Career Opportunities in Defence Industry

In response to the cancellation of the Attack Program the DTC has created this job hub to help members advertise their current job vacancies at no cost. This is part of the DTC's advocacy campaign promoting the defence SME community as a rewarding career path.

"SMEs are adaptable and this is a time where some of you may choose to tailor positions in your business to take advantage of the skills now available on the market," Audra McCarthy, CEO of DTC said.
