CapGemini, the world leader in consulting, technology services and digital transformation, as well as the second largest employer of the business services sector in Poland, has opened its next centre in a new location. Lublin joins the branches in Kraków, Warsaw, Wrocław, Poznań, Katowice and Opole.
"The Lublin IT sector has recorded one of the highest increases in the number of companies in this sector in Poland. Our city has a rich educational background with many universities educating students on IT faculties. Potential investors are offered highly qualified IT specialists, which guarantees a fast and efficient recruitment process. I am always happy that new investors emphasise the choice of our city due to the dynamic development of Lublin", said Krzysztof Żuk, Mayor of Lublin.
Today, almost 5500 thousand students study at 5 IT faculties in Lublin's universities, and over 900 graduates of IT and related faculties leave their walls every year. Moreover, almost 6500 international students from over 90 countries who speak their mother tongue.
"For Capgemini, the choice of Lublin is a natural path of development on the Polish market. Among the decisive factors were the city's specialisation in the IT sector, high availability of qualified staff and people with appropriate language skills, or a well-developed ecosystem of links between companies and their business and academic environment. Recruitment is already underway; currently, we have a plan to employ over 100 people, and the first people will start working in mid-February. To our team we are looking for open, communicative and committed people to whom we will provide induction training, including technological training, and the possibility of further development within our organisation", said Dominika Kowalska, Vice President, Head of Eastern Europe Managed Services.
In Lublin, Capgemini will open a technical support department for Cloud Infrastructure Services customers. Branches of this type are already located in Kraków, Katowice and Opole. Over 2300 specialists work there, providing services in 20 languages for customers from all over the world.
"We are looking for people who speak fluent English, German, French and Dutch. We are open to newcomers as well as specialists with experience in the field of IT, especially in infrastructure, systems and process management. What distinguishes us as a company? First of all, a great working atmosphere, great diversity in terms of development opportunities, while maintaining high standards of work. The development of our employees is critical to us – says Barbara Makowska, Global HR Business Partner.
Capgemini has leased nearly 900 sqm of space in the Lublin CZ Office Park. The company started its operations in the city in the first quarter of 2019, and now, due to the rapid increase in employment, has moved to an 888.63 sqm office with 129 workplaces.
