Sept 19, 2016 (LBO) – London Stock Exchange Group said its Business Services division (LSEG BSL) in Sri Lanka has completed the first stage of its set-up operations, with over 100 tech sector professionals recruited.
Set up in May 2016, the new 26,000 sq ft technology centre at Expert City in Maradana, will be manned by 400 high-technology professionals once it becomes fully operational by the end of 2016.
LSEG recently completed the first of two large-scale recruitment drives planned for this month at its Incubation Centre at Expert City.
Attracting the interest of a significant number of local IT professionals, these recruitment drives are led in Sri Lanka by Symon Hughes, a London-based LSEG recruitment veteran.
“Our efforts are aimed at ultimately filling 400 new technology job roles at our new facility at Expert City,” Symon Hughes said.
“We are very impressed with the quality of applicants that we have seen so far and are excited to provide opportunities to advance the local IT industry.”
The group says the next stage of recruitment is currently in progress, with interested parties being encouraged to visit the LSEG global website.
