Velrada launches recruitment drive

Australian Microsoft partner Velrada has launched a recruitment drive seeking to create at least 60 new positions by the end of the financial year.

The company has launched a national tech skills campaign to recruit more than 20 people per month.

Velrada is also collaborating with Microsoft and the University of Technology Sydney to help create a unique program for developing Microsoft business application skills among young innovators.

Velrada has operations and personnel across Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Major clients include HP, Downer, Red Cross, Rio Tinto, Sodexo and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, APM, and Concern Worldwide.

Velrada Executive Director Jennifer Evans said the recruitment drive will help address Australia’s growing skills shortage, with Deloitte Access Economics estimating that the nation will need 200,000 more technology workers in the next three years.

“Velrada is Microsoft’s fastest-growing partner in Australia and we are committed to driving business transformation, as well as creating our own proprietary technology. But our phenomenal growth trajectory can only be sustained by recruiting the right people,” she said.

“In Australia, Velrada is at the forefront of the digital revolution that is currently underway across the world. COVID has accelerated this tectonic technological shift to the way people work and engage, and this is driving enormous demand for people with technical skills.”
