An Indian company says it is to hire 1,000 new staff in the UK to help it meet a surge in demand for digital services.
Infosys, the listed software exporter, said it would ramp up its UK presence over the next three years in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.
It explained that the pandemic had “exacerbated” the need for digital skills and infrastructure, such as cloud technology, as businesses continue to adapt to new ways of working following over a year of disruption.
