Senior management positions -Infrastructure industry

Saturday, July 14, 2007

There is a lot of action in the real estate/construction/infrastructure industry, especially with a lot of recent IPOs in the market.

I take this opportunity to try and consolidate some of the openings we are privy to- both through our associate network, as well as some direct clients. I realise that they span locations, levels and indeed, sound very comprehensive. While some of the lesser known brands are accused of hiring 'trespassers', I think the bigger names are pretty choosy about the specific nature /quality of experience the professional is bringing to the table!

-CFO positions for handling entry into new businesses in the industry. eg SEZs, Multiplexes, Malls, Commercial, residenial, Hotels,IT parks, hospitals.

-Group Tax planning head ( Vice President level)

-GM direct taxation-handling tax assessments

-Senior treasury professionals- who should have handled fund raising activities in excess of 250 crores in the recent years.

-GM legal. There are specific openings for persons with experience in corporate law/MOUs/ agreements-as well as those who are familiar with the local laws related to land acquisitions.

-GM accounts- pure accounting operations -finalisation of accounts-as there are seperate departments to handle finance,treasury, tax, audit, costing etc.

On the operations side, there is an acute demand for persons who have substantial experience in Dubai/Middle East region in having handled projects in the high rise apartments.And specifically for

-electromechanical professionals. Mechanical engineers who have been involved in the construction projects and have handled installation and erection of lifts, DG sets, HVAC, plumbing, fire fighting, electrical etc.

-"fit outs" : Either architects or civil engineers handling interiors. They hand hold the clients from the time of booking to the possession of the premises and coordinate with the external consultants handling various aspects of interiors.

-Yes, and finally as the projects are in advanced stages at some locations,there is an acute demand for professionals who have experience in selling/leasing space to corporates. Those working with international property consultants and have sold a few million sft space in the recent past are HOT !!
