It’s been like 5 years since Google significantly invested man-power in the Philippines. They tried to recruit a Country Manager in 2005 or 2006 but to no avail. Looks like they’re going to try again this year.
This is more like a sales and management position so the requirements are a bit tough.
The Position: Country Manager (Philippines) – Singapore
The Catch: The job is based in Singapore, not the Philippines. A bit odd, I know, but Google does not have an office yet in the Philippines ’til now.
The Pay: Six figures? (not sure what currency, hehehe)
The Perks: Cool-factor galore.
The Role: Country Manager (Philippines)
You will manage Google’s sales and business development operations within Philippines. You have deep sales experience, demonstrated general management capability, and a proven ability to build a team. You will be responsible for developing and executing on the overall market strategy within the country. This includes determining the appropriate channel strategy, support model, staffing requirements, partners, target advertisers, and coordinating with functional teams to achieve desired goals. The primary focus will be on top tier client and agency opportunities.
I’m sure a lot of agency folks are drooling over this position (they already have a country consultant though since 2006). Anybody want to apply? Go here. I have some names in mind that might fit the bill and of course, the usual suspects, but can’t share them at this time.
