  • We deliver content to support ADF personnel leaving defence to transition to the workforce.

What don't we do well?

  • Business development (Sydney)
  • Account management (Sydney - potentially Melbourne)
  • Talent managers x 4 (across all offices)

We understand for a lot of people 'why you do what you do is important', if that describes you and you also:

  • have a curiosity for the technical world
  • have a passion for Defence and / or the engineering world
  • can listen and speak to technical people
  • have great written and spoken skills - lots of it is over the phone but lots is F2F when we can
  • Think inside and outside the box
  • want to work for a company that puts our people at the centre
