Justin Walsh served in the Australian Regular Army for over 12 years as both an Enlisted Soldier and Commissioned Officer. Throughout his time in service, Justin fulfilled general combat support postings to both medium and heavy maintenance repair facilities across both Forces and Special Operations Command as an Electronics Technician. As a Commissioned Officer, Justin specialised as an Intelligence Corps Officer with postings in the Signals Intelligence domain.

After 12 years in the Australian Army, Justin felt there was a desire to pursue a new challenge outside of uniform whilst still contributing to Defence Industry. Inspired by the company motto, “From Country to Serve Country”, Justin engaged JY Australia’s Chief Operating Officer, Daniel Cooper, to get some advice about transitioning from Defence and was encouraged by the support offered by JY Australia. Leaning on the company’s Veteran Support Program, Justin felt that JY Australia was the best fit for him to transition out of the Army. He was pleased to hear that JY Australia is extensively invested in the development of employees through meaningful work, supporting professional development, but most importantly, joining another community post Defence.

Justin has furthered his education, recently completing his Graduate Certificate in Project Management along the way to a Masters of Business Administration.

Justin is keen to represent JY Australia in CASG while developing as a Project and Program Manager. It is an exciting time to be involved in the various domains of CASG, with numerous programs underway to deliver world-class capability for the Australian Defence Force. Justin looks forward to continuing down the technical project pathway with a focus on Electronic Warfare.
