The esteemed annual list, published by the Australian Defence Magazine, is based on a survey the publication conducts with all engaged contractors. The survey seeks to identify the most preferred partnering contractors against a range of criteria over the past 12 months, including:

  • Australian workforce: full time equivalent, defence and non-defence staff
  • Company ownership including: international, Australian, public and private
  • Turnover in Defence related business for Australia and New Zealand
  • Female workforce participation
  • Indigenous engagement based on the Australian Government’s Reconciliation Action Plan

Also included in the publication is a specific list that ranks female workforce participation among contractors.

Aurecon was ranked one of the top engineering consultants in the list for female workplace participation, with women making up 32 per cent of the workforce – up 2 per cent from 2018.

Defence and National Security Managing Director, David Barnes, said Aurecon is a proud industry partner to the Australian Government Department of Defence.

“It is a real honour to be named in the ADM Top 40 Defence Contractors list,” David said.

“Moving up in our position is a testament to Aurecon’s continued efforts in partnering with our Defence clients to bring their ideas to life – particularly in the areas of design, project management, asset management and the integration of digital technology in project delivery.”

“It’s also fantastic to see that our rankings in regard to female participation in the workforce improve as we continue to build a more diverse and inclusive workforce,” David said.
