Each year, around 6,000 Australians leave the Australian Defence Force.

ADF members leaving the military have an extensive range of skills, experience and qualifications that make them valuable members of the civilian workforce. 

Organisations who have employed veterans are reaping significant benefits from these highly trained, organised, resilient leaders. Consider veteran candidates when looking to hire new recruits.
