With many people losing their jobs amid the coronavirus pandemic and collapsing economy, a recent initiative by some of the prominent IT services providers is set to bring in a ray of hope for these individuals.
Reportedly, IT services providers such as HCL Technologies, Infosys, Mphasis, and Wipro, have laid down their plans of creating 3,500 jobs in the United Kingdom over the next few years to support the nation’s economic recovery and growth.
It was mentioned in a statement that the Enhanced Trade Partnership pact between India and the United Kingdom creates immediate and lucrative opportunities for British businesses in the Indian sub-continent across diverse industries like life sciences, food and drink, and the service sector.
According to reliable reports, Mphasis and Wipro have together committed to invest nearly 50 million pounds to carry out the employment drive. Moreover, Infosys has also declared its plans of hiring about 1,000 people in the country over the span of next three years.
An Infosys official stated that a large percentage of the workforce would include 2020-21 graduated students from leading universities and colleges in the country to ensure a diverse talent pool and support upskilling efforts.
Additionally, new employees hired would work on cutting-edge innovation in the digital space, including AI, cloud computing, data and analytics, enterprise services, and open source technologies. This would potentially support some of the world’s largest organizations to navigate their digital journeys.
In line with this, Infosys is also likely to provide critical training and mentoring opportunities for the newbies.
Reports suggest that the newly selected employees would become a part of the world-class staff including Infosys’ proximity centers in Nottingham, design studio in Shoreditch, and innovation center in the country’s Canary Wharf, and other client locations nationwide.
