With the aim to serve local and global clients, Indian technology consulting major HCL announced its entry into Vietnam. From its first delivery centre in Vietnam's capital Hanoi, the company will deliver advanced technology solutions to its global client base across several industries and verticals, including banking and financial services, healthcare, infrastructure, engineering and cybersecurity, said a statement.
The company informed that it had begun its business operations in Vietnam in July 2020 and plans to hire over 3,000 local university graduates and experienced professionals over the next 3 years.
A key part of the company's business and development strategy in Vietnam will be to provide the right skilling and platforms to train graduates for career opportunities in hi-tech domains and provide them with the requisite exposure of working on global assignments, said a senior executive.
To kick start its operations in the country, HCL is organising virtual Job Fair for college graduates and experienced professionals from December 19, 2020.
“We are excited to begin our operations in Vietnam,” said Sanjay Gupta, Corporate Vice President, HCL Technologies. “We are fully prepared and committed in bringing new opportunities for both young and experienced talent, to work for a leading global technology company without having to move out of their home country.
“Vietnam and its skilled youth have the true potential to develop a robust IT industry, which is spearheading economic growth in the country. With our approach to valuable partnerships and our ideapreneurship culture, we are aiming to provide the best-in-class digital innovation and support to our global clients with the help of the local talent pool. A career at HCL is about hi-tech opportunities, continuous learning and progression. We are looking forward to hiring the highly skilled and talented people of Vietnam,” he added.
Speaking about the partnership, Vice Minister Phan Tam, Ministry of Information and Communications, said, “I'm delighted that a global company like HCL Technologies will kick start its operations in Vietnam. I am confident that the kind of world-class platform and exposure this company will be providing to our talented resources through its global delivery centre will help in nurturing and building skills that are much needed in today's digital age. Adopting a new education model with online platform approach will accelerate upskilling and reskilling training for local resources.”
