Indian digital consultant to support economic recovery with creation of 1,000 UK jobs
A global digital consultant has revealed plans to create 1,000 jobs across the UK over the next three years.
Infosys, based in India, has announced that it is reinforcing its commitment to supporting the UK’s economic recovery with plans to hire 1,000 workers by 2024.
The new team members will join across the company’s design studio in Shoreditch, its innovation center in Canary Wharf and proximity centres in Nottingham and other client locations across the UK.
This comes after this morning’s announcement that trade between India and the UK is set to double by 2030.
Salil Parekh, CEO of Infosys, commented: “While the talent gap has been looming, the events of the past year have exacerbated the need for vital digital skills as businesses have rapidly accelerated their digital transformation.
“Bridging the digital divide and making quality digital education accessible to every citizen are vital to the establishment of a robust future workforce, and the UK’s economic recovery.
“Our commitment to the UK is to support both recovery and growth through digital acceleration, hiring new talent, and supporting the development and reskilling of existing talent to meet evolving economic demands.
“We continue to partner with universities across the UK to nurture the next generation of digital leaders and continually strive to close the skills gap, investing in a brighter future for everyone.”
Boris Johnson, UK Prime Minister, said, “This investment from Infosys is a vote of confidence in the UK and its technology sector and will help that sector scale new heights – creating the jobs of the future.
“We need more firms like Infosys with a commitment to investing in people to help the UK build back better.”
