Boeing to Create 250 Jobs in Adelaide

250  much needed jobs are to be created in Adelaide with aviation giant Boeing to set up a new Adelaide CBD hub.

Premier Jay Weatherill and Boeing will today sign an agreement that has been secured through the state’s investment attraction agency and Defence SA.

Five of the workers will be relocated from Queensland but the rest will be new hires.

The SA Government is refusing to reveal how much was paid out of its $26 million economic investment fund to lure Boeing, saying the transaction details are “commercial in confidence”.

Mr Weatherill will sign a deed with Boeing managing director Darren Edwards today and the company’s new Currie St office is scheduled to officially open in the coming week.

The 250 jobs in SA will be added over five years and include project managers, systems designers, software engineers and researchers conducting aircraft support.

There will also be staff involved in research and development, product support and systems integration.

The South Australian jobs  will come as work is expected to ramp up on new shipbuilding and submarine construction at Techport, but as carmaker Holden later this year shuts its doors.

The company employs 140,000 people across the globe.
