JP Morgan Will Hire 4000 Indian Employees Only In These Skills: Are You Eligible?
JP Morgan will be expanding its Indian workforce which currently stands at 35,000 across its offices in Bengaluru, Mumbai and Hyderabad.
Digital Skills It Is Hiring For
It has plans to hire 4,000 new employees specialising in digital skills and advanced technology such as cloud, big data, AI, machine learning, digital platforms and cybersecurity.
Growing talent in these areas is critical for the investment bank’s client success and business strategy, as explained by HR head Gaurav Ahluwalia.
The new hires will help support the banking giant’s global operations from its centres in India.
Importance Of Techies For JP Morgan
The Bengaluru office will see most of the hiring taking place.
Out of its total workforce of 250,000 employees worldwide, 50,000 of them are technologists.
The firm is banking on technology to directly affect its “productivity, performance and satisfaction” of its clients and employees.
Hence, it continues its investment in technology and the people who specialise in it.
CSR Initiatives: Covid Relief
The firm has also pledged $2 million to the US-India Friendship Alliance and Indian NGOs engaged in an effort to help with India’s pandemic crisis.
The US-India Friendship Alliance is associated with the US-India Strategic Partnership Forum.
This amount would help support small hospitals in terms of capacity and supply chains, giving a boost to India’s public health system.
This will not only help the hospitals serve more and more Covid positive tested patients but will also provide funding for food and essential items to distribute to low-income communities.
It is also initiating a program in which it will match its employees’ contributions 1:1 to certain organisations in support of Covid relief.
CSR Initiatives: Combating Racism
Another noteworthy step in the progressive direction taken by the company includes a $30 billion commitment over a 5-year span.
This amount will go towards improving racial equity in the firm by tackling the obstacles put up by systemic racism, supporting its vulnerable employees and ensuring that recovery is inclusive.
