RSL Queensland has stood shoulder to shoulder with Queensland’s Defence family since 1916. It is the largest ex-service organisation in Queensland, providing practical support and assistance to current and former Defence members and their families. RSL Queensland provides a range of services including employment, scholarships, advocacy, accommodation, and wellbeing programs.
The RSL Queensland Employment Program includes a partner employment component, through which partners of serving and ex-serving members can obtain employment assistance and advice. In the 18 months since it was rolled out, the RSL employment program has helped 59 partners into employment, with 95 per cent remaining in employment six months later.
The employment team helps with career counselling; help interpreting selection criteria and writing CVs, application letters and LinkedIn profiles; interview coaching; help to identify training and development opportunities; and connection with potential employers.
