Navantia Australia and JLB-Yaran recently signed an MOU at Pacific 2019 with the intent of creating and building long-term careers for Indigenous talent in the defence industry.
On this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Navantia Australia’s supply chain Australianisation lead Craig Williams, managing director at JLB-Yaran Brendan Dumbrell, and business development manager at JLB-Yaran Hayden Surrao.
They discuss the benefits of this newly formed relationship in supporting the industry’s workforce, explain why working with traditional land owners is vital to establishing sovereign capability, and outline how these organisations are highlighting the defence industry as an attractive career opportunity for Indigenous Australians.
