Jobs to go as DECA downsizes

Training provider DECA to close its Sydney office as part of downsizing plan that includes job losses

July 20, 2011

Training provider DECA will close its Sydney office as part of a downsizing plan that includes job losses.

DECA Acting Chair Neil Aplin says the company can no longer afford to sustain six separate offices and administrations across three states.

As part of an ongoing restructure, Aplin says vehicles will remain in Sydney to accommodate clients, but back office support will come from DECA’s head office in Melbourne.

DECA previously shut its New Zealand branch and recruitment businesses to concentrate on its Australian operations.

"I am pleased to say that the majority of our existing clients are contracted to continue with DECA. This is a move that has been undertaken with much regret. Unfortunately, these changes will involve the loss of a number of jobs in NSW," Aplin says.

"The Board and management recognise the dedication of staff over many years and we look forward to providing our clients with a sustained and improved training service into the future."
