Defence recognises the importance of its relationship with Australian businesses and the value they add to the economy.  Australian enterprises are essential to ensuring durable supply chains and sovereign industrial capability which supports the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and contributes to national security.

 

The Defence Industry Secondment Program was designed to increase support for Australian businesses and enhance Defence Industry development.

In consultation with key stakeholders across Defence, a program has been established to:

  • Increase secondment placements of ADF members and APS employees into Australian businesses
  • Promote knowledge sharing and strengthen the positive working relationships between Defence and Industry
  • Develop resilient and competitive Australian employees to achieve our common strategic goals
