The South African government has been keen to boost the It sector in the country, with IT spending estimated to increase from $10.7 billion in 2011 to about $17.4 billion in 2015.

“To tap the large pool of IT educated graduates, Wipro plans to initiate campus recruitment drives and establish training and skills development programmes,” said Manoj Punja, Senior Vice President and Head of Focus Markets and Global Sales Operations.

“These recruits will then undergo a competency evaluation test and be deputed on projects accordingly."
