ADROITA has been awarded a Jobs Plus grant by the New South Wales Government to assist them to expand their service offering.
Defence sector engineering, professional services, and business advisory consultancy ADROITA will receive New South Wales Government Jobs Plus support to assist them to expand their service offering in the state. The female-led and veteran-owned company is based in Sydney, with employees in Canberra, Melbourne, Wollongong, and Adelaide.
ADROITA will use the Jobs Plus support to assist them to develop a New South Wales-based Defence-digital engineering capability with a globally competitive service offering that will include model-based systems engineering, digital sovereign test and evaluation, modelling and simulation, digital twin development, and other advanced data analytics such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and decision support.
The company anticipates that the grant will create more than 30 new skilled jobs over the next two years and improve the productivity of the NSW economy by leading the transition to digital engineering—an emerging body of disciplines that underscores several of the global megatrends identified in the NSW Government’s NSW 2040 Economic Blueprint—while also making an economic contribution through innovation, research and development, and by creating a career pathway for engineers and technologists.
“Digital Engineering is to the engineer what Industry 4.0 is to the manufacturer. Digital engineering requires the integration of modern digital enterprise systems with data driven techniques such as decision support and data engineering, modelling and simulation and digital systems engineering, to provide a modern, integrated approach to manage the lifecycles of complex defence systems from concept through to disposal,” said CEO of ADROITA, Ms. Sarah Pavillard.
“This will enable ADROITA to unlock and utilise big data to deliver more bang for buck and decision-making superiority to our clients, while also creating a new highly skilled, technically-capable, and well-paid future workforce whose skills may translate to other emergent sectors such as space.”
NSW Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade Alister Henskens said Jobs Plus is unlocking the enormous potential of home-grown businesses, as well as attracting global heavyweights to expand in our state, which will help to drive the NSW economy forward in line with our long-term economic plan.
“These jobs will boost the state’s thriving economy, help to develop even more world-leading products, and cement NSW as Australia’s innovation capital,” Mr Henskens said.
