Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne has congratulated key defence industry player Leidos Australia on a record number of applicants following a recruitment drive.

Leidos Australia has increased its workforce by approximately 200 employees over the last year, which the minister said is further evidence of strong growth in Australia’s defence industry sector.

Minister Pyne said “Thanks to the Turnbull government’s historic $200 billion investment in defence capability and the corresponding growth in Australia’s defence industry sector, plus raised public awareness through the government’s 'Workforce Behind the Defence Force' information campaign, companies like Leidos Australia are seeing enormous interest from candidates.”

Graduates will fill both technical and operational roles, including systems, software and logistics engineers, as well as cyber, intelligence and financial analysts, and project management. 

“The most recent number of applications received by Leidos Australia was 1,384, representing an 85 per cent increase in applications from last year’s recruitment program. The company is expecting to hire 45 graduates in 2019, which is a 50 per cent increase on this year’s intake," said Minister Pyne.
