Department of Defence

At Defence we believe a diverse workforce is essential to strengthen our capability. We know that 'Diversity' is broader than gender, age, language, ethnicity, cultural background, disability, sexual orientation and religious beliefs; it is a way of thinking and an approach to delivering the best results. Through diversity we gain the varied perspectives needed to tackle complex problems and come up with innovative solutions. We achieve our results by drawing on the different strengths, attributes and characteristics of the many individuals who make up our teams. Defence is committed to a fair, inclusive and supportive work environment where our people can grow personally and professionally; this made the decision to join WORK180 a very natural step. 

To embed this commitment, Defence is currently undertaking a five-year program of cultural change and reinforcement. At Defence, we care about your health and happiness. We offer a range of flexible working options to assist you with balancing your work commitments with your family, fitness, studies and lifestyle. Part-time job sharing, flextime, and home-base work are examples of options available.

Defence offers a generous salary package, including a 15.4 per cent superannuation contribution for all employees and salary packaging options. 

Defence is committed to investing in our people by providing a range of learning and development programs, to help them reach their full potential, such as:

  • Mentoring
  • Study assistance
  • Professional development
  • Career management

In Defence you will enjoy experiences and opportunities that, as an APS employee, you simply wouldn't get with any other organisation.

The variety of jobs we have is greater than you think - with the right qualifications you are able to undertake interesting, challenging, and unique work.
