In 2012, Glen Ferrarotto founded Australia’s first dedicated recruitment agency for veterans, Ironside Recruitment. Since that time, he has paved the way for a large number of Australian veterans to access and develop long term, meaningful careers outside of the ADF.
Glen is a veteran himself, having served for over 10 years in the Australian Army as a mechanic before discharging in 2008. He brings this personal understanding of the military experience to his work as a strong advocate for veterans’ employment. Over the past six years, Glen has engaged with businesses from industries across Australia, establishing comprehensive networks and working tirelessly to raise awareness of the skills and qualities that veterans bring, while also directly helping veterans to understand their own value and worth to society post transition.
