SuperConcepts has grown its business with a new office in Adelaide, as parent company AMP cuts staff elsewhere.
Backed by support from the State Government, the office was opened by the Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, the Hon David Ridgway.
“SuperConcepts’ decision to expand its Adelaide workforce is a great win for our state and a vote of confidence in our financial and business services sector,” Ridgway said.
Lara Bourguignon, SuperConcepts chief executive, thanked the SA Government for their support and collaboration.
“We chose to settle the bulk of our SMSF operations staff here in Adelaide in large part due to the competitive conditions that the SA Government offers,” Bourguignon said.
“The Business Plan that we devised with the Department of Trade, Tourism and Investment has seen SuperConcepts exceed our performance tracking with 113 full time staff today.
“These indicators put us well on track for meeting the requirements to employ a projected 140 FTE [full-time equivalent] by 2021,” Bourguignon said.
SuperConcepts had also announced a new internship program with the University of Adelaide.
“Through our new partnership with the University we’ll be offering two accounting students a 10-week internship with SuperConcepts,” Bourguignon said.
