As a military spouse, Carly and her family have travelled through 8 military postings over the past 12 years. This has made finding the right job extraordinarily challenging.
Carly previously worked in retail as a casual merchandiser and while the work arrangement allowed her to have a good balance between work and home life, it did not intellectually challenge her. She wanted to find work that was flexible, meaningful, and reliable.
After a recommendation to sign up to WithYouWithMe, Carly successfully completed the AWS Cloud Practitioner course and was offered a short work assignment with Accenture.
Following this foundational experience, she was offered an interview with defence technology powerhouse BAE Systems Australia. 

WithYouWithMe helped Carly complete further upskilling in Cyber Security and helpdesk analytics before she commenced the role at BAE Systems in February 2022.
She’s now the leader of a BAE Systems ‘Technology Squad’ and works as an Information Security Specialist. 
“The IT Security industry is dynamic, fast-paced, and has a wide range of practical applications. I really enjoy my work and love working with BAE Systems,” says Carly. “I’m motivated to exceed expectations in my position at BAE Systems and appreciate the value of learning current information security skills while keeping up with current technology developments.”

Carly has thrived in her role as BAE Systems Team Leader as it has given her the space to grow as a leader and mentor her squad as they collaborate on new projects, do their best work, and achieve goals. 

Carly's desire to be more present and available to her children is facilitated by the ability to work from home. Working remotely in the tech industry is versatile, because wherever or whenever she moves, she can continue working.
We are pleased to have Carly join the BAE Systems Australia team.
