Work with us

The De Stefano & Co team are always on the lookout for new talent to join our team.


Allow us to tell you a little bit about ourselves so you can decide if we might be a good fit for the next step in your career...

The downlow on De Stefano & Co:

  • We've been included in the top 25 fastest growing South Australian companies through the BDO Australia Fast Movers SA awards for the last two years running (12th place in 2022 and 15th place in 2023).

  • We’re located in the heart of Port Adelaide (right near the iconic red lighthouse), just a short stroll from cafes, pubs, Pirate Life (for lovers of a good local pint), and a huge variety of restaurants.

  • We’re recognised as leaders in our field by industry associations, academia and government alike.

  • We surpass our competition in every way. We go deeper, further and BIGGER at all times, and we never compromise.

  • We do the right thing by our clients and we genuinely care about who they are and what they’re trying to achieve.

  • We’re an organisation that invests in its people, technology, systems and community.

  • We work hard to uncover, nurture and grow Australia's defence industry capability.

  • We are a team. We work hard, but we also love a laugh and a healthy amount of office antics…


How working with us will be different:

  • Want a flexible work environment? Part-time, full-time, or casual? Tick!

  • Want professional development? You got it!

  • Want opportunities for travel? It’s there if you want it.

  • Have an idea? We’re all ears.

  • No more office politics. Say goodbye to all that rubbish and be part of a team where openness and transparency are at its core.

  • Crave variety? With our services covering defence industry security, strategy, development and grants, no two days will be the same.

  • Genuine leadership. Our leaders have a strong track record and drive a positive culture of performance. And their doors are always open…

  • No dickheads, no bullshit. It’s as simple as that.

What we want from you:

  • You'll be a team player, but also thrive on autonomy.

  • You'll set and meet deadlines, and always remain accountable.

  • You'll go the extra mile, and bend over backwards to support our clients, and your team.

  • You'll relish the opportunity to learn and develop within a fast-paced, energetic business.

  • You'll be professional and tenacious when it comes to delivering results.

  • You'll be passionate, positive and help our business stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.


At De Stefano & Co, you won’t simply be a small cog in a big machine, and you won’t be treated like a number. You’ll be a part of an organisation where your efforts are not only recognised and appreciated, but you’ll be directly influencing the performance of the business and its future direction.
