Telia Global Services Lithuania, the competence centre of the Nordic and Baltic telecommnications company Telia is announcing the further expansion in Lithuania. The centre started its activities in Lithuania in 2017 and currently employs more than 500 professionals in the fields of IT, finance, HR, procurement, network engineering and other. By 2023, the company plans to expand its capacity in Vilnius up to 700 employees.
In less than three years, Telia Global Services Lithuania has become an integral part of Telia Company. The team in Vilnius ensures high quality software development, procurement, robotics, data analytics, network engineering and other services provision to the company’s key countries and markets. The Lithuanian branch provides services to the Telia Group, which is considered to be the frontrunner in the digitization of Northern Europe and the Baltic states.
“We are proud to have exceed the expectations of Telia Company in a relatively short period. In just over two years, we have not only consistently increased the number of our employees, but also the number of our functions and their complexity,” Marius Ivanauskas, Head of Telia Global Services Lithuania, said. “We can offer our employees the latest technological tools available on the market, as well as the fact that solutions and services developed by our experts are used directly by our clients within the company inside or at the Telia network. This provides people with additional responsibility and motivates to grow together with the company.
According to Mantas Katinas, General Manager of Invest Lithuania, the growth of Telia Global Services Lithuania will further strengthen Lithuania’s position as a leading ICT services hub in the Northern European region.
“Telia, which stands out with its modern approach to the services and business models, quickly captured Lithuania’s potential. We are pleased to see that the company has confidence in Lithuanian talents and develops high-level technological products in Lithuania, continuously encouraging innovation within the company. Telia is not only one of the strongest telecommunications service providers in the region. At the current growth rate, the company’s centre of excellence, in a few years, will become one of the largest among such centres in the country.”
Telia has already invested over EUR 1.4 billion in building its telecommunications services and infrastructure in Lithuania.
