In this episode of the Defence Connect Spotlight podcast, Nova Systems’ chief people officer Shelley Willsmore and Miranda Van Hooff, executive director at Military and Emergency Services Health Australia (MESHA), join host Phil Tarrant to unpack how Defence industry can attract and retain the industry’s best and brightest and how the two organisations support veterans as they transition into civilian life.
- The podcast begins unpacking how employee value propositions are leveraged to attract leading talent amid ongoing workforce constraints and how the industry can better collaborate to support Defence.
- They then discuss upskilling existing employees, including how Nova Systems is training its engineers to provide test and evaluation services for new and emerging technologies.
- The podcast wraps up by unpacking how Nova Systems and MESHA have teamed up to support veteran employment and how the industry can benefit from the unique skill sets of Australia’s veteran community.
