PricewaterhouseCoopers India (PwC India) has opened its new flexible, multi-use office in Jaipur, Rajasthan, with the objective of tapping the immense talent potential that the state has to offer and serve clients in the region.
The new office is part of PwC’s expansion plans, growth strategy and commitment to creating 10,000 additional jobs in India, over the next five years.
Sanjeev Krishan, chairman, PwC in India, reiterates that the Company is “looking to leverage the wealth of skilled professionals in other cities too” and “ Jaipur’s rich education system produces a large number of CAs, engineers and management graduates every year,” who can be easily tapped.
Jaipur also happens to be “a hub for a lot of industrial activity within the state”, allowing PwC “to get closer to our clients and add value in their growth journey.”
Krishnan revealed that “Between 2006 and 2017, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities received five times more investments for retail infrastructure than Tier 1 and metro cities, reiterating the promise these cities hold.”
He went on to add that “the Jaipur office is a testament to our commitment to India’s growth story”, as it will offer opportunities to multiskilled local talent.
The firm is also looking to expand its operations in Bhubaneshwar and open branch offices in Noida and Thane in the year ahead.
With presence across 156 countries, PwC’s network of firms employs over 295,000 people who are committed to delivering quality in assurance, advisory and tax services.
