In the space of 10 months, global technology consultancy firm MTX Group has staked a national presence in Australia as it plans to invest into further scale and growth across the Asia Pacific region.
The US-based company, which officially launched its Adelaide service hub last May, now has a presence in Perth, Melbourne, Hobart, Sydney, Canberra, Gold Coast, Brisbane and New Zealand.
Over that time, MTX claims to have created more than 75 new tech jobs across digital platforms, data and analytics, change management and managed services practices for its clients which range from government agencies to private companies.
Moving forward, MTX Australia and New Zealand CEO Ben Papps said the company will expand its industry-leading trainee program across Australia, building on the initial program already underway in Adelaide.
Further, the CEO hopes to build MTX’s presence in key vertical business segments aiming to deliver the benefits of its model to companies looking to realise the potential of their technology investments.
“MTX is disrupting the market with high-quality, fast-moving, outcomes-focussed transformation,” Papps said.
“We put people first in everything we do, ensuring that our projects and culture generate positive impact for our clients, their customers and the communities we serve.”
Expansion in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific builds on MTX’s existing presence and track record in North America and India.
“Businesses are alive to the digital opportunity but in too many cases are frustrated by complexity and unrealised ambition,” Papps said.
“They know digital platforms and effective use of data can help address key challenges like sustainability, employee health, safety and wellbeing and better customer experience, but too often they’re held back by underutilised or poor-fitting infrastructure or just not knowing where to start.
“Our job is to lead our clients on a journey with technology that evolves with their business needs and continues to deliver positive outcomes over time.”
The company’s trainee program in Adelaide has already seen the company re-skill a variety of workers from a former chef, to a research scientist and a marketing assistant, giving them the ability to pursue a career in tech.
MTX hopes that the program will benefit workers, considering the industry will be supporting more than 1 million jobs in Australia by 2025, according to the Tech Council of Australia.
“We’re highly conscious of the industry-wide impact of skills shortages and proud to be taking a proactive and practical role to address the challenge,” Papps said.
“By putting a high value on diverse experience and life balance we’re actively recruiting trainees into the sector and accelerating career growth for others.
“New job creation is a key part of our strategy to expand the impact of tech in the community while supporting our scale and growth across the country.
