Indian IT outsourcing firm Infosys has said it will create 1200 jobs in Australia, with about 40% to be for Australian university graduates, and set up three innovation hubs in the country.

The initiatives were announced by the company's senior vice-president for Australia and New Zealand, Andrew Groth, at Infosys' North Sydney office. Present was Industry, Science and technology Minister Karen Andrews.

Groth also announced that Infosys would beef up the partnership it has with academic institutions to attract the best talent.

“The expansion of our Australian team, together with our planned Innovation Hubs are very important as we help navigate our clients in their digital journey by simultaneously renewing their core business systems and building new solutions to realise growth," said Groth.

“Continuous education is a collective effort and we are proud to work with the government, academia and local communities to help build and shape our next-generation of entrepreneurs and innovators.

“Infosys has a deep culture of continuous learning and development. We have the largest corporate university in the world and also offer our people access to sophisticated on-demand online learning platforms. In addition, through our academic partnerships worldwide, our people also have access to Massive Open Online Courses learning and university courses.

“Building our Australian talent pool is already underway. So far, we have recruited 75 graduates, and more than half have completed their induction training and are ready to be placed on strategic client projects.

"Under this program, graduates start their Infosys learning journey in our Sydney and Melbourne training centres. They can choose from high demand areas, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, user experience, cyber security, cloud and big data.”
