We believe work is about skills. And that everyone should be able to participate, no matter their gender, ethnicity or cultural background. That’s why we have worked with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) to recruit their brightest and best for more than 14 years through our public-private collaboration called Defence Force Recruiting. Things have changed a lot since our relationship started, but we’ve always been committed to finding new ways of recruiting the skilled Defence talent of today and tomorrow.
When the ADF charged ManpowerGroup with improving the diversity of the workforce, we gladly accepted the challenge. Currently, one in four full time recruits are women. This isn’t about reducing the number of men, it’s about creating equal opportunities for everyone. From personnel officer to supply specialist, from combat soldier to communications leader – there’s no such thing as men or women’s work.
