Veterans employed in NSW public sector eclipse target

Published 3rd May, 2017 in Economy

The NSW Government’s Veterans Employment Program has exceeded its target to employ 200 former Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel by 2019.

Just one year after the launch of the Veterans Employment Program, 310 former ADF service men and women have found employment in the NSW public sector.

About 70 per cent of the new employees have joined the justice and transport sectors, while others have been employed in the areas of health, education and finance.

Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott said the success of the program showed that military skills are highly transferable.

“The NSW Government is committed to listening to our contemporary veterans. This includes supporting them as they move from the ADF into civilian work. This program is also of great advantage to employers who reap the benefits of having these uniquely skilled workers,” Mr Elliott said.

Led by the NSW Veteran Affairs team, the program ran an education campaign across NSW public sector agencies to advise recruitment decision makers on the skills and attributes of former military personnel. Ex-servicemen and women are also supported in matching their skills and experience to NSW public sector grades and capabilities.
