Deloitte Australia and La Trobe University have joined forces to open a new Digital Operations Centre, located at the university’s Bendigo campus.

The centre will offer a “digital backbone” to Deloitte Australia’s clients while providing hands-on work experience to both students and workers looking to transition into ICT careers. The centre will also provide work opportunities in the local area for workers and graduates, where digital skills are in demand.

“The need for digital innovation has never been greater, and the opening of the new Digital Operations Centre in partnership with Deloitte reflects La Trobe’s commitment to producing highly employable graduates who can immediately address critical digital and technology workforce shortages,” said Professor John Dewar AO, La Trobe University vice-chancellor, in a statement.


“We are very proud of our deep connections to the Bendigo community and our commitment to world-class education in regional Australia.”

Dennis Krallis, Deloitte’s chief transformation officer, said the partnership illustrates Deloitte’s commitment to the region.

“The Digital Operations Centre will provide a visible sign and commitment to building digital skills in the region, with the centre to open in the first half of 2024 with a goal of growing to 200 new employment opportunities,” Krallis said.

“This brand new centre enhances our ability to support our clients through technology-led transformation and to realise the opportunities that technology-driven change presents for key sectors and industries.”
