Jobs of the future

Salil Parekh, CEO of Infosys, said: “As the talent shortage looms, the events of the past year have exacerbated the need for vital digital skills as companies rapidly accelerated their digital transformation. Bridging the digital divide and making quality digital education accessible to all citizens is key to building a strong future workforce and the UK’s economic recovery. Our commitment to the UK is to support both recovery and growth through digital acceleration, hiring new talent and supporting the development and re-qualification of existing talent to meet the changing needs of economic demand. ”
