Global IT firm to create 250 jobs with new Birmingham base
Hexaware Technologies, an Indian-owned global IT and digital solutions provider, has started the next phase of its UK expansion with a new facility in Birmingham, aiming to create 250 jobs.
A pilot facility was completed by Hexaware in Birmingham earlier this year, to provide on-site support for customers.
Increased demand in areas like application operations, End-User Computing (EUC) services, and service desk support has led Hexaware to intensify its growth in the West Midlands, diversifying its service portfolio.
The onboarding process for more than 60 local employees has begun, with plans to actively seek additional talent.
The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) skills team is supporting Hexaware’s recruitment drive, facilitated by the West Midlands Growth Company (WMGC).
Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, said: “Last year’s trade mission to India helped us to further strengthen our region’s economic ties with this dynamic nation on the rise – as discussions advance around a new Free Trade Agreement between the UK and India.
“India is now one of our region’s leading sources of foreign direct investment, and now the West Midlands Growth Company (WMGC) is spearheading our international strategy to further strengthen our reputation as the UK’s leading FDI recipient outside of London. This important investment announcement from Hexaware a year on from our trade mission is a fantastic result. I’m pleased that Hexaware has made this commitment, and I look forward to seeing them go from strength to strength here – supported by our world-class STEM talent base and strengths in innovation.”
Councillor John Cotton, leader of Birmingham City Council, said: “Birmingham is a hub of educational excellence, housing multiple institutions that consistently rank among the world’s top 100 universities. Our city is not only home to these world-class universities, but it also offers an exceptional environment for both local and international students and skilled professionals. With this expansion, Birmingham presents a unique opportunity to students and professionals alike to acquire invaluable industry experience through work placements with Hexaware, contributing to the needs of their global clientele.”
