Executive Summery

Hi-Tec is one of the fast growing international companies founded in the mid -1980s in the USA. Head quoted in the UK and employees over 30000 people in 60 counties and generating a massive $19 Billion annual turnover. I-Tec specialises in the provision of computer hardware and software solutions to cooperate sector and capitalize on their use of the internet. It provides both standard and bespoke solutions to customers. The key competency of the business is its ability to innovate in highly specialised and competitive markets it operates.

The company pays top rate salaries, annual bonus, discounted stocks, pension, health and life insurance to its employees with a very attractive working environment.

1.1.2Advertisements in national newspapers
