Despite COVID-19, we have a strong pipeline of job opportunities and we are still hiring. We’re continuing to provide the Australian Defence Force with what they need to help protect the nation. We’re finding new ways of working in response to COVID-19 and our workforce is still delivering the best capability for Australia. 


About the Opportunity

Join others like you, who simply love new technology.

This opportunity will see you:

  • Develop and manage the Technical Support Network (TSN) to complement and supplement technical skills, knowledge and capacity available for the DDG naval ships
  • Develop, structure and maintain commercial relationships, ensuring that timely access to Technical Support Agencies (TSA’s) is available to support the DDG enterprise activities
  • Manage the Objective Quality Evidence (OQE) of the TSN members and their expertise, competency, capacity and capability to provide products or services
  • Collaborate with the Procurement function to establish formal arrangements with the TSA’s
  • Develop strong working relationships with a variety of stakeholders to continually improve the TSN function
