Infosys, the next-generation digital services and consulting company aims to hire 300 locals in Singapore by 2025.
This is the Indian multinational’s way of supporting the Singapore Government’s employment-generation initiatives for freshers and mid-career professionals. For this exercise, the Company will partner with Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA), which is a statutory board, under the Ministry of Communications and Information.
As part of IMDA’s TechSkills Accelerator (TeSA) Company-Led Training (CLT) programme, Infosys and iCompaz — a joint venture between Infosys and Temasek Holding — will hire technology professionals, as well as professionals, managers, executives and technicians (PMETs) from non-tech backgrounds. Fresh graduates who have passed out of universities and polytechnics will also be hired.
These hires will enjoy the benefits of Infosys’ training and education infrastructure and be able to avail new pathways to transition from conventional jobs to digital jobs of the future.
Shaji Mathew, executive vice president, Infosys, said that this collaboration with the Government of Singapore “underscores our investment and commitment to leverage Infosys’ digital expertise to develop a highly skilled future workforce at a time when the world is trying to embrace digital at scale to navigate the post-pandemic economic reality”.
According to him, Infosys is strengthening its presence in Singapore, “in pace with the digital transformation journeys of our clients” and “the plan to hire 300 locals in Singapore reinforces our commitment to our localisation strategy, at a global level”.
Kiren Kumar, deputy chief executive, IMDA, is also looking forward to Singaporeans getting trained and hired “for in-demand technology roles including cybersecurity, software and cloud engineering”.
