TransUnion’s new global capability centre to boost jobs in SA

TransUnion creates jobs with a virtual global capability centre in South Africa.

TransUnion has announced the opening of a new global capability centre in South Africa. The move will provide support to clients globally and create numerous new jobs in the process.

The new centre is part of a wider TransUnion Global Capability Centre initiative, which launched in  Chennai, India, in 2018 and already employs more than 900 talented professionals.

The new virtual centre will be headed by veteran business process outsourcing (BPO) executive Avesh Singh and will support TransUnion’s global operations, giving the company access to the best technology, operations and other talent needed to deliver on core capabilities with scale and speed.

“TransUnion’s ongoing global growth relies on a flexible, scalable, always-on workforce available anywhere in the world. The South Africa centre is a foundational investment that will foster greater diversity, the development of new skills, enable innovation and deliver value for the organisation and the clients and consumers it serves. South Africa has a wealth of talent and our investment recognises the strength and depth within the local market,” said Avesh.

Global capability centres across multiple continents allow TransUnion to benefit from time zones and leverage talent globally. The  centres also support the company’s operational resilience and improve its global operating model.

“As a truly global information and insights company we must facilitate trust in a faster and more efficient manner than ever before to help businesses compete today and in the future,” said Eric Hess, TransUnion’s executive vice president for global operations. “Our virtual South Africa capability centre will allow us to drive innovation and cutting-edge solutions by accessing the best and brightest talent available – wherever it may be located in the country. TransUnion has a long history of investing in its presence in Africa and we’re delighted to be deepening our capabilities across the continent.”

TransUnion Africa was recently named as a Top Employer in South Africa for 2021 by the Top Employers Institute.
