Talent Manager

Steve Hutcheson

Job Title: Talent Manager

Industry/Sector: Defence Contract for VIC and WA


One thing you bring to your role: An open mind and a willingness to embrace the unexpected.


What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue and why?

The piano! I am trying to teach myself now with the help of some online courses and friends but if time and money weren’t an issue I’m sure I could get some left and right hand coordination!


What is the best thing about working in the Defence Industry? Why?

Being well placed to see and hear about a lot of the exciting projects and acquisitions happening in Defence today! As an ex-serviceman, with almost 13 years in the Army, Defence was such a big part of my early life. Now it is great to be back working with Industry and connecting with some of the amazing individuals that help to turn these exciting projects into reality. I also feel privileged to be able to learn a little more about the engineering side of things and how these massive projects come together. I think it reminds me of building my Lego Technic models and marveling at how it all works!

What are the three main things you look at in a resume? 

A brief personal summary that tells me about who you are, a job history that highlights your achievements and dates! A job history without dates, or presenting vague and overlapping dates, just looks like you are trying to hide something. Honesty is always the best policy.
