Location: Greater Melbourne, Victoria, AU

Company: QinetiQ

QinetiQ employs more than 8000 people in 50 locations around the world, offering our customers premier expertise in advice, services and creative technology-based products.


QinetiQ Australia, part of the global QinetiQ group, provides technological and scientific expertise and advisory services to help customers protect and advance their vital interests. As an innovative science and technology company, we help solve some of our customers' most challenging problems. Our determination to deliver and improve today and anticipate and shape tomorrow, makes QinetiQ a very exciting, rewarding and respected place to work and learn.


We’re particularly excited to now welcome applications for opportunities to work with our customer, the Land Domain of the Defence Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) on the LAND 400 program. Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the LAND 400 Program is delivering the next generation of Armoured Vehicles to the Australian Army. These vehicles will replace the current fleets of Australian Light Armoured Vehicles (ASLAV) and M113 Armoured Personnel Carriers that have been in service for decades.


The Land Domain of CASG is the single point of accountability for both acquisition and through-life-materiel support for designated land systems for the Australian Defence Force. Comprising Land Systems Division and Armoured Vehicle Division, the Land Domain is responsible for delivery of a diverse range of capabilities to support 'raise, train and sustain' requirements and operational deployments. The LAND 400 program represents another opportunity to work in support of this dynamic organisation.
