United Kingdom: Infosys, a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, today reinforced its commitment to supporting UK’s economic recovery and growth by announcing plans to hire 1,000 workers in the country over the next three years.

New hires will 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. The company will provide critical training and mentoring opportunities for the fresh hires.

Recognized as a Top Employer globally and ranked among the top five employers in the UK for 2021, the new team members will 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.

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.

Salil Parekh, CEO, Infosys, said, “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.”
