crafting a description fit for (ordinary) human consumption:
The Chief Strategic Marketing Expert’s role will be to assist in the direction and control of the company’s marketing programmes and activities and advice on marketing strategies in conformity with the organisation’s strategic plans and objectives.
We are not so sure where such a hotshot will fit in the marketing department’s grander scheme of things. We nonetheless believe the Marketing Director, Marketing Manager/s, and Marketing Executives of Powertel have a rough idea. Enemy camps you have been warned, the Powertel blitz is coming.
Other positions the company is looking to deploy are a Treasury Expert and a Legal Advisor.
These are interesting times indeed.
