Navy requires professional civilian engineers from a broad range of disciplines to enable Navy to acquire, maintain, sustain and upgrade ships and submarines of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). You will assist in the delivery of technical requirements, specifications, design and tender evaluations and have the opportunity to participate in tests and trials. This work includes the analysis of failures and recommending solutions. The ships and submarines of the RAN are unique and challenging platforms that combine the systems for delivering maritime capability integrated with the crews’ work place, recreation and accommodation in a single environment.
The CEDP runs for 3 years and includes six work rotations of six months each at various locations. These include:
Navy is a workplace that values its people and supports their contribution and innovative ideas. The Naval CEDP will develop the core skills required to be successful in the role and provides excellent opportunities for professional development through mentoring and education. Navy is a diverse and inclusive organisation, with a focus on the wellbeing of its staff through encouraging a work life balance.
The Naval CEDP provides engineering graduates the opportunity to grow and develop a professional career providing optimum exposure to a variety of on and off the job training. Our engineers are given opportunities to maintain and broaden their engineering skills, to attend specialist training in their given disciplines and to achieve and maintain appropriate levels of professional status (Chartered). Graduates are also provided with general training courses that have been designed to develop your core competency skills and providing you with the tools to become one of our future leaders.
The Naval CEDP is recognised by Engineers Australia, and is structured to help engineers achieve appropriate levels of professional competency, for recognition toward Chartered Status. Chartered Status is a professional credential recognised by government, business and the general public worldwide. As a Naval CEDP graduate we will continue to fund your membership with Engineers Australia or other appropriate professional body whilst you continue to meet the requirements of Navy and are working towards or maintaining Chartered Status.
