According to the government, the assistance package for DXC — recommended by the Tasmanian Development Board — will help the company expand its delivery centre and help its Tasmanian operation become one of the “leaders in its field in the Australia and New Zealand region”.
Tasmanian treasurer Peter Gutwein said two years ago the government had worked with DXC Technology to relocate from Sydney to Tasmania, creating 50 jobs, and was now working with the company to effectively double its workforce to more than 100.
“Tasmania has an exceptional base of talented and skilled IT workers and the 50 jobs this partnership will create will help provide real career paths for Tasmanians who want to work in the IT field in their home state,” he said.
“Our Centre of Excellence in Hobart is today considered one of the best performing Service Desks within DXC Technology in ANZ. Our aim is to establish it as the premier Service Desk in Australia.
“Through work placement programmes, we have helped build a pathway for TAFE students in Tasmania to gain real world experience and help them deliver more value in the workplace sooner. It will also help us continue to promote and enhance the calibre and skills of Tasmania’s technology workforce.
“Students joining the DXC Service Desk Centre of Excellence will benefit from fantastic career paths in areas including Microsoft dynamics, network management, systems management and desktop engineering.”
