Meet our new Employment Officer!

At DFA, we are committed to advocating for more initiatives to assist our Defence partners gain and maintain meaningful employment.

Partner employment continues to be a critical issue for both partners and DFA.

Recently in partnership with the Defence Community Organisation (DCO) and the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA) we held a successful webinar for partners which discussed Career Support.

We want to educate Australian businesses on what they can do to recruit, hire and retain Defence partners as valuable employees.
