CIPS & NSC Webinar - An opportunity for procurement and supply professionals

In this webinar the Naval Shipbuilding College (NSC) and CIPS unravel the world of opportunity that exists in naval shipbuilding careers in procurement, supply, purchasing and subcontracts roles. The Australian Government announced a planned investment of $183 billion, a plan that is more than building ships, submarines and shipyards. It will establish a long-term sustainable Australian naval shipbuilding and sustainment capability that will generate industry growth and develop secure Australian jobs for the future. Hear first-hand from procurement and supply professionals who are now working in the industry and receive some tips and tricks from the NSC about planning your career pathway.

    • AEST: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
