We operate in a matrixed environment which gives you a unique experience to affect how the team works, how the team grows, how they are developed and how we achieve the business goals and strategy.

  • Participate in key decision making forums to further BDA strategy
  • Assist with the conduct of independent strategic reviews and assessments
  • Be an advocate for diversity and inclusion and be actively involved in leading change

  • We are looking for someone with proven senior leadership experience
  • As you will be leading a team of engineers and technical professionals, previous experience in a similar environment will certainly assist you in being successful in this role
  • A proven excellent communicator who can engage and motivate diverse and geographically dispersed teams
  • Australian Citizenship is required as we will need to progress an Australian Security Clearance for you.
