Veterans Employment Program


Former Army Major Garth Callender, who has served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been appointed by the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet to spearhead a program which aims to find work in the public sector for at least 200 veterans within three years. The NSW Government Veterans’ Employment Program will offer practical guidance to military personnel who want to change careers and help identify government roles requiring skills associated with military rank. It also includes an education campaign to help employers better understand the unique skills and experience that veterans can offer an organisation.
