Rapid Resource Mobilisation for Ericsson in Africa


Ericsson, a global leader in telecommunications, faced a challenge when awarded a rollout project in Africa. The
project required a skilled workforce, including site supervisors and various other telecom resources, to be present
in the country within tight timelines. Ensuring the timely and efficient deployment of resources to fulfil this
demanding project was paramount.


To address Ericsson’s resource mobilisation challenge, Penta Consulting devised a swift and comprehensive

Local Office Setup: In a remarkably short timeframe, Penta established a fully staffed local office in Africa. This local presence was essential for streamlining resourcing efforts, facilitating immigration and compliance processes, and ensuring seamless coordination on the ground.

Resource Mobilisation: Leveraging our extensive network and expertise in the telecom industry, we rapidly
sourced and recruited over 130 resources, including site supervisors and various other telecom professionals.
These professionals were selected based on their qualifications and experience to meet Ericsson’s specific project

Local Skilled Engineers: Recognizing the importance of having a workforce that could relate to the local context,
we made significant efforts to source a substantial number of resources from locally skilled engineers. This not
only helped in fulfilling Ericsson’s commitments to the African country’s government but also ensured a strong local
presence for the project.

Immigration and Compliance Support: We provided comprehensive support related to immigration and
compliance, ensuring that all necessary permits and documentation were in order for the expatriate resources
deployed to Africa.
