Full Job Description
Nova Systems is the largest Australian owned and controlled Defence engineering services company. Since our foundation in Adelaide 20 years ago, Nova Systems and its people have been providing sovereign capability to the Australian Defence Force - playing a critical role in the defence and security of our nation.

As an organisation which has grown from two employees 20 years ago, to over 850 full time employees and active sub-contractors across Australia and around the globe, we are accustomed to navigating and finding solutions to solve the problems that matter with pace and agility.

With revenue of over AUD 200 million, Nova Systems is a significant contributor to the Australian economy and national supply chain - providing jobs for Australians and contributing to the nation’s GDP.

About our opportunity:
Are you interested in working in Risk Management in Defence?
If you have not yet had the opportunity to gain risk experience, we will provide the training and development to grow your career across our Defence clients in Risk Management Consulting services.

These opportunities are ideally suited to applicants with 2-5yrs of experience working in Defence, Government or other project positions. If you are looking for a secure working environment with a strong company culture and competitive employee benefits including professional development, then we could be the right company for you.

You could be working in any of our various Integrated Work Packages under the Major Service Provider contract, supporting CASG. You will be working as part of the onsite team with the client to deliver effective Risk Management acquisition and sustainment type projects.

Team Nova is a Major Service Provider (MSP) to the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) within the Australian Department of Defence.

We have commenced multiple long term Integrated Work Packages (IWP) in Joint, Land and Aerospace Systems Divisions of CASG.

A Consultant for Nova provides advice and technical solutions to clients, generally in a project setting - solving their complex challenges. As our client’s needs are ever evolving, you can expect variety and diversity in the support you provide.

You could expect that no day, client or project is the same. A consultant’s duties are often changing based on the project (or multiple projects) requirements, the needs of the client, or the business tasks available.

This means that whilst you may be engaged for a primary skill set initially, consultants need to be flexible enough to meet changing client requirements. In effect the work we perform varies and provides a level of diversity to our people.

You will typically provide support in the following areas;
Billable work supporting clients;
Non-Billable work supporting other areas of the Nova Group;
Providing support at times outside your core skill area;
Stakeholder engagement and management;
