KPMG has announced plans to establish an IT services hub in Vilnius. In a step to consolidate IT functions, the company is looking to hire 10 to 20 specialists in 2021.
A member firm of the KPMG global organization, KPMG in Lithuania and Latvia has recently become part of KPMG Sweden. The merger is part of the company’s business development strategy that seeks to strengthen KPMG’s competitive position in the region as well as enable future investments and continuous digital transformation.
“The new IT competence centre in Vilnius is part of our integration process,” explains Rokas Kasperavičius, CEO at KPMG in Lithuania. “Since KPMG in Sweden, Lithuania and Latvia started to manage the KPMG in 3 different countries together, moving the IT function to Lithuania has emerged as the optimum solution for our newly combined business.”
Lithuania became the chosen site for KPMG’s regional IT centre due to its skilled and multilingual IT talent pool. The new centre will provide back-office IT services for KPMG operations in Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania and other Nordic countries. Along with performing daily IT operations, KPMG’s IT team in Vilnius will work in cybersecurity and data analytics domains.
“The key factor that differentiates KPMG is that it is a services company itself,” says Mr. Kasperavičius. “Working at our competence centre in Vilnius, IT specialists will not only address KPMG internal needs but will also have the opportunity to participate in projects with KPMG clients – key business leaders in different countries.”
KPMG is looking to onboard up to 20 IT professionals by the end of 2021. The company will be hiring IT support specialists, computer infrastructure engineers, cybersecurity and data analysts, and experienced team leaders. With over 200 IT back-office specialists in the Nordics, the company expects to steadily expand its Vilnius IT team to support the growing needs of KPMG in Sweden, Latvia, Lithuania and other countries in the Nordic region.
