The website was launched through a partnership between the federal government’s Naval Shipbuilding College and key partners, and it is hoped that it will facilitate Australia’s current ongoing shipbuilding programs as well as Australia’s sovereign shipbuilding industry into the future.

Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price commented that the portal, dubbed the JobsPortal, will support a range of prospective shipbuilding employees from the trades through to those with PhD qualifications.

“By 2030 about 15,000 workers across the country will be employed in Australia’s National Naval Shipbuilding Enterprise, carrying out the largest regeneration of our naval fleet since the Second World War,” Minister Price said.

“Currently, the Naval Shipbuilding College’s weekly job alert contains, on average, more than 150 job opportunities.

“That number is only going to grow. The JobsPortal is a one-stop shop for job seekers and shipbuilding industry recruiters.

“If you are interested in learning more about career opportunities in shipbuilding and advice about training pathways, I recommend you connect with the Naval Shipbuilding College and join the national Workforce Register.”

According to a statement released by Minister Price, the Naval Shipbuilding College is expected to enhance Australia’s shipbuilding industry by offering education, training and partnership opportunities.
