DIO is part of the Ministry of Defence (MOD). We play a vital role in supporting defence, providing the armed forces and their families with a fit-for-purpose estate that includes accommodation.
As part of MOD, we are responsible for all acquisition, disposal, allocation of assets, construction and maintenance of estate infrastructure in the UK and abroad. Our people share the common goal of supporting our armed forces through management of the military estate.
We employ approximately 4,900 staff from a very diverse range of professions including head office functions and specialisms such as surveyors, town planners, airfield pavement experts, foresters and construction engineers. We work across the world; in Germany, Cyprus and the Falkland Islands, Norway, Poland, Kenya, Belize, Nepal and Oman.
