As the international design and build partner for Australia’s Future Submarine Program (AFSP), Naval Group is playing a critical role in the design and construction of 12 regionally superior submarines that will keep Australia’s shores secure for decades to come.

The Future Submarine Program involves the definition, design, manufacture and delivery of the Submarine, its systems, equipment and common technologies, as well as a Submarine Construction Yard (SCY) with specialist test and integration facilities.  It is essential for these complex products that technical data and baselines are carefully identified, configured and managed.

As we continue on this historic program Naval Group Australia (NGA) are looking to secure a Configuration Manager responsible for establishing and managing the configuration of technical data within the scope of responsibility for Naval Group Australia.

Role Responsibility:

  • Participate in the tripartite CM Working Group (CMWG), including attendance at CMWG meetings and involvement in the development of tripartite program CM policies, processes and templates;
  • Contribute to the development of common policies, process, templates and tool specifications necessary to collaborate with other Naval Group stakeholders;
  • Engage technical leads to identify and define the configuration items and the status of configuration baselines, their contents and the associated milestones;
  • Engage technical leads and key stakeholders to ensure that traceability requirement items are identified;
  • Engage technical leads to anticipate, identify, assess, analyse and control changes understanding the potential scope within the context of the project;
  • Steer and perform functional and physical configuration audits on baselines under the responsibility of NGA.
  • Establish and manage the configuration management team in NGA;
  • Ensure the CM process is applied consistently within Naval Group Australia.

     

Skills and Experience

  • Minimum of 10 years’ experience in an industrial and defence environment within submarine and shipbuilding.
  • Extensive experience and qualifications in configuration or technical data management processes and tools.
  • Ability to lead a team and work in a multicultural environment.
  • Ability to balance conflicting priorities to deliver against customer and business requirements, with appropriate stakeholder management.
  • Ability to work and be a part of a project team.
  • Demonstrated high levels of commitment, imagination, initiative, personal drive and openness with the capacity to work autonomously.
  • High level of innovation in compliance and cost objectives.

The successful applicant must be an Australian Citizen and eligible to attain an Australian Defence Security Clearance.
