The company said in a statement that it expected to create 150 jobs in what will be its 14th location which would support its operations in the UK, the US and Europe.
The staff in Melbourne will support BJSS' technology, engineering, consulting, cloud, data and artificial intelligence services.
Victorian Treasurer and Minister for Economic Development Tim Pallas welcomed the announcement. “Securing the confidence — and investment — of a global tech company such as BJSS is great news for Victoria,” he said.
BJSS head of International Expansion, Amir Soufizadeh, said: “We’re excited to continue our international expansion by opening our first office in the APAC region. Melbourne provides a significant opportunity for us to develop closer ties with our global clients and establish new relationships with local organisations.
"Melbourne is known as Australia’s technology hub and is home to some of the world’s leading tech talent. We’re looking forward to getting started.”
BJSS was set up in 1993 in Leeds and is a Queen’s Award for Enterprise-winning technology and engineering consultancy with more than 1500 staff.
