The positions created by the fast growing technology company are a mixture of Project Managers and Operations personnel.
As part of its wider recruitment strategy FNZ hires a number of young people, including graduates, each year. The announcement coincides with the Scottish Government’s Make Young People Your Business Week.
FNZ has experienced significant growth since its inception in 2002 and now employs over 300 at its Tanfield hub. The recruitment drive is in order to support existing business, alongside ensuring the company is well positioned for its next growth stage.
Daniel Kasmir, HR Director at FNZ, said: “FNZ has seen rapid expansion over the past 10 years. During this timeframe we have consistently delivered innovative solutions for our clients. One of the key elements of the success we have seen is down to the recruitment of a talented, hardworking and ambitious team.
“As FNZ continues to expand on a global scale, the need to hire the very best people becomes even more essential in achieving our ambitious growth targets.
“We identified Edinburgh as a city that has an available and talented workforce, which will ensure that we’re able to recruit the right people with the right skills for FNZ to reach the next stage of development as a business.
“FNZ is a fast moving company and recruits can expect quick career progression, opportunities to work on cutting edge technologies and international travel. The average age of an FNZ team member is 25, so it is an extremely vibrant and creative working environment.”
FNZ have a vibrant young workforce and clearly a creative, enthusiastic young person would be very welcome here as the company expands on a global scale.
Speaking after her address to Scotsoft, a key event for the Scottish ICT sector, Minister for Youth Employment Angela Constance said:
“Make Young People Your Business Week kicked off with new jobs for young people in Glasgow and I can’t think of a better way to round it off than the announcement of new opportunities for Edinburgh.
“FNZ clearly do not need to be asked to make young people their business, and nor do hundreds of firms around the country. However, I hope this week has helped raise awareness of the economic benefits of recruiting young people among even more employers.”
Alongside the recruitment drive to fuel growth, the company has also appointed Lord Leitch, current Chairman of Bupa, Founder and Chairman of Intrinsic Financial Services, as Group Chairman. The appointment was made in June 2013.
