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.

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.
