Employment services

Are you transitioning or have transitioned from a service agency, but aren’t too sure about your future career? Soldier On’s Program Officers can help you explore what your options are.

Whether you are interested in pursuing a career with a State or Federal Government agency, real estate, or business development, they can guide you through the job seeking process to ensure you gain meaningful employment where your skills, experience, and knowledge are valued and recognised.

The high tempo of operations and the superior level of training you have received whilst serving Australia in a national security capacity has given you many skills that are highly valued by employers and transferable to a variety of industries. These skills include but are not limited to leadership, communication and articulation of complex information, technical knowledge, analytical skills, problem solving, and teamwork.

“With Soldier On’s help I learnt that a single resume was not going to get the job that I wanted. I learnt that my resumes needed to be developed and constructed to suit the position I was applying for. Soldier On reviewed my resume and identified areas that were probably not suited to the civilian sector, such as skill sets, and was able to help me translate to ‘civilian’ terms…

But of all things that Soldier On did for me one thing stood out above all others, and that was Soldier On genuinely cared about my situation…”
