The Prime Minister's Veterans' Employment Awards recognise businesses who employ and support Australian military veterans, as well as recognise veterans who are making a significant contribution to the workforce as an employee or entrepreneur.

The Awards are an initiative of the Prime Minister's Veterans' Employment Program.

Our winners and finalists are proud supporters of veterans employment or have demonstrated outstanding achievements since transitioning from the Australian Defence Force.

Each winner and finalist has a story to tell, so click on their profile to learn more about them.

The 2020 Awards nominations closed on Friday 25 October 2019.

"The Awards have given us a platform to highlight our incredible veterans. They truly make us better and we're honoured to be recognised."


Some of Australia’s highest profile organisations partner with the Veterans’ Employment Program to promote the value of veterans in the civilian workplace. Your organisation can show its support by sponsoring the annual Prime Minister’s Veterans’ Employment Awards.  This is a great opportunity to join Australia’s business and military leaders to recognise the achievements of organisations that support and employ veterans, and veterans who make a significant contribution to their workplace.

The Prime Minister’s Veterans’ Employment Program welcomes new sponsorship offers. Please contact us if your organisation would like to discuss a tailored sponsorship package.
