IT services company LogicaCMG is to recruit 1,000 staff in India to support its plan to grow offshore and South Asia operations.
This week, the company opened a new building at the Technopolis, close to Bangalore International Airport which accommodates 1,200 LogicaCMG employees and will have the capability to house 2,200 employees by the end of 2005.
The Bangalore operations are LogicaCMG’s primary offshore development facility for the group.
Speaking at a press conference, Dr Martin Read, group chief executive of LogicaCMG said, "India is the fastest growing operation of LogicaCMG worldwide and will be the third largest operation by headcount after the UK and the Netherlands by the end of 2005. It forms a critical component of our global blended delivery model that we use to provide outsourcing solutions to our clients."
The company’s recent contract wins include a £9.5m deal with the department for International Development to develop and support a document and records management system, and a 10-year outsourcing agreement with Aon UK to provide applications management and development for the insurance company's main business applications.
