Source: uWorkin


Nova Systems is the largest Australian owned and controlled Defence engineering services company. Since our foundation in Adelaide 20 years ago, Nova Systems and its people have been providing sovereign capability to the Australian Defence Force - playing a critical role in the defence and security of our nation.

As an organisation which has grown from two employees 20 years ago, to over 850 full time employees and active sub-contractors across Australia and around the globe, we are accustomed to navigating and finding solutions to solve the problems that matter with pace and agility.

With revenue of over AUD 200 million, Nova Systems is a significant contributor to the Australian economy and national supply chain - providing jobs for Australians and contributing to the nation's GDP.

About the opportunity:

We have immediate opportunities for Defence Project Managers to provide support across a number of Defence projects in Newcastle. Our Project Managers work across Defence Aerospace programs supporting Government in delivering strategic capability for Australia.

A Consultant for Nova provides advice and technical solutions to clients, generally in a project setting - solving their complex challenges. As our client's needs are ever evolving, you can expect variety and diversity in the support you provide.

You could expect that no day, client or project is the same. A consultant's duties are often changing based on the project (or multiple projects) requirements, the needs of the client, or the business tasks available.

This means that whilst you may be engaged for a primary skill set initially, consultants need to be flexible enough to meet changing client requirements. In effect the work we perform varies and provides a level of diversity to our people.

You will typically provide support in the following areas;

  • Billable work supporting clients;
  • Non-Billable work supporting other areas of the Nova Group;
  • Providing support at times outside your core skill area;
  • Stakeholder engagement and management;
  • Business Development and Bid Writing.

What will you be involved in:

  • Overseeing all aspects of planning and implementation of project deliverables to support project objectives;
  • Development of Operational Concept Documents, Joint Capability Needs Statements, Project Execution Strategies, and other allied documents to support the Government project approval process;
  • Liaising with Project Managers and Engineers on Pre-Gate 2 projects;
  • Development of Government policy in support of acquisition, sustainment, and operation of key Defence capabilities.

What we would like from you:

  • Australian Citizen with potential to gain an AGSVA clearance essential;
  • Project Management qualifications or certification, or equivalent in years of experience;
  • Project Management experience across complex Defence projects;
  • An understanding of the Defence Capability Life Cycle;
  • Experience within the CASG or ADF environments (desirable);
  • A graduate of the Defence Capability Technology Management Program (desirable);
  • PMP or Prince2 certification (desirable);
  • Excellent written and verbal communication and client management skills;
  • Be a team player with a can-do attitude.

What you get beyond the pay cheque:
