Networking vendor Cisco has launched a scheme to help partners across the Gulf region fill their job vacancies.

Cisco, which claims it is vital for resellers to find qualified talent for the purposes of business continuity and growth, says its ‘Referred to Partners' initiative will aid partners in their recruitment efforts.

The vendor receives a large number of CVs from job applicants, many of whom are highly skilled candidates. The Cisco Gulf channel team claims it is now engaging with its leading partners in the region and the Cisco recruitment team to collate a list of Gulf partner job vacancies that will be shared with candidates.

"I recognised that in order to grow Cisco, we can do so by taking advantage of an opportunity to help our partners," said Adrian Taylor, channel manager at Cisco Gulf, who instigated the scheme.

Taylor revealed he approached each of Cisco's leading partners and asked them to send a list of their open job opportunities in order to engage with Cisco's own recruitment team to involve the partner opportunities as part of its standard process.

"It's important to make sure that our channel partners have the right kind of talent working for them because ultimately they're the most important part of our delivery," added Taylor.
