Raytheon Australia is a leading provider of whole-of-life capabilities for the Australian Defence Force. With an in-country history spanning two decades, it has become a trusted capability partner for Australia’s defence force.
Raytheon Australia takes a long-term approach to investing in their veteran employees, recognising the value of the unique experience and skills veterans bring to business. For more than two decades, Raytheon Australia has demonstrated their commitment and support for veterans’ employment, with steadfast and consistent business practices that start before veterans apply for a position and extend throughout their career.
Veterans make up more than one-third of Raytheon Australia’s 1500-strong workforce and many have stayed for more than 10 years.
Raytheon Australia has systematically grown the range of support provided to enhance the experience of veterans and smooth their transition to civilian life. Its primary objective is to provide direct support to current veteran employees while also creating a work environment that attracts new employees.
Raytheon Australia has developed informed and targeted recruitment processes and provides veteran employees with flexible work arrangements to support transition to civilian employment. It has a dedicated recruitment team to assist applicants to match their military skills with civilian roles and it provides mentoring and coaching to pair new veteran employees with a co-worker buddy to support their induction and ongoing career development.
