Privately owned Scottish telecommunications software developer Kingston SCL has announced major expansion plans in a bid to cash in on the burgeoning global communications market.
KSCL, which was the subject of a management buyout from its former parent, the Hull based telco Kingston Communications, in July last year, has launched a new billing software suite, Jupiter Solutions.
KSCL expects to recruit an additional 1000 staff over the next three years on the back of strong demand for the product.
A spokesman for KSCL said it had just secured its first Jupiter customer, an unnamed European telco, and had several more deals in the offing.
Half the new jobs will be based at the company's Edinburgh headquarters, with the remainder in Leeds, Paris, Hong Kong, Munich and New Delhi.
The positions will cover all areas including sales, software development, technical support and management, as well as research and development.
KSCL customers include BT Cellnet and France Telecom Mobiles.
