Innowave IT currently has 700 employees on its direct payrolls and another 25,000 on contract-based employment, in India. The demand for talent stems from two factors - continued momentum in the demand for e-governance solutions in India & worldwide besides InnowaveIT’s expansion plans both in India and overseas. In India, the firm has successfully grown beyond Maharashtra, its primary market, into Assam, Odisha, UP, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh. On the global front, the firm recently won a major order in Uganda and is seeing traction in both Africa and the Middle East for its expertise.
Anant Raghute, MD, Innowave IT Infrastructures Ltd, said, "The hiring will be spread over the year though we will initiate the process of identifying and shortlisting the candidates in the first quarter of 2019 itself. We believe e-governance as a segment has come of age and into its own bearing, in India and this will lead to it being seen as a career option in itself by many in the job market. The interesting aspect of e-governance hiring is that it seeks multiple skills – programmers, data entry operators, statistical analysts, GIS experts, consultants, supervisory staff, etc. among others. Indirect or temporary employment creation is another unique facet of e-governance segment. For every direct employee hired, we see that many more are needed on the job to job basis. Getting the right talent into Innowave is essential to its aggressive growth plans both in India and worldwide."
