Establishment of strategy and concepts
Risk reduction and requirement setting
Acquisition, introduction into service, management and sustainment
Withdrawal and disposal
What services does Forge offer?
We provide services across a range of disciplines, such as Capability Design, Development, Integration, Test and Evaluation, Procurement, Certification and Integrated logistics Support. We are experts in feasibility assessment, business case development, stakeholder engagement, strategic communications, Government approvals, complex procurement, cost modelling, scheduling, governance and risk management. We have a proven delivery record across Defence, Infrastructure and all tiers of Government, and private industry.
"Above the line" we partner with Federal, State and Local Governments, and act on their behalf to deliver projects and capability for Australians.
"Below the line" we partner with Industry and act on their behalf to win work and to deliver projects of significance to Australians.
We pride ourselves on our culture; and before everything else - we are looking for committed people with character and drive. First and foremost, Forge is a team, and we are looking for team players. We laugh, enjoy our work and are humble and collaborative. We always act with integrity. We embrace diversity and we respect each other.
Where could you work?
Forge has footprints in Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle, New York (we are global 😉) and shortly, Melbourne. We have accomplished and experienced leaders in each location and are looking for dedicated professionals to help us deliver strategic projects of national significance.
We are building opportunities, and careers for our team. In Defence, we are suppoting projects delivering leading edge technologies to the war-fighter. In Infrastructure, we are supporting some of the most complex and challenging national infrastructure projects in Australia - including Australia's longest ever rail tunnel.

We support Defence reservists, and offer flexible working arrangements where-ever possible; and there are no career penalties for changing role, location, focus or discipline.

How do we work?
We work flexibly to deliver the best possible outcomes for our Clients, for our Team and for our communities. We work with a high degree of autonomy and limited supervision, and get the job done without being chased. We operate in uncertainty, and are self-starters. We "connect-dots" and share information openly and follow-through to completion. We support each other, and roll-up our sleeves to help the team succeed. We also have a few rough edges - we are growing and so not everything is perfect. Our team is shaping and developing our future together. Through this approach - we contribute to Australia as a Nation.
