Public Sector Minister John Rau said Maxxia would provide salary sacrifice arrangements for the state’s public servants until 2023.
Rau said the extension enabled the company to establish a customer service centre in SA, generating 25 jobs and bringing its total local workforce to 40.
“[W]e’ve had a great relationship with Maxxia over more than 16 years now, including four where the company has been the sole provider of these services,” he said.
“I am pleased that by continuing this relationship we’ll see the company expand its local presence and generate new jobs for South Australians.”
Maxxia’s chief executive officer Mike Salisbury said SA would benefit from the government’s decision to extend the contract.
“The extension of our partnership for a further five years will enable us to increase our investment locally in people, operations and services,” Salisbury said.
The company will begin advertising for new staff this month and the new centre is due to open in April.
The government said Maxxia’s performance would be regularly reviewed.
Maxxia is one of Australia’s largest salary packaging providers and part of the ASX-listed McMillan Shakespeare Group.
