Talent Manager

Zach Gilby

Job Title: Talent Manager

Team:Defence

One thing you bring to your role?

I’m pretty high energy, love a bit of banter and love meeting new people! I have a positive attitude and I’m always down for a chat!

Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?

I have a pretty broad array of music tastes ranging from indie artists, The Beatles, Michael Jackson and even a bit of KPOP (BLACKPINK), but if I really can’t choose, I’ll always default to Britney Spears or Mariah Carey (really outing myself here!!).

What tip would you give someone looking to join the (Defence/Engineering/Cyber) industry?

When looking to get into Defence, be ready to work as part of a strong team and be willing to actively participate! Be confident in yourself!

What are the biggest mistakes candidates make in an interview?

I think the biggest mistake for candidates to make is to not do any research into the company they’re applying for. It seems to come off as if they don’t care about the position and not interested in the outcome. Also, don’t overly try to impress, be prepared and be yourself, you’ll feel more comfortable and the interview questions will seem easier to answer!
