Transport for NSW Secretary Rob Sharp said the new roles will give people the opportunity to work in teams and projects utilising technologies that are making huge leaps forward, using bots, apps, AI solutions, autonomous 3D mapping drones, cyber security and transforming cameras across the network.
“We really encourage anyone with an interest in this field to throw their hat in the ring. There has been a 500 per cent increase in training budgets for IT alone and at least 40 per cent of IT jobs don’t require a degree. This is about finding people from all walks of life that are eager to learn in the seat,” said Sharp.
“This is a really exciting time to be working with Transport for NSW. At the moment we are just scratching the surface in how we are pioneering technology to deliver smart, innovative solutions that enable our people to make NSW a better place to live, work and visit.
“If you have a passion for technology, we’re ready to help you develop the skills you need for a long and rewarding career in IT.”
Group Chief Information Officer at Transport for NSW, Richard Host said hiring has commenced on hundreds of new roles based in Sydney and regional NSW, and the roles will create opportunities and career pathways to break down barriers for people considering a career in IT.
“We are looking for people with passion for solving problems, working with people, and for technology. You don’t need the typical IT career trajectory to apply” said Host.
“We give our people access to leading-edge technologies, on-the-job and formal training and flexibility in how and where you work. Everything else you need to succeed can be learnt when you get here.”
