Infosys has announced its plans to hire 1000 employees in the UK over the next three years, thereby reinforcing its commitment to supporting the country’s economic recovery and growth.

New employees would be working at the cutting edge of innovation in the digital space, including cloud computing, data and analytics, artificial intelligence, open source technologies and enterprise services to support some of the world’s largest organizations navigate their digital journeys, said the company in a press release.

Infosys said the investment in UK talent reinforces its dedication to strengthening UK-India relationship.

The Bengaluru-headquartred IT services company would provide critical training and mentoring opportunities for the fresh hires.

The new employees would join a world-class workforce spanning Infosys’ design studio in Shoreditch, its innovation center in Canary Wharf and proximity centres in Nottingham and other client locations across the UK, said Infosys.

To ensure a diverse talent pool and support the upskilling of the industry’s future leaders, a large proportion of the workforce will be hired from recently graduated students from leading colleges and universities in the UK.

The company will also hire experienced professionals from technology and consulting with deep sector expertise who will be able to support local businesses in their digital journeys and lead a robust workforce for the future.

“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,” Boris Johnson, UK Prime Minister, was quoted saying.

Salil Parekh, chief executive officer, Infosys, said, the company’s 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. “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,” said Parekh.
