Dimension Data ramps up recruitment drive

Seeking to recruit 170 personnel

Dimension Data, a specialist IT services and solution provider, has announced a significant Australian recruitment drive, with plans to recruit more than 170 additional personnel over the next six months. This follows the addition of 80 new staff last quarter. 

Dimension Data CEO Steve Nola explained that the success of the company’s managed services and outsourcing business is the main driver for the new administrative and technical positions.

“We have additional roles to fill across the country, especially along the eastern seaboard, in Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney.  We’re looking for an extensive range of technical staff to join Dimension Data.”

Although he recognises that there’s a looming IT skills shortage, Nola believes that the company’s reputation as one of the country’s best employers will entice people to the positions.

“Throughout the turbulent times of 2009 we continued our commitment to the company’s learning and development program. We focus a lot of energy on ensuring that we deliver value to our people, respond to feedback and reward performance. Our people are the core of our business and investing in the team has proved to be the cornerstone of this ongoing success,” he continued.

In 2010 Dimension Data was named as a coveted ‘Hewitt Best of the Best Employer in Australia and New Zealand in 2009’. This award positions the company as one of just three employers chosen by Hewitt from the group of accredited Best Employer organisations.

“We are extremely proud to be recognised as a Best of the Best Employer. It’s particularly rewarding because it’s based on the genuine feedback of our staff, and shows that our people-focused strategy really works,” concluded Nola.
