The Naval Shipbuilding College (NSC) continues to strengthen its support for Australian business workforce requirements by expanding its services to Australian Small to Medium Enterprise’s (SME). Major international contractors will transfer expertise and knowledge to Australian shipyards over the coming years to build and sustain our Australian Naval Fleet. Workforce support for the Australian SME community is a vital component to ensure success of the Australian Governments ambitions to establish a sovereign shipbuilding capability.

The NSC’s free Workforce Register and JobsPortal allows job seekers to search for vacancies in the shipbuilding sector, update their job profile, select target organisations and apply quickly and securely. The expansion of the JobsPortal to allow SMEs direct access provides even more opportunities for registered candidates to access employment opportunities. It also allows recruiters to connect with qualified workers who are registered on the NSC National Workforce Register. 

Brent Clark, Chief Executive Australian Industry Defence Network (AIDN) said “AIDN is pleased to be partnering with the NSC on the launch of the JobsPortal, we believe this partnership enhances the offerings from the NSC to benefit Australian Industry. We have worked closely with the NSC to achieve this outcome and the drive and professionalism of the organisation has been outstanding. I know that our members will benefit greatly from this initiative.”

Since its launch in April 2021, the NSC’s JobsPortal has supported around 150 people secure employment in the Naval Shipbuilding industry nationally.
