Defence jobs for ex-service personnel

Investing in the jobs of the future

What we’ll do

A Marshall Liberal Government will fund a Defence Industry Employment Program for Ex-Service Personnel.

Operating within the Defence Teaming Centre, the Program will recognise and promote the training, skills and experience of South Australia’s ex-service personnel and support and facilitate a pathway to employment within the defence industry.

The program will also assist with skills translation, job applications and resume development.

To further assist ex-service personnel to return to civilian employment we will also consider options to boost public sector employment opportunities, including ensuring those involved in recruitment are well informed about the unique skills and attributes ex-service personnel can contribute.

Why we’re doing it

Some 5,200 personnel leave the Australian Defence Force (ADF) each year for a range of reasons and they deserve our support in their return to civilian life.

One of the best ways to help their transition is to support their future work and career aspirations.

The Naval Shipbuilding Program to be centred in South Australia provides a significant opportunity to help ex-service personnel in their return to employment in civilian life.

The people who have served our country deserve our support.

That’s why we will enhance job opportunities for ex-service personnel.
