Accenture will be recruiting for the new center, which will have capacity for 1,100 seats. In addition, the company will offer opportunities for experienced Accenture professionals across levels and technology specialties to relocate to Gurgaon.

The Accenture delivery center in Gurgaon is Accenture’s sixth city presence in India, joining others in Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune, which together serve more than 200 Accenture clients. Through its Global Delivery Network, Accenture has grown its headcount in India significantly over the past three years, from fewer than 4,000 in 2003 to more than 19,000 as of May 2006.

“Our employees here will work seamlessly with their colleagues around the world, sharing the same training, methodology, tools and metrics to ensure consistent, high-quality services for our clients,” he added.

“Launching a facility in Gurgaon is being driven by two factors,” said Sandeep Arora, lead executive, Accenture Delivery Center for Technology in India. “First, we continue to see very strong client demand for Accenture’s services from India. Second, we believe we can fulfil that demand with the large pool of high-quality technical and professional talent in the city.”
