Proffesional services firm Ernst & Young (EY) would hire 2000 employees to strengthen its digital services, according to sources. 

The staff will mostly be hired for new age domains such as artificial intelligence, analytics, intelligent automation, blockchain and tax technology, besides big automation projects for the government and the private sector, the report stated. 

“There is significant capital available for new startups and big Indian companies are investing in digital,” Ram Sarvepalli, leader, advisory services India and partner, emerging markets centre at EY told the publication. 

Sarvepalli further stated that regulatory changes such as the introduction of goods and services tax (GST) and e-filing and automation of central and state government departments have opened up a huge opportunity as well as the need to recruit digital talent. 

“Digital governance and citizen services are themes that almost every state is focusing on. As Aadhaar 2.0 comes in, there will be big projects and opportunities for citizen services,” he said.
