Mobility achievements. Once their CVs are complete, we circulate it proactively to all the departments in the Home OpCo to search for opportunities. We have created an internal talent management system called ‘Etisalat Talent Bank’. This bespoke system provides a repository and search-enabled database of our top talent and all Secondees are asked to keep this up to date. While we find that many of our Secondees secure positions, well in advance of repatriation, there are still some that remain unplaced. In this situation, we try to find transitional assignments for them while we look for permanent positions. We also circulate details to our other OpCos to see if they can be placed on local contracts. As I said, it is a challenge and we have come some way to improving the situation. I look forward to seeing what other companies are doing so that we might leverage best practice. Dr Adrian Moule graduated from Cambridge University with a PhD in Chemistry.
