Making a difference

Meet one of the Defence Materiel Organisation's (DMO) newest up-and-comers.

Twenty-one-year-old Corey Wilson is passionate about politics and competitive dragon boat racing, and is a valued member of the DMO.

Mr Wilson graduated from the University of Tasmania in 2012, following studies at the Australian Maritime College.
He began with the DMO in the Australian Public Service Indigenous Cadet program in November 2013. The cadetship includes part-time study and a 12-month full-time work placement each year.

Throughout his rotations in the DMO, Mr Wilson has proved to be a valuable colleague and contributor to the organisation.

He has provided support wherever it has been needed, from work on the DMO Forums to assisting the Vice Chief of the Defence Force and the CEO DMO with the presentation of a Work Health and Safety Award.

In addition to studying a Diploma in Project Management this year, Mr Wilson has worked closely with DMO Strategy and Planning and the Materiel Audit and Risk Committee and contributed to the DMO Work Health and Safety Council. He is currently assisting with strategic analysis and benchmarking.

As an enthusiastic member of the Indigenous community, Mr Wilson shares his love of sport and athletics by coaching Indigenous youth sporting teams.

Proudly contributing to NAIDOC week events this year, he said he was honoured to be chosen as the ceremonial wreath layer during a reception at the Australian War Memorial.

Mr Wilson said he was looking forward to furthering his study and career within the DMO, and was excited to see what opportunities the coming year will bring.
