ADF members leaving the military will receive individual career coaching and an improved administrative experience as Defence implements changes to its transition services. Minister for Defence Personnel, The Hon Dan Tehan MP announced changes to transition services to further support ADF members and their families moving to civilian life.
From July 2017, ADF members will be offered tailored career coaching services during their transition and up to 12 months afterwards. ADF members will also have all appropriate documentation available by the time they leave Defence.
The changes are part of the Prime Minister’s Veterans’ Employment Program which aims to make it easier for businesses to recruit former Defence personnel and for industry to reap the benefits of their skills and professional expertise.
Members leaving, or contemplating leaving the military, should engage ADF Transition Support Services early so they understand their requirements and the services available. Families are encouraged to attend meetings with ADF Transition Support Services and information sessions.
