My name is Nejula Blake and I have the pleasure and privilege of developing the DFA Partner Employment program.

Originally from New Zealand I moved to Australia 12 years ago when my partner joined the Australian Army. Since then I have worked exceptionally hard to build a successful career in Human Resources specialising in recruitment and talent development.  I understand how challenging it can be to build your own career and maintain your own identity as you follow your partner around the country.

I truly believe that what makes us amazing Defence partners also provides us valuable skills which are highly in demand in today’s workforce, we are adaptable, resilient and have a can do attitude.  

If you can move halfway across the country with two weeks’ notice you can do anything.
