BT to hire more than 400 people in India, China, Middle East and Africa
BT, the world’s leading providers of communications services and solutions, on Thursday announced that it will hire more than 400 people in India, China and other countries from Asia Pacific, Turkey, the Middle East and African countries to accelerate its expansion in high growth markets.
“By hiring more people in the region, launching more competitive capabilities across a larger number of countries and delivering a differentiated service experience, BT will be in a strong position to capture opportunities in a total AMEA market evaluated at around 32 billion GBP”, it said.
Other countries that the company will be focusing on are Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey.
It said that new phase of investments builds on the success of earlier programmes announced in 2010 for the Asia Pacific region and in 2012 for Turkey, the Middle East and Africa.
Earlier this year, BT brought those regions together into a single integrated market unit to better address the needs of a new generation of regional multinationals and big domestic players that are increasingly expanding from China and India into the Middle East and Africa.
It said that new hires will include industry specialists focused on sectors such as logistics, healthcare, consumer packaged goods and financial services, and professional services experts based in 11 countries.
“These hires will be additional to the 600 positions announced earlier this year for BT’s Global Development Centre in Bangalore and to the c.600 hires expected for BT’s new Global Shared Service facility in Kuala Lumpur announced in April”, it said.
