A Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) workforce is critical for Defence and Australia’s ability to achieve the Government’s current and future challenges. 

Defence needs to continue to build a world-leading STEM-capable workforce of Australian Defence Force and Australian Public Service personnel.

Defence is focused on accessing a broad talent pool which represents the diversity of the Australian community, specifically highlighting the career pathways for women and indigenous Australians into STEM careers.

Defence invests in training programs and support services that ensure a rewarding career on both a personal and professional level. The skills and experience gained working in STEM at Defence are highly sought after.
