UST Global opens new centre in Manila

Plans to hire 1,000 IT Professionals in next 12 months

By CBR Staff Writer

UST Global, an IT and BPO services company, has opened an offshore development centre in McKinley Hills, Manila, in a move to cater to its clients in North America and Europe.

The company said that in accordance with its expansion plans across Asia, it has plans for a considerable increase in the resource strength of the Manila centre. It seeks to hire around 1,000 IT professionals at the new centre over the next 12 months as part of its first phase of expansion. It expects the workforce growing to more than 5,000 IT professionals over the next few years.

UST Global said that it has come to Manila after recognizing the Philippines as an emerging destination for IT outsourcing and identifying the potential rate of development in the region.

Joe Nalkara, president of UST Global, predicts that the Philippines centre will be a strategically significant geographical and business location for the growing Asian presence of UST Global.
