Telia Global Services Lithuania is planning a new development phase in Vilnius. The company expects to hire up to 400 new employees by 2024, thus increasing the company’s total number of employees to 1,300. Most of the new staff will be IT specialists – software developers, engineers, architects, data analysts, etc.
Bigger teams will allow the Telia group to expand its operational functions in Lithuania. This will be the second-largest expansion phase of Telia Global Services Lithuania since its establishment in 2017.
“Telia’s expansion is a sign of the overall robust growth of Lithuania’s GBS sector,“ says Aušrinė Armonaitė, Lithuanian Minister of the Economy and Innovation. “The fact that such big international companies entrust more complex functions increasingly to Lithuanian teams indicates the sector’s burgeoning maturity. At the same time, it provides an obligation to continuously improve Lithuania’s talent pool, digital infrastructure, and business environment.”
According to Marius Ivanauskas, Head of Group Business Services at Telia Company, the competence centre has earned the company’s trust with innovative solutions, high-quality work, and a clear goal. Moreover, the rapid development shows a strategic approach to Lithuania.
“From the very beginning, our goal was not the number of employees, but the development of competencies, complexity and added value. We aspire to become the most advanced competence centre in the country, creating and developing new digital products and services in all areas of our activities. I am pleased that the Telia group firmly believes that we can do it here in Lithuania. The ongoing expansion marks another maturity milestone for our organization, but this does not change our goal of bringing talents together and giving the country’s specialists more improvement and career opportunities”, Ivanauskas said.
Telia Company competence centre, which employs more than 200 new employees every year, performs various IT, telecommunications network, analytics, software development, procurement, staffing, finance, etc.
