Dell plans to hire more UK staff for its enterprise services division by the end of June 2011.
In the first quarter of 2011, Dell hired 100 staff for its UK offices. Dell had previously hired 190 UK staff in the preceding two quarters. A third of all new recruits were hired for its enterprise and technical solutions and services business division.
Stephen Murdoch, vice-president and general manager of EMEA large enterprise at Dell, confirmed the company was growing its UK team as part of a plan to hire another 800 people across the EMEA region this quarter.
"We are open for business for the best talent in the industry, particularly in enterprise services and solutions. Our hiring plan reflects confidence in our strategy and our desire to hire staff to meet the growing demand we see from our customers in the region," he said.
Murdoch added its intelligent data management service was important for recruitment, as was next-generation hybrid cloud building.
"We're expanding our solutions and services team, bringing in new technology and expertise through acquisition as well as launching new enterprise-led solutions," added Murdoch.
In its Dell's Q1 fiscal 2012 year results, its enterprise solutions and services accounted for 30% of total $15bn sales. Enterprise services sales to large businesses increased 5% to $4.4bn.
Dell is also investing $1bn in cloud computing services in 2011, including UK-based datacentres.
