What Veterans Bring To An Organisation

Skilled & Adaptable

Veterans are highly trained and educated. They have the proven ability to easily learn and adapt to new environments with identifiable and transferrable skills.

Veterans will quickly become an invaluable asset within your organisation and will enhance productivity.

Team Players

Veterans are taught from day one the importance of working as a team to achieve a common goal.

As an employer, you can rest assure they will be dedicated to attaining the goals set in place for them and to work collaboratively with others.

Thoughtful Leaders

Veterans are nurtured through their military career to be leaders.

The ADF trains veterans to lead through example and to support, inspire and mentor others.

They will show leadership and good governance throughout their tenure in your organisation.

High Performers

It’s no secret that veterans know how to perform under pressure.

They have the ability to stay level-headed under stress, take control and achieve strict deadlines.

When it comes to meeting, veterans will strive and lead for you during these periods.

Respectful & Honourable

Veterans are not only accountable, they are respectful of procedures and standards.

They are trustworthy, honest and accountable for their actions, they will provide you with confidence that they are doing their best by you and your organisation.

Case Study

Adam Nickoll is a retired veteran who Working Spirit helped find a job at MACA Mining as a dump truck driver.

Adam joined the ADF in 1986, first serving with Sydney’s 3RAR parachute battalion before later moving into clerical work. He worked for the ADF for 20 years before retiring.

After leaving the ADF, Adam struggled to find work in the civilian world and at his lowest point found himself out of work and out of money, living in a tent in bushland south-east of Perth.

He enrolled in several courses to qualify himself and applied for countless jobs. But none of the applications were successful, and soon all of his funds had dried up.

With the assistance of Working Spirit, Adam was able to find employment within only days. He has now been happily and successfully employed with MACA Mining for since October 2019.

MACA Mining has continued to use Working Spirit’s services to hire other dedicated and hard-working veterans.
