5 UK tech providers ploughed $130M into Australia

Posted January 30th, 2018

James Henderson from ARN published an article today explaining that the collaboration between the UK and Australia in the technology sector reached new heights during 2017, with five UK-based providers investing more than $130 million into the local market.

"Creating 155 jobs in the process, the arrivals of DaXtra Technologies; Quantexa; NCC Group; Contino and Blue Prism headlines an expanding group of UK-based businesses opening offices on local shores.

During the past 12 months, Australia continues to be selected as a regional headquarters for the Asia Pacific region, as new entrants seek to leverage the availability of highly skilled workers, alongside close proximity to lucrative Asian markets."

DaXtra is investing heavily in Asia. In 2017, we opened offices in the Asia Pacific’s most advanced markets, Japan and Australia – and we’ve run our Asia business from Hong Kong for the past five years.

Australia’s economy is undergoing a significant transformation – and that transformation is driving the rapid evolution of the country’s job market. This evolution is creating new opportunities for professionals, and naturally by extension, those of us in the recruitment and recruitment tech sectors. We're delighted to be making a greater commitment and contribution to the local economy and we look forward to a successful year ahead.
