Bengaluru, Jul 7 (FN Agency) IT firm Nucleus Software on Wednesday said that it would hire 500 fresh young engineers from non-metro cities and towns across the country by the end of 2021. This will be undertaken through its tie-ups with Engineering Colleges spread across the states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand as well as through direct hiring. In the state of Karnataka, Nucleus will undertake the recruitment drive in Bengaluru and Mysore, the IT company said in a statement.
Nucleus already has over 50 tie-ups in place and in circa 2021, it will witness another 20 Colleges being on-boarded. These young graduates will then be trained in an intensive 6 to 12 weeks program by Nucleus School of Banking Technology(NSBT) on cutting edge technology for the global Financial sector to make them industry ready. “We at Nucleus firmly believe in the demographic dividend that the youth of our country can provide, given the right opportunity and exposure. Engineering graduates from smaller towns and cities have a lot to offer, but their potential is usually left untapped because most corporates do not hire from smaller colleges. We are happy to provide an opportunity to talented young engineers from across India so that they not just get a level playing field but actually thrive,” says Mr Vishnu Dusad, MD, Nucleus Software.
