Tom Moore is an Australian military veteran and Co-founder of WithYouWithMe. Tom joined the Australian Defence Force in 2008 as an enlisted rifleman, then subsequently completed Officer training at Royal Military College Duntroon in 2012.
In 2013 he led a 60-man combat team as an Infantry Officer in Afghanistan. He was medically discharged in 2015. When Tom started seeking civilian employment, he found it difficult to secure even entry-level roles due to his perceived ‘lack of experience’. Tom discovered he wasn’t alone – and that veteran underemployment was a global issue.
In 2015, he co-founded WithYouWithMe to solve veteran underemployment, by lowering the barriers to entry into tech careers. WithYouWithMe created a technology that leverages innovative psychometric testing to identify people with the aptitude to thrive in tech-based roles who may otherwise be overlooked. It then builds their skills to be employment-ready through accredited digital skills training. The ‘social impact’ company he founded has rapidly expanded to support other under-represented groups, including neurodivergent individuals, indigenous communities and refugees.
Tom is also the Chairman of Mentor Connect, on the board of the Digital Skills Organisation and assists veterans to build their own businesses.
