Construction of an IT hub at TAFE SA in Adelaide has been commenced by Datacom.

Once the $22 million project is complete, the IT hub at the Tea Tree Gully campus is expected to accommodate more than 600 full-time equivalent staff working in customer care operations and training.

Refurbishment work will be continue in coming months so employees can access the Datacom facility and start comprehensive training programs in the New Year. Service delivery to national clients is estimated to begin in February 2018.

“This new IT hub will offer exciting new career paths for young South Australians and the company is currently advertising roles to be based at the site, including customer service representatives as well as specialist training and management roles,” said Investment and Trade Minister Martin Hamilton-Smith.

“For the hundreds of people about to get a new job at Datacom, many of them in the electorate of Newland, we look forward to them carving out new careers at the national training and operations facility.”

The state government will contribute $5.335 million towards the centre through its Economic Investment Fund.

Datacom provides services across software development, IT management, data centres and cloud services, IT procurement services and customer contact solutions for a range of public and private sector organisations.

The Tea Tree Gully site will provide a range of IT-based services to clients within South Australia and beyond.

Investment Attraction South Australia has worked closely with Datacom in developing this expansion option for their business, facilitating cross-government relationships and supporting the company in the evaluation of potential sites.
