WIN BIG!!! As Etisalat Introduces The Geek Force Internship Programme


Are you innovative, techy and looking to take up a customer-facing role? Think you have what it takes to work at the coolest, most innovative telecommunications company in Nigeria?Etisalat, the fastest growing and most innovative telecommunications company in Nigeria, is offering its customers the opportunity to join its ‘geekforce’ if they can demonstrate sound knowledge of devices and passion for customer service.

The Etisalat Geek Force includes smart, witty and technically-trained and savvy individuals who work within Etisalat’s Retail and Customer Care departments and focus on making the company’s over 18 million customer’s communication lives easier by solving their various technical issues.

Through the recently introduced Etisalat Geek Force Internship Programme, the company wants you to learn about the brand’s values as well as bring your own passion for technology to work on some exciting projects.

As an ‘Etisalat Geek’, you would embark on an exciting journey through five departments of the telecommunications company and work in cross-functional teams as well as have executive mentors.

“Etisalat is out with this innovative customer engagement initiative to build strong bonds with customers and offer people the chance of pursuing a rewarding career along the area of their personal passion,” said Mr. Wael Ammar, the Chief Commercial Officer of Etisalat Nigeria.

Driven by social media, the programme invites participants (particularly the youth, aged between 21 and 30) with a University degree or an equivalent degree to showcase their ‘Geek-in-side’ and become an Etisalat Geek. To participate, you must submit an online application and a two-minute YouTube video which will be viewed and assessed.

The top 30 videos will then be pruned down to 20 through an online voting process. Subsequently, the top 20 will be a part of a panel interview where 10 of them will be shortlisted. The top 10 candidates would be housed in an exquisite location in Lagos, and will each receive weekly allowances.

They will be given weekly tasks/assignments which will be posted online and voted on by the Etisalat subscriber base and one candidate will be eliminated each week. Finally, the ‘last five standing’ contestants will win a one-year internship with the telecommunications giant.

Each contestant would be required to demonstrate exceptional understanding of the working and application of the most common telecommunication devices available in the Nigerian market. The successful candidates would be required to help solve customers’ communication challenges.

“The initiative allows us to co-create with our teeming subscriber base as well as supports one of our core corporate values of – “growing people”, said Mr. Charles Ogunwuyi, the Director, Retail Sales at Etisalat Nigeria.
