IBM last week announced the opening of its new services center in the City of Leicester, UK that will create up to 300 new IT jobs over the next three years.
The IBM Services Center will provide UK based IBM clients with high value application development and maintenance, test and systems management services that address the increasing demand for flexible software capability. UK based businesses can benefit from Cloud, Big Data Analytics, Mobile, Social and Security technologies.
The new service center will create new IT jobs for graduates and experienced professionals who have technical backgrounds or who show an aptitude for IT. IBM in a statement said the center will offer internships and apprenticeships.
“This investment in job creation aims to inspire the next-generation workforce from local technical colleges and universities who will deliver the technology skills needed to drive business innovation in the UK,” said David Stokes, chief executive, IBM UK and Ireland.
