Saab Australia starts a recruitment drive

Defence and security company Saab Australia is undertaking a major recruitment drive to attract software, hardware, systems and cyber security engineers. 

This is a direct result of the Australian Government’s announcement mandating the company’s Combat Management System across the Royal Australian Naval fleet.

“We are looking to significantly increase our workforce from 350 to around 600, following the Government’s decision to support our key role in Australia’s growing defence industry.“ said Andy Keough, Managing Director of Saab Australia. “Our recruitment drive is nationwide, providing opportunities across a broad spectrum of defence and civil projects and extensive research and development. Our plans are long term, offering careers, not just jobs.”

The recruitment drive follows Saab’s recent announcement to expand its facilities in collaboration with UniSA, creating more than 200 new jobs in Adelaide alone.
