Avanade to create more than 100 jobs with launch of new Adelaide Engineering Hub

In addition to job creation, the new Hub will help address Australia’s skills shortage and improve diversity in the technology sector

ADELAIDE, Australia, April 11, 2022

Avanade today announced the launch of its new Engineering Hub in Adelaide, signaling the company’s increased investment in South Australia. Focused on rapid delivery of Microsoft technology solutions, the Adelaide Engineering Hub is the first of its kind for Avanade in Australia and has already created 50 jobs, with plans to double this number over the next 12 months.

To combat Australia’s technology skills shortage and improve diversity within the sector, Avanade will be recruiting and training early career talent to create opportunities for graduates and trainees, as well as people from outside the technology industry and individuals returning to work after a long break.

As part of this strategy, the company has committed to hiring at least 40% women and aims for a minimum 5% of its local workforce to be made up of Indigenous Australian talent. Additionally, the company has partnered with organizations such as Microsoft, Modis, Goanna Solutions, Generation Australia and MEGT to attract and upskill new consultants. This focus on fostering local talent will also enable Avanade to better serve government and defence clients with strict data sovereignty requirements.

“Adelaide is an exciting city with a booming technology industry. Our Adelaide Engineering Hub will play a key role in shaping the city’s innovation ecosystem, support our clients through a period of accelerated digital transformation, and enable government and businesses alike to rapidly transform their operations,” said Laura Malcolm, Avanade’s Australia General Manager.

“We want to work differently in the Adelaide Hub – creating cross-functional teams that work closely with our clients, enable them to adapt rapidly and move faster from an insight to a product or solution. To do this, we want to cultivate a truly diverse workforce. It doesn’t matter if our new team members are Defence Force veterans, teachers, or airport workers – we’re looking for aptitude and attitude, not a previous job title. Growing our skills to better serve our clients is at the heart of what we do at Avanade, and I’m excited to see the Hub help us achieve our goal of making a genuine human impact for our clients, people and communities,” added Malcolm.

The Adelaide Engineering Hub joins the existing network of Avanade offices in Australia located in Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
