In recent years, Greece has proved to be an outstanding operational base for major technology companies, which have entered the market to complement and extend their operations in Europe, mainly thanks to the availability of excellent IT talent and highly skilled people. NTT DATA believes Greece is a source of real added value to its business, while further demonstrating its commitment to young talent worldwide. The company aims to seek out great young talent, to invest in their training and development, to bring them into large-scale strategic projects, while also partnering on original research with major universities.
The disembarking of the IT consultancy will also contribute to Greek market development, helping in post-COVID economic recovery, while also creating added value in digitization services delivered internationally, with Greece as an important international base.
To achieve that, NTT DATA is committed to hiring the best talent, with the goal of recruiting more than 100 employees this year and over 400 by 2026. The company offers a flexible working model and the opportunity to work on international projects in a multicultural environment. In addition, the company is ready to share the best practices of a well-known company that has a proven track of success worldwide.
IT Greek talent to enhance the services to International Organizations
