South Australia is the nation's Defence State with multiple projects underway that are generating job opportunities across a range of professional, trade and complementary occupations. These opportunities have arisen through major construction projects, as well as associated supply chains, the broader defence sector, and in the fast-growing cyber security and space industries. South Australia will be home to a $90 billion program of naval shipbuilding projects, including Australia's Future Submarines, Future Frigates and Offshore Patrol Vessels.

Opportunities are not only created through contractual supply chains but in complementary services and infrastructure.

The Defence Industry has specific and unique requirements and the size and complexity of the arrangements can seem daunting. We are here to help.
