Government launches new shipbuilding jobs portal


The Federal Government’s Naval Shipbuilding College has teamed up with Australia’s defence industry to create an online jobs portal to make it easier for Australian jobseekers to move into exciting careers in the shipbuilding sector, with opportunities ranging from trades to PhDs.

Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said the new JobsPortal is showcasing the breadth of opportunities generated by the Government’s booming naval shipbuilding program.

“By 2030 about 15,000 workers across the country will be employed in Australia’s National Naval Shipbuilding Enterprise, carrying out the largest regeneration of our naval fleet since the Second World War,” Minister Price said.

“Currently, the Naval Shipbuilding College’s weekly job alert contains, on average, more than 150 job opportunities.

“That number is only going to grow.”

The JobsPortal allows job seekers to search for vacancies in the shipbuilding sector, update their job profile, select target organisations and apply quickly and securely.

In addition, it allows industry recruiters to connect with qualified workers who are registered on the College’s National Workforce Register.

“The JobsPortal is a one-stop-shop for job seekers and shipbuilding industry recruiters,” Minister Price continued.

“If you are interested in learning more about career opportunities in shipbuilding and advice about training pathways, I recommend you connect with the Naval Shipbuilding College and join the national Workforce Register.”
