If you are looking for a challenging career that makes a difference, perhaps a role in the Department of Defence working on Australia’s most complex Defence naval capabilities is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for? Whether you are looking to start your journey in engineering or you are a seasoned engineer / technician, we are looking for capable, flexible and bold problem solvers to jump into a range of challenging and rewarding roles.

The Plan outlines the Australian Government’s vision for the Australian naval shipbuilding enterprise and the significant investment required in coming decades.
