Australian UAV Careers


AUAV VIC: seeking expressions of interest for a General Manager/Operations Manager role in the Melbourne (Elsternwick) office. Project management in a technical field is a must, and experience with drone operations is obviously a plus. You will be responsible for scheduling staff, equipment and ensuring the delivery of complex projects throughout the country, and also with the opportunity to be involved with some of the flying work if that is of interest. More information and Job Description here.

AUAV NSW #1: a generalist role to suit a highly-motivated individual with some experience in the drone industry, wishing to expand their skills. Mix of field work flying both multi-rotors and fixed-wing UAVs, some ground survey, data processing, project proposals, project management and client liaison, etc. More information and Job Description here.

AUAV NSW #2: a skilled DJI multi-rotor operator with some experience in the roofing industry. The work involves quite challenging flying in close proximity to assets, and a flight test in manual (i.e. ATTI, with no GPS) flying in all orientations will be part of your interview. You will preferably have experience reporting on roof issues and condition. Initially a casual or part-time role of up to 1 week of work per month, but lots of room to expand into other work and responsibilities for the right candidate.

AUAV NSW/VIC: to suit a marketing student with an interest in drones based in Sydney or Melbourne, AUAV has an opening for an intern to assist with our digital, social, print and conference marketing efforts. You will join our staff on various jobs to get training and insights into the industry and together we can explore whether there is an opportunity for an ongoing paid role going forward

Aside from any positions listed above, we are always on the lookout for talented and enthusiastic people to help grow the business, so if that sounds like you please get in touch. We are particularly interested in professionals from our client industries who are seeking a change of career and can see the benefits of this amazing technology.

For our longer term growth we are seeking expressions of interest to launch offices into new regions of the country. Eligible candidates for this role would be self-sufficient with some sales and marketing knowledge, have a good network of contacts in our client industries and of course also some experience with drone operations.

If you are not quite at the level of applying for a job but are interested in taking your first steps toward becoming a commercial drone operator, you can find details on gaining a Controller Certificate on the CASA website. We work closely with and can recommend the team at Ground Effect Aviation who provide professional training services.

We receive a large number of applications from multi-rotor operators, but unfortunately unless you are making a career change from one of our client industries, it is unlikely we would have work for you in this context unless you are bringing work from your current job or network. The sort of technical experience we are looking for is usually in fixed-wing UAV operation, building your own UAV systems, or niche software/hardware technical skills which would be of use to our clients (e.g. image analysis, specialist sensors, GIS, etc).
