Our Team

The Australian Government is laying the foundations for a nationwide naval shipbuilding enterprise to support the implementation of the Naval Shipbuilding Plan. The Plan outlines the Australian Government’s vision for the Australian naval shipbuilding enterprise and the significant investment required in coming decades. Submarines are a unique Defence capability and play an essential role in supporting Australia's maritime security, and your work within the program, by engaging with Navy and Industry suppliers will ensure that Navy has an enduring and potent Submarine capability.

In our Future Submarine Program (FSP) team, you will be part of a large and complex program tied into the National Naval Shipbuilding Plan. Our Program intends to deliver a fleet of 12 regionally superior conventionally powered submarines to be known as the Attack Class. The Attack Class fleet will be built in Australia by an Australian workforce, at a purpose built Submarine Construction Yard, which will be owned by the Commonwealth through Australian Naval Infrastructure. Our Program, currently in the design stage and working with Naval Group and Lockheed Martin Australia, will provide Australia with an enduring sovereign submarine capability, with the ability to build, operate, and sustain submarines in Australia into the future. 

In addition to being involved in building Australia’s future naval fleet, at FSP, you will enjoy Australian Public Service conditions which include an attractive salary package and flexible, family-friendly working arrangements. Our staff have access to flexible working hours with opportunities for part-time and home-based work.
