Agile operators. Forward thinkers. Solution finders. In IM&IT, our mission is to enable and drive DE&S towards our vision to become a world-class digital organisation. We’re a centre of excellence, delivering trusted services to help our organisation excel.
We’re approachable and efficient, providing affordable, innovative solutions. It’s an exciting and fun place to be, where you can develop a rewarding and fulfilling IT career.
Information management and IT jobs
We offer a wide variety of IT roles at all levels, including:
- Business analysis
- Strategy, architecture and solutions design
- Applications development
- IT operations
- Service management
- Information assurance
- Knowledge and information management
- MI and analytics
You’ll ensure DE&S have the tools and technology we need to succeed and protect our information.
Without our support, our project teams wouldn’t have the tools and tech they require to deliver the equipment the front line commands need.
Learn, grow, progress
We’re here to support you to be the best you can be – whether that’s through support and funding for professional qualifications, on-the-job learning, coaching and mentoring, or the support of a Development Officer who’s there to help you navigate your career. Here you’ll find a great opportunity to kickstart your career – or take it to the next level!
