  • Developing tools and templates within CAD and generating design drawings and support materials such as BOMs and network schedules under the supervision of our senior team members
  • Conducting site visits, assisting in stakeholder workshops and working as part of a larger team delivering an integrated suite of services

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Ideally, by you'll hold a university degree in a relevant field (Engineering, Computer Science, Cyber, Network Security, or similar) or an Advanced Design Diploma in Control Systems or similar. You'll possess:

  • Australian citizenship with the ability obtain and maintain Defence clearance
  • An ability to think logically and outside the box
  • Capability to work within a team and to operate flexibly
  • We are open to candidates with 0-2 years' experience
