Australian Defence Magazine has named Downer and Spotless in seventh position in their annual Top 40 Contractors list, up from eighth place in 2018.
Combined teams delivered services worth $628 million dollars across a range of roles including capability advisor, project management, sustainment, estate maintenance, and construction. Executive General Manager, Defence & Critical Infrastructure, Jacob Bonisch said “A growing focus is to improve the customer experience of the soldier, sailor, airman and airwoman that use the estate. Making our services easier to access and introducing improved elements of customer experience from other market sectors is an important area of focus for our people as we strive to be a good partner for Defence.”
Spotless and Downer were also recognised in the Top 10 Contractors for female employment, with 34 per cent participation of women in the businesses. This figure is well above the 25 per cent average of other participants, with only one other Top 10 contractor listed in this category.
