About our Team
The Northern Territory is home to some of the most exciting Defence capability in Australia, including the Joint Strike Fighter, Patrol Boats, 1st Combat Brigade and the US Marine Force Rotation - Darwin, and it's only getting bigger. 

The Service Delivery Division team in the Northern Territory (NT) has a workforce of approximately 60 people and provides on-the-ground services and support to four operational Defence bases as well as approximately 1.3 million hectares of training areas. 

The team here in the NT is part of a wider national team, working closely with our colleagues in Queensland and South Australia. Together we work in partnership with the ADF to enable capability through ensuring facilities and infrastructure are fit for purpose, serviceable and allow our ADF partners to carry out their mission. 

We are seeking to engage people with a depth of customer service experience, leadership skills and a positive and inclusive approach to working as part of a team. Our teams work closely with the ADF and service delivery partners to ensure essential services are delivered, and our Defence bases are maintained to a high standard.
