I love that I’m able to work with others to solve problems that have an impact and make a difference every day while still being able to learn new things.
Georgia, Systems Engineer, BAE Systems Australia
There’s such a variety of opportunities in the defence industry and I’m really excited about the prospect of working on innovative and cutting-edge projects. I have some of the greatest minds around me and these people support me in my growth and development as an engineer.
Jessica, Hardware Engineer, Lockheed Martin Australia
I’m excited for the opportunity to work on massive projects that have a real impact on the future of our Defence Force and the nation’s protection and security.
Jeff, Systems Engineer, Nova Systems
There are a number of projects within South Australia which you can spend your entire career working on and still enjoy what you do.
Dhiren, Commercial Manager, PMB Defence
This sector is growing fast, which means there are always new and exciting projects on the horizon.
Andrew, General Manager, Precise Manufacturing
The best thing about leading a company in South Australia’s defence industry is shining a light on the local skills, talent, and innovation that exists right here, in our own backyard.
Simon, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Silentium Defence
There’s a misconception that the defence industry is very serious, but the experience I’ve had is that we are a very creative and collaborative group of individuals working towards a common goal.
Jamila, Project Manager, ASC Shipbuilding
If there is something that you want to do, and you want to give back to defence, there is definitely a job out there for you.
Zac, Support Technician, Silentium Defence
What I love most about my job is being able to solve the problems that really matter, knowing that my work contributes to Australia’s national security and economic growth.
Trent, Senior Systems Engineer, Nova Systems
A lot of people study engineering and do very little engineering in their day to day role. I wanted to be doing calculations and getting my hands dirty in a work shop. I also wanted to be working at the forefront of technology development. This made defence the obvious choice.
Seth, Mechanical Engineer, PMB Defence
I love the culture of our company and the tech we get to work with. The defence industry as a whole has so much to offer in terms of ground breaking technology. We get to develop really cool products and go out in the field testing them. It’s a really interesting industry with so many different aspects that can be worked on.
People should definitely consider a career in the defence industry, it takes all types to do the work that we do and there’s lots of opportunities for growth. Adelaide is not only a really nice place to live it’s a really fantastic place to work especially if you are in the defence industry.
Kyal, Digital Specialist, BAE Systems ASC Shipbuilding
You don’t need to be in the armed forces or necessarily have experience in the defence industry in order to be successful and have a rewarding career. The industry is growing, well-funded and rampant with opportunity…I can’t see myself moving on anytime soon.
