Cubic Transportation Systems is expanding its Stockton Global Operations Centre taking on 110 more staff, two years after the facility’s opening.
The Centre support’s the company’s UK and global projects including city-wide transportation projects in Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, New York and Sydney. The extra staff will include roles for a Senior Systems Automation Engineer, Global Service Centre Manager, Service Desk Technician, Senior Software Engineer and Software Engineers.
“The landmark project in Sydney, which will provide the city with one of the world’s most advanced transport management systems, will be largely managed out of the Stockton office.” said Craig Walton, IT Operations Manager, Cubic Transportation Systems. “Running global projects, continuing to work closely with local universities and the signing of the 10-year lease indicates the faith we have in the region as a strong base of operations now and in the future.”
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “I’ve been following Cubic’s work since first visiting its Global Operations Centre earlier this year. I have been massively impressed with their work and delighted to see that they’ll be employing 100 additional staff. All of their hard work and success has bore fruit with these announcements. They have provided another jobs boost and their new ten-year lease shows a huge vote of confidence in the Tees Valley and our economy. This firm is at the forefront of some really exciting travel innovation and I can’t wait to hear what they have planned for the next ten years – and beyond.”
