IT major Infosys announced it will hire 300 workers in Singapore over the next three years across a variety of roles.
This is a part of its collaboration with Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) of Singapore — a statutory board —to support the government’s ongoing programmes to create employment opportunities for freshers and mid-career professionals.
The company will aim to hire technology professionals, mature PMETs (Professionals, Managers, Executives, and Technicians) from tech and non-tech backgrounds, as well as fresh graduates from polytechnics and universities to create a skilled and future-ready workforce in Singapore.
Infosys, along with Infosys Compaz (iCompaz) — a joint venture between Infosys Limited and Temasek Holdings—will hire these individuals as part of IMDA’s TechSkills Accelerator (TeSA) Company-Led Training (CLT) program.
Shaji Mathew, Executive Vice President, Infosys, said, “Our 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.”
The plan to hire 300 locals in Singapore reinforces the company’s commitment to localisation strategy, at a global level. Infosys looks forward to strengthening its presence in Singapore, in pace with the digital transformation journeys of our clients, he added.
