NSW Premier and Minister for Western Sydney Mike Baird today announced more than 1,800 public servants are set to move to Parramatta, in a major jobs boost for Western Sydney.
Under the plan, all Department of Education staff currently working in the Sydney CBD will move to offices at Parramatta.
“Western Sydney is the economic powerhouse of NSW and the NSW Government is doing everything possible to further strengthen this dynamic region,” Mr Baird said.
“The relocation of these 1,800 jobs will provide another massive boost to the Western Sydney economy and further cement Parramatta’s position as Sydney’s second CBD.
“This move will provide even more opportunities for Western Sydney residents to work closer to where they live, which will reduce congestion across the city.”
The first Department of Education staff will move into the Parramatta premises in 2018 and the transfer will be complete by mid-2020.
