"The first phase will focus on the company’s immediate need for experienced, management-level candidates to build up a strong leadership team that will be responsible for developing strategies and managing the company’s commercial launch and roll-out," said Telnor in a recent press release.

The second and third phases are to be carried out between October and December, and it will aim to recruit telecom and technology experts and professionals.
