Dimension Data Australia has today announced its decisions to make 76 Australian jobs redundant and move them to India.

The company has confirmed the losses, and said in a statement that "specialist client services" would continue to be offered to local companies in Australia.

"Dimension Data Australia is aligning with the global Central Delivery Organisation (CDO) resulting in the retrenchment of 76 people from our support delivery team," it said. "We are providing support and resources to assist our staff through this transition."

ZDNet understands the roles are being shifted to the company's hub in Bangalore.

Last year, the South Africa-headquartered Dimension Data picked up Australian enterprise IT consultancy company Oakton, in a cash deal worth AU$171 million.

While its Australian workforce is dwindling, Dimension Data announced in the US overnight that it was opening a new office in Salt Lake City, where it has quadrupled its presence in the market since October 2014. Dimension Data has been operating under the Nexus brand in the area, which the purchased in an undisclosed deal in April last year.
