Airtel Nigeria Recruits Manager, Brand Assets & Activation

Airtel - Ever since Airtel took its first step in the world of telecommunications, there has been no looking back for it... and for its employees. Airtel-ites bring a new meaning to their daily work routine by exploring newer ways of working, taking risks, going on unchartered paths and by just doing things THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE.

Here, we encourage our people to explore. We tell them that new lands don't come with maps. That if they slip and fall on unknown paths, they will get a helping hand. We have built our work culture on this simple philosophy. Get rid of the fear of the unknown and you create the grounds for success.

And it has helped people fly.

It has made our workplace a workshop, where thinking different is the norm. Where fearless innovation results in amazing breakthroughs.

But truly, the most satisfying breakthrough is the workplace itself. It's a culture that celebrates 17,000 employees as 17,000 entrepreneurs.
