Indian technology company Infosys is increasingly targeting UK graduate recruitment, the BBC has reported.
The company has recently started its second round of UK-based recruitment, having previously taken on 25 computing, engineering and IT graduates in August to receive an initial six months training in India
And Infosys see the process as a chance to recruit in areas it intends to expand its business into in the future.
"We want to hire young people who graduate from all parts of the world," says Mohandas Pai, Infosys' director of human resources and global recruitment. "It's good for our business to hire from the local markets."
The chosen graduates are recruited under the company's Global Talent Program and receive their initial training at the Infosys Global Education Centre in Mysore, India.
India's economy experienced a GDP growth of 9.4 per cent in the period 2006-2007, Economy Watch reports, as well as a ten per cent expansion in its industrial sector, adding to the potential for further UK graduate recruitment opportunities in the country.
