Nucleus Software, provider of lending and transaction banking solutions to global Financial leaders, has set itself a target to hire 500 fresh young engineers from non-metro cities and towns across India till December 2021.
This will be undertaken through its tie-ups with engineering colleges spread across the states of Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka as well as through direct hiring.
Nucleus already has over 50 tie-ups in place and in circa 2021, it will witness another 20 colleges being on-boarded, the company said in a press release. 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 Vishnu Dusad, MD, Nucleus Software.
Nucleus Software currently employs around 2000 people and around 200-250 campus hires are absorbed every year.
