Following its acquisition of Sun Microsystems two years ago, the company made hundreds of redundancies in Europe as the recession took bite. However, the firm has been buoyed by continued growth in its core database market and related growth in the cloud computing market.
Oracle is on the look out for graduates, senior sales staff and pre-sales consultants, among others.
Alan Hartwell, vice president for technology solutions at Oracle UK, said: "We work with some of the largest and most innovative companies in the world and need people who are excited by the challenges that brings."
Oracle currently employs around 22,000 in the EMEA region.
According to the latest jobs report from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG, contractors working on software from Oracle rival SAP are in short supply.
Overall, the report found that IT and computing jobs, as well as engineering and construction jobs, were the most sought-after, although demand for staff across all sectors grew at its slowest pace for eight months.
