Those who serve in the Australian Defence Force gain a wide range of skills and experience that are transferable to the civilian workforce: they’re proven leaders, loyal team members and adept problem-solvers. They also have access to world-class training, and obtain a number of VET qualifications during their service.
The annual Prime Minister’s Veterans Employment Awards celebrate businesses that recognise the value of veterans as employees and are dedicated to improving their employment outcomes. Nominations for the 2019 Awards are now open, and will recognise businesses of all sizes, industries and sectors that support veterans employment, as well as veterans who are excelling in their civilian careers as employees or entrepreneurs.
If your business, or one that you know, is benefiting from the skills of our highly-trained and capable veterans, submit a nomination before 29 November 2019!
Found out more about the Awards, including the stories of last year’s finalists and winners, on the Veterans Employment Program website.
