NSW Scrambles For IT Workers Amid National Shortage
The NSW Government is hiring more than 200 digital specialists, most of them product engineers as the State ramps up its IT-delivered services.
Minister for Digital and Customer Service Victor Dominello said the NSW Government boasts one of the largest digital workforces in the country, and this additional investment would ensure the continued delivery of a world-class customer experience.
The roles include 135 IT professionals with advanced software, data and salesforce skills and 70 content, service and product designers.
Service NSW is currently working on digitisation of vocational licences and other transactions, including moving towards an integrated authorisation model of government that securely shares details across different government agencies and departments with consent.
“In order for us to compete for tech talent with the private sector, we need to demonstrate to graduates that the NSW public service is a dynamic, fast-paced and rewarding place to work,” Dominello said.
He said the NSW Government is offering tech graduates the opportunity to work on a huge pipeline of transformational, customer-facing digital products and services.
