South Australia

The South Australian Veteran Employer Network brings together employers with a genuine interest and commitment to improving employment outcomes for veterans and their partners.

The network was established following discussions between Veterans SA and local employers of veterans who identified a need for a mechanism to connect like-minded employers, build relationships across organisations and promote the value of veteran/partner employment.

The objective of the network is to improve employment outcomes for veterans and defence/veteran partners in South Australia through networking, candidate sharing, and mentoring and guidance for other veteran employers.

Functions of the network include:

* Relationship Building – foster non-competitive, collaborative relationships amongst employers within the Network through participation in regular network meetings/events.
* Awareness and Education – promote a strengths-based approach to veteran employment to counter negative stereotypes within organisations/businesses, leadership, HR teams, the veteran community and the wider employment sector.
* Promoting Best Practice – mentor and support organisations and businesses seeking to employ and retain veterans, including best practice around recruitment, workplace support and defence/veteran cultural awareness.
* Candidate Sharing – with permission, sharing contact details for potential employees between members of the Network, to maximise the chances of successful employment outcomes.
