Oracle has announced it will create 1,000 new jobs in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The technology company said it is hunting for the next generation of "ambitious, driven, digitally" savvy sales representatives to support the growth of Oracle’s cloud computing business.

The move comes on the back of the company recently posting record financial results with total cloud revenue up 58 percent.

Oracle is now the fastest growing scaled cloud company and is predicting its cloud business will accelerate into hyper-growth in the current year.

Europe, the Middle East and Africa accounted for 28 percent of Oracle’s overall revenue last year, but sales in the region declined 2 percent last year to $10.6 billion.
Public-cloud spending is expected to grow 27 percent annually to reach $82 billion by 2020, according to research firm IDC.

"We want to offer 1,000 talented individuals the opportunity to change their career for the better, to access the best possible training and development, as well as the chance to accelerate their career within the fastest growing cloud company at the centre of a generational shift to digital enablement.”
