Boral Australia is the largest integrated construction materials and building products manufacturer and supplier across the full range of building and construction markets. Over the last twelve months Boral has established practices to increase the number of veterans joining the organisation and ensuring their transition from defence to civilian employment is well supported and successful.
The Veterans Initiative Project team is responsible for supporting, promoting and progressing veterans’ employment through targeted recruitment. In 2018 Boral piloted a program in NSW to recruit veterans into driver roles. The pilot established recruitment, onboarding and training processes to ensure a smooth transition for veterans into civilian employment. In 2019 the program will be expanded.
The Boral Defence Alumni also recognises veterans and their defence service, connects former serving personnel and reservists, provides a support and mentoring network and champions the recruitment of veterans transitioning to civilian employment.
