Despite the formal halt in sales of equipment in the Russian market, Huawei has increased its recruitment. The number of vacancies for a Chinese company in Russia in the first half of the year increased by 49% compared to the same period last year (814 vs. 545).
Huawei more than tripled the number of vacancies in the field of sales: if last year the company was looking for 27 employees, this year it is already 117. Also, the Russian division of Huawei has stepped up the search for highly qualified specialists in the field of information technology and communications (the number of vacancies increased by 33%), specialists maintenance and installation of equipment (by 186%), as well as students and trainees (by 132%). The number of vacancies for specialists in the production and maintenance of electronics has been increased by 233%.
According to HH.ru, Huawei is required, in particular, network engineers, base station operators, access and data transmission equipment engineers. However, Huawei did not comment on the situation.
Unlike many other companies, including Nokia, Cisco and Ericsson, HPE, Huawei did not announce a withdrawal from the Russian market, but actually stopped deliveries to local partners in March.
At the beginning of June became known that the company began to close its official outlets in Russia. At that time, out of 19 stores, four had already stopped working.
There is an opinion that Huawei will find an opportunity to stay in the Russian market. The top manager of a large IT company stated the following: “Perhaps the company will create a separate brand for working here to sell the entire line of equipment.”
