Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Wednesday said it planned to hire a total of 30,000 people across India, Latin America, the U.S. and Australia, in the next fiscal starting April 1, 2010.

“We are looking at a gross addition of 30,000 in fiscal 2011. About 70 per cent will be freshers and 30 per cent will be experienced professionals,” TCS Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director N, Chandrasekaran, told reporters here.

The IT major said it would maintain its usual ratio between overseas and Indian recruitments while hiring.

“We will be hiring across various concerns like analytics, programme management and so on. About 2,000 will be recruited internationally mostly from Latin America, the US, Australia and other countries,” he said.

During the October-December quarter, TCS had a gross addition of 12,854 employees. Its total headcount across 42 countries stood at about 1,49,000, as of December 31, 2009.

Mr. Chandrasekaran said the IT environment was getting better with every passing month.
