Veterans in Construction (VC) is a Victorian Government endorsed labour hire company providing a platform to enable veterans to gain employment in the construction industry and on some of Victoria’s major infrastructure projects. VC employs a diverse veteran workforce and then leases this capability to a Head Contractor.
VC is a self-performing and self-managing workforce based on a working environment similar to that experienced in the Australian Defence Force. Instead of helmets, fatigues and webbing, VC’s workforce wear hard hats, HI-VIS and tool belts. VC personnel have access to identified employment pathways, career development opportunities and progression into management and leadership roles.
The company’s HR policies and recruitment strategies have been designed by veterans, for veterans. As many of its personnel served on OPERATION SLIPPER, VC especially acknowledges the anniversaries of each of the 41 service personnel killed in action in this conflict and holds its own commemorative services on Anzac Day and Remembrance Day.
