Major National Firm to expand presence in Darwin

NT Government

The Northern Territory’s national significance as a strategic economic and business link has driven Australia’s largest professional services firm, PwC Australia, to expand its local presence and open a new office in the heart of Darwin.

The Darwin waterfront location will be the new home for PwC’s Indigenous Consulting business along with an expanded PwC Integrated Infrastructure team.

These teams will work hand in glove to provide expert advisory services for government, industry and community clients across the Territory, helping to boost economic activity and plan and deliver key infrastructure and social outcomes, which will enhance the lives of locals and visitors.

PwC currently employ 16 local Territorians, with that number set to expand.

PwC has been undertaking work in the Territory for a number of years, including advising on projects such as the Adelaide River Offstream Water storage project, and Tennant Creek to Darwin Corridor.

Quotes attributed to Chief Minister Natasha Fyles:

“The Territory is taking off, with $40 billion worth of major projects in the pipeline.

“We are home to some of the most unique opportunities when it comes to work, business and investment, and we are seeing this reflected in major national firms like PwC moving a premises to Darwin.”

Quotes attributed to PwC Australia Chief Executive Officer Tom Seymour:

“Darwin’s proximity to Asia makes it an essential business link for both the private and public sectors.

“We believe there is a considerable pipeline of work building in the Territory, particularly in defence, resources and energy, agriculture, tourism and social infrastructure. Projects in these sectors will drive growth and help the NT Government achieve its goal of building a $40 billion economy by 2030.

“The Territory also has strong defence ties and credentials, which will become more and more important as Australia seeks to cement its role in the AUKUS alliance. Growing our presence and investing in our people in the Territory is a key priority for us given the strategic importance of the region to Australia’s future.”
