Chinese outsourcer sets up at Uni of Wollongong

Pactera looking for on-campus hires

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The University of Wollongong is to play host to a development facility of Chinese outsourcing provider Pactera.

Pactera, the offspring of a merger between VanceInfo Technologies and HiSoft Technology International, is taking 450 square metres of on-campus commercial space for software development, testing and support.

Michael McCann, developer of Pactera's “Wollongong Nearshore Development Centre”* the company expects to recruit 35 staff by the end of 2014, with space in the centre for a further 15 staff if required.

He added that with 1,000 IT graduates each year, the University of Wollongong will give the company access to a talent pipeline. Pactera will be offering internship opportunities to UOW students, and McCann hopes that staff recruited while studying will later be interested in transferring to other Pactera offices in Asia.

In November 2012, Pactera received $AUD1.48 million from the Illawarra Region Innovation and Investment Fund run by the NSW government, commonwealth government and BlueScope Steel.

The company is on an international expansion drive at the moment. In April, it announced plans to create a divisional headquarters in Charlotte, with an associated 200 jobs. ®

*Don't blame me, I agree. Whoever coined “Nearshore” as a partner for offshore and right-shoring deserves whatever happens to them in the afterlife. ®
