OTE telecom is planning to hire a few hundred employees, though the exact number will depend on the take-up rate of two voluntary exit programs is has announced and the specialization of the workers who sign up for the deal.
According to OTE, technical staff and sales employees entering the exit programs will be replaced at a rate of 100 percent, as the Deutsche Bank subsidiary is already facing a shortage in those posts. Employees from other posts (administration, security, sanitation etc.) who enter the programs may not be replaced. Given that OTE has targeted the departure of 700 employees and it will replace between 60 and 70 percent of them, it will likely hire between 400 and 500 new workers.
Greece’s leading telecom provider has already opened the portal to receive online applications on its website.
It is mainly interested in hiring field technicians, business-to-business account managers, service and operating systems technicians and shop salespeople.
According to the corporation, it has hired more than 2,500 young people in the last 30 months.
