The national air transport company, Cameroon Airline Corporation aka Camair-co announced recently that it is looking for a Sales and Marketing Director. Camair-co is looking for a motivated professional with very high management skills whose contribution to the Commercial Management and Marketing will be decisive in strengthening the commercial performance of the airline, Camair-co said in a call to application released this Thursday, July 16, 2015 on the national bilingual daily Cameroon Tribune. Interestingly, the air transport company that has been a Francophone private preserve ever since they chased away Anglophones airline gurus like John Tabi stated that candidates must, among other things hold a BAC(The Anglophone equivalence of GCE A level) + 5 years in marketing, sales or management, with a minimum of 10 years of experience preferably in an airline. Nothing can best represent the failure of the CPDM regime than the fact that jobs that were in the yesteryears meant only for children from highly placed Francophone Beti-Ewondo background are now being advertised. 

Correspondingly, applicants have until 23rd of July 2015 to submit their application to the Director of Human Resource or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
