BMT has been awarded ‘job creator of the month’ from BenchOn for supporting local industry. The award is part of an on-going initiative to improve utilisation within the Australian Defence industry, where under-utilisation increases costs, reduces job stability and decreases business growth. 

BenchOn’s job creator of the month aims to encourage the creation of 1000 new full-time positions this financial year by matching highly skilled, under-utilised employees from one company to the short-term requirements in other companies.  The overall objective is to tackle under-utilisation where businesses traditionally have problems with business development, focusing on short-term contracts to stay afloat rather than strategic, long-term contracts.

Peter Behrendt, Managing Director at BMT comments: “We are delighted to accept this award and assist with BenchOn’s objectives of supporting local industry and small businesses. This award reflects our strong, ongoing commitment in supporting Australian Engineers for the Australian Naval Enterprise.”

Tim Walmsley, CEO of BenchOn comments: “BMT have been leading the way in this campaign and we are proud to have a company of their calibre supporting our efforts to create a more robust industry that can grow jobs for the future.  We encourage the rest of industry to follow BMT's lead by joining us in the pledge.”
