PwC Australia is expanding its presence in South Australia as they launch a Skilled Service Hub in Adelaide, the hub will create 300 new highly skilled jobs within 18 months. Due to open in July 2021, the hub will initially provide highly skilled delivery capabilities in cybersecurity, cloud and financial audit services.
“The initial focus of the centre is on cyber, cloud and financial audit services and this is a reflection of the high market need due to the skills shortage exacerbated by border closures. We expect to see significant growth over the first 3-5 years of the centre with a blend of experienced technical and managerial staff as well as a strong pipeline of junior staff with relevant technical qualifications,” said Tom Seymour, CEO of PwC Australia.
Jamie Briggs, Managing Partner of PwC Australia’s Adelaide office, said, “The South Australian Government has a strong focus on cybersecurity as an area of economic growth, making Adelaide the new destination for innovation. Its bold yet cool vibe makes it the city Australians want to work in, whether they live in or out of state. It is opening up new and different prospects for resourcing and helping to build Australia’s workforce of the future.
