The Lithgow Regional Economic Development Strategy identifies the development and support of local businesses in the defence industry.
Lithgow City Council has recently taken up membership of Australian Business Defence Industry (ABDI). ABDI is a nationally-focused member organisation that provide a range of services to support entry into, and business with, the Australian defence market – at both a direct and indirect service provider level.
In order to support industry growth and diversification Lithgow City Council is calling for expressions of interest from local businesses who believe they have skills and capabilities to support the Australian Defence forces. The aim is to create a database of suitably skilled Lithgow businesses that can be alerted to opportunities in the defence space – for either business upskilling opportunities or tendering for jobs/contracts.
Please complete the following brief survey to register your interest to explore skills development and/or work and contract opportunities in the defence market.
