How Georgia got there

Georgia loves working on some of the biggest defence projects in Australian history, including the F35 Fighter Jet program, one of numerous exciting career opportunities, presented early-on in her career.

Georgia started her skilled career while in high school, completing vocational education and training in fabrication before starting a four-year mechanical fitting and turning apprenticeship, where she was paid to complete her qualification, as part of on-site training.

She started working for Axiom Precision Manufacturing in her third year of the apprenticeship, learning the fundamentals of defence industry manufacturing.

Following that, she transitioned into a role as Company Security Officer and now, in her current role, is also responsible for quality assurance.
