Building a better working world

EY has a dedicated national defence practice with a strong understanding of both industry and government. We have proven experience in advising defence industry participants in all aspects of effective collaboration with the Primes.

Our deep understanding of the local context and of defence organisations comes from previous project experience and strong connections with key defence industry Primes. In particular, we have a proven project delivery track record and long-term relationships with the Australian Government’s Department of Defence.

We are able to leverage our experience with Australian defence organisations and our established relationships with key stakeholders across the defence sector to offer valuable insights and advice to international companies relocating to the Defence Landing Pad.
