The Veterans Employment Program has been created to effectively action and achieve the vision of the South Australian Premier of supporting any veteran that seeks a role within defence industry to find employment.

The South Australian Veterans employment program seeks to inform veterans about and connect them to employment opportunities within defence industry in South Australia. The objective is for them to secure employment in any company that delivers into Defence. South Australia has a large proportion of SMEs within its defence ecosystem with many seeking to increase the proportion of work they deliver to Defence. The skills and experience of our veteran community will provide significant advantages to businesses working in or seeking to work in the Defence Sector.

The South Australian Veterans program represents a collaboration between Industry, State Government, and employment agencies. The Defence Teaming Centre, Defence SA, Veterans SA have formed a partnership to effectively connect veterans to Industry with the assistance of employment agencies. Industry partners will be encouraged to focus on veterans as a valuable source of prospective employees.

The program will not only connect veterans to opportunities but also inform veterans of how their existing skills relate to the opportunities that exist. If a gap exists between existing and necessary skills the program will be a source of information as to how veterans can address these gaps.
