Looking for a purely English-speaking job in SL (Colombo)

I'm 39 and a UK citizen with Sri Lankan family who has just moved here. I am actively looking for a purely English-speaking job. I have Sri Lankan heritage and will be applying for Dual Nationality but may need support in obtaining a working visa in the interim)

I'm currently looking for a junior-mid management level role in one or more of the following areas: commercial strategy, B2B, business development, sales and marketing, CRM and relationship management. Also have some experience in project and product management.

Ideally I'm looking for a challenging role (perhaps even in a new sector or function) that gives me the opportunity to learn and develop new skills and experience, and which also gives me the potential to progress (rapidly) based upon merit.

I have a BA and a Masters from Oxford University and have more than 12 years experience across various industries, sectors and geographies. Have particularly strong knowledge of: online betting and gaming, ecommerce, marketing technology and software, and mobile technology and app development etc. I have exceptional spoken and written English plus decent French and some Swedish. Also have very basic spoken Sinhala but not enough to use professionally.
