Dimension Data is looking to recruit 300 new data centre experts around the world over the next 18 months, as it looks to quadruple growth for its data centre business.
The group is seeking staff with data centre skills across Singapore, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, West and East Africa, the UAE, UK, Germany and the US. It is is also building out central teams to focus on ASEAN and Benelux, as well as France.
The move is expected to help Dimension Data quadruple its data centre business from $1bn to $4bn by 2018.
Steve Joubert, Group Executive of Dimension Data’s Data Centre Business Unit, says the company’s success has always been based on the quality of its people.
"Demand for our next-generation data centre skills and services sees Dimension Data growing faster than the market, and we need great people to help us continue this growth," he said.
"As a provider of solutions and services, not an equipment manufacturer, we are dependent on the quality and skill of great people to help us deliver the best service to our clients."
Joubert added: "With recognition and development programmes for our teams around the world that help them grow and excel and the multinational nature and culture of the company, Dimension Data offers excellent growth opportunities for top performers."
"What’s particularly exciting for Dimension Data employees is the fact that, as a member of the NTT Group, we have preferential access to all the greatest innovations from the NTT Innovation Institute, Inc. to drive standards around open stack, cloud, software-defined networking, cyber security and mobility."
