PwC opens office in Jaipur, to hire multiskilled local talent
New Delhi, 28 April 2022:PwC India today announced the opening of its new office in Jaipur, Rajasthan with an aim to tap into the immense talent potential presented by the state. This expansion is in line with the firm’s commitment to create 10,000 additional jobs in the country over the next 5 years, as part of its growth strategy.
Sanjeev Krishan, Chairman, PwC in India said, “Our talent pool is no longer centred in metro cities, and we are looking to leverage the wealth of skilled professionals in other cities too. Jaipur’s rich education system produces a large number of CAs, engineers and management graduates every year. In addition, the city is a hub for a lot of industrial activity within the state, allowing us to get closer to our clients and add value in their growth journey.”
Sanjeev added, “At PwC, our endeavours are aligned with India’s USD 5 trillion aspiration. Providing fulfilling opportunities of employment across the country will be an important step towards achieving this goal, and we are making this an integral part of our growth strategy. Between 2006 and 2017, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities received five times more investments for retail infrastructure than Tier 1 and metro cities, reiterating the promise these cities hold.”
Hailing the state’s burgeoning ecosystem for business growth, Sanjeev emphasised that the Jaipur office is a testament to our commitment to India’s growth story.
The new office in Jaipur will be a flexible, multi-use office serving clients in the region. Apart from Jaipur, the firm is also looking at expanding its operations in Bhubaneshwar. It will also open branch offices in Noida and Thane in the year ahead.
