As the demand for cloud services catches up in the African continent, Oracle has announced a massive recruitment drive to hire 1,400 new cloud sales professionals. The recruitment drive across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) business region seeks to get professionals who will play a vital role in fuelling the growth of the company’s cloud business throughout the region.
The new roles will be based in six locations: Amsterdam (The Netherlands); Cairo and Dubai (Middle East and Africa); Dublin (Ireland); Malaga (Spain) and Prague (Czech Republic).
In addition to hiring the very best talent from the above locations, Oracle is looking for recruits with a range of experience from across the EMEA region, from highly motivated sales professionals with two to three years’ experience to highly experienced senior sales professionals.
As well as increasing its cloud sales workforce Oracle will be investing in two new cloud sales centres in Amsterdam and Cairo and new state-of-the-art offices opening this year in Dubai, Dublin and Prague.
