In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, strong advocate for the club Simon Perdriau joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss both his current defence career in the Armament Technologies Cell, and what attracted him to joining the Royal Automobile Club of Australia.
Perdriau will discuss the civilian sector of defence industry, including the cross collaboration between uniformed and non-uniformed defence personnel, his advice for those wanting to enter into the defence sector, and what needs to be done to create a wider understanding of the scope of careers available within defence beyond uniform.
