Dimension Data, a $6.7 billion global services and solutions provider, has announced it will hire an additional 300 data center experts over the next 18 months. This is vital to the group’s ambition to quadruple its data center business from $1 billion to $4 billion by 2018. In addition, Dimension Data also intends to make data center-focused acquisitions to build out skills and drive scale in major growth markets.
Dimension Data will be recruiting across: Singapore, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, West and East Africa, the UAE, UK, Germany and the US. The Group is also building out central teams to focus on ASEAN and Benelux, as well as France.
“Demand for our next-generation data center skills and services sees Dimension Data growing faster than the market, and we need great people to help us continue this growth,” said Steve Joubert, Group Executive of Dimension Data’s Data Center Business Unit. “As a provider of solutions and services, not an equipment manufacturer, we are dependent on the quality and skill of great people to help us deliver the best service to our clients.”

“With recognition and development programs for our teams around the world that help them grow and excel and the multinational nature and culture of the company, Dimension Data offers excellent growth opportunities for top performers,” added Joubert. “What’s particularly exciting for Dimension Data employees is the fact that, as a member of the NTT Group, we have preferential access to all the greatest innovations from the NTT Innovation Institute, to drive standards around OpenStack, cloud, software-defined networking, cyber security and mobility.”
Joubert points out that Dimension Data continues to make big investments in a number of new consulting, managed and cloud hosting services to enable its clients to do things better and faster in the data center. “This is why we want to hire the best people available in the market: to enable our clients with the best possible solutions and to drive our data center business forward.”
