IT services provider Logica has added 26 new jobs in its Canberra division, announcing that this will be the first in a series of expansions to "grow the Canberra office" throughout 2010.
The expanding Canberra team will be lead by Paul Sargeant, the company's industry director for government and transport.
"To sustain our current growth and support of our existing government clients, we have recruited a range of highly experienced IT professionals, including project managers and technical architects, with a demonstrated, in-depth understanding of the public sector," said its Asia-Pacific chief Colin Holgate in an announcement today.
Holgate was appointed to lead the Asia Pacific region in February.
In March, Logica won a $5 million contract with the Victorian Government to manage its spatial data. Other contracts included CrimTrac, National Health and Medical Research Council and the Australian Communications and Media Authority.
Logica has around 1000 employees in Australia, according to its website.
