Communication Engineer, Ireland
From Alexandria to Ireland
My name is Ahmed Nadder, I am a communication Engineer with 14 years of experience in Telecommunication Management Networks (TMN). I recently got my Masters degree in Innovation Management from Dublin Institute of Technology.
I joined Ericsson Ireland back in 2012. I am currently working within the Tier-2 MOSS Customer Support team here in Athlone, and I'm responsible for supporting MOSS Ericsson Customers around the globe.
I am from Egypt and more specifically from the Pearl of the Mediterranean: Alexandria, the ancient city built in 331 BC by Alexander the Great.
Back in the 19th and before the middle of the 20th centuries, Alexandria was a well known cosmopolitan city hosting a different mix of cultures and nationalities. It was a real model of pluralism and inter-cultural exchange. Large communities of Italian, French, Greek, Armenian and British used to live happily in Alexandria. Unfortunately, I have not witnessed the peak of such cosmopolitism in Alexandria, although I have heard lots of stories from my granny about how different cultures used to live in harmony in Alexandria, and how this diversity and melt have promoted Alexandria in lots of areas like arts, science, literature and lots more.
When I was doing the interview here in Ericsson before joining, the interviewer started introducing the customer support team by saying “We are a diverse team of more than 15 different nationalities ...”. That was the first thing used by her to describe her team strengths - in fact, the strongest aspects that can attract any new candidate to join Ericsson were diversity and inclusion, as these are among the first of its values.
Being part of Ericsson Ireland has given me the opportunity on both the internal and the external sides to be exposed to different kinds of people during my daily work. This has given me a much broader mindset, and more ways of thinking and understanding others. It is a great chance to be part of such diversity, which I have really missed back in Alexandria.
Thanks Ericsson for giving me such cosmopolitan opportunity again!

Important notice: fraudulent job offers
It has come to our attention that emails and job adverts have been created and circulated by unknown individuals for the purpose of attempting to defraud candidates.
Potential candidates should be wary of approaches that appear to be offering a job for which they have not applied, especially if personal details or money must be sent in order to proceed with the recruitment. Neither Ericsson nor any commissioned third parties recruit in this manner. Such approaches are almost certainly fraudulent attempts to gain details of identity for illegal use.
Ericsson is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
