Graduate development programs

Graduates are recruited to the DMO in engineering and non-engineering disciplines. In 2007, 81 graduates began work in the DMO as part of the Materiel Graduate Scheme; this was almost double the 2006 intake and was a response to organisational demand.

They are recruited in the streams of Engineering, Finance and Accounting, Logistics, Information Technology, Legal and Contracting and Procurement and complete three six-month rotations in the organisation.
