  • Are you looking for your next career challenge?
  • Wanting to make your mark in a Leadership role?
  • Manage a portfolio of works through procurement and delivery!
BADGE is a national commercial construction company with over 35 years of experience delivering quality projects across Australia and New Zealand. Our high-performing teams deliver first-class, award-winning projects in a broad range of sectors, and we enjoy an established and respected reputation in the marketplace. We operate from offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Maroochydore and Perth.

BADGE has experienced strong growth in the Defence sector and is looking to engage actively with the Defence Estate Works program. To support this objective we are seeking a Defence Estate Works Manager to operate from our office in Bulimba, Brisbane. Experience in the construction industry across business development, procurement and delivery is desirable. Defence sector experience is also advantageous.


The three key areas of responsibility in this role are:

Business Development and Relationship Management

  • Attend networking events, build sustainable and meaningful relationships with clients and consultants, and stay up-to-date with the pipeline of Defence works.
  • Identify and build valued relationships with subcontractors.


  • Assist with Defence bids, act as Bid Manager where appropriate and support bids with technical writing.

Construction Support

  • Lead and manage a team of construction experts through Defence project delivery.
  • Manage the planning process on Defence projects, including the transfer of knowledge from the bid phase to construction.
  • Train, develop and mentor our project teams to ensure they understand Defence-specific requirements.
  • Oversee multiple Defence projects, ensuring the delivery obligations of each project are met.


This is an outstanding opportunity well suited to ex-service people or currently-serving Defence personnel looking for a career change. To be successful in this role you must be able to travel regularly to attend business networking functions and project sites around Queensland, some of which are located remotely. You must also be able to obtain a Defence Baseline Clearance to be considered for this position.


We can offer you:

  • An enjoyable, friendly and professional working environment
  • Opportunity to develop your leadership skills by participating in our Leadership Development program
  • Varied, interesting work and a competitive remuneration package
  • A strong team culture and opportunity to join an active social club
  • Ongoing career development, training and support
  • Discounted private health insurance and supplier discounts


We are committed to maintaining meaningful equity and diversity in our workforce. We are proud to offer a workplace that embraces and celebrates the value of all cultures and backgrounds. We encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates to apply for this position.
