Lockheed Martin announced the opening of a new Mission Support Center in the greater Jackson, Miss., area slated to open in September. The center will create 350 new jobs with recruiting starting in May.

This is all part of Lockheed’s Gulf Coast technology hub and increasing its awareness in the state. Currently, the company has existing operations in Biloxi, Stennis and Vicksburg, Miss. The center will provide more technology services for existing federal customers.

Executive vice president for the company’s Information Systems and Global Solutions division Linda Gooden said Mississippi is the right location for the center.

“The state of Mississippi offers the right  workforce and facility to create a world class operation that will deliver world-class technology services and best value to customers,” she said.

Lockheed has held annual IT events at the Jackson Convention Center to develop partnerships with the local community and plans on hosting job fairs in the near future. More information about the company’s job opportunities is available at www.lockheedmartinjobs.com.
