Datacom creates 650+ new jobs in Adelaide

IT Service Provider, Datacom, is to create more than 650 new jobs in South Australia, when it opens its second Customer Service Hub in the state later this year.

The roles will provide essential services for Datacom’s government clients as well as customer support services for the company’s private sector clients.

Premier Steven Marshall said the announcement is a major win for the local and state economy and would help bridge the unemployment gap in the aftermath of COVID-19.

“Investments like this will be critical to kickstart our economy following the impact of COVID-19,” Premier Marshall said.

Datacom Managing Director Stacey Tomasoni said the new facility in Noalunga will model the success of the Modbury site, established almost three years ago. A large portion of Modbury’s 1200 workforce had been unemployed prior to their appointment, undergoing significant training and continuous development to meet the requirements of the role.

“At Modbury, we offer opportunities to not only those who were previously unemployed but also for others looking to enter into a new career in an industry that is growing and evolving rapidly,” Tomasoni said.

“With the new centre at Noarlunga we will continue to work alongside our clients and partners to ensure we can offer employment opportunities for those who need them while maintaining our high standards of support for our customers.”

Datacom was recognised for its contribution to the state’s employment push by winning the coveted Industry Collaboration award at The SA Training Awards last year.
