Flexibility is key
We’ve found that flexibility is key for veteran-friendly organisations.
- Reservists look for organisations who provide flexibility and access to leave, allowing them to participate in Reservist activities.
- Partners of serving members are better able to support their spouse when working for a veteran-friendly organisation that understands and recognises the challenges they can experience at extremely short notice.
- Partners of serving members value organisations who encourage mobility. Mobility enables a more sustainable career with the same organisation where they continue to learn and maintain skills, work in an environment where they will receive support during posting cycles and find alternative roles or pursue flexible options when needed.
AVEC was founded in November 2017 to support the Prime Ministers Veteran Employment Program.
Founded by six leading Australian organisations, AVEC recognised their collective strength in offering a wide variety of opportunities, across numerous skill levels in almost all sectors and industries.
AVEC has a tiered membership model
1. Founding Members
2. Steering Committee Members
3. Bronze Members
AVEC Bronze members are Australian organisations who are veteran-friendly and committed to providing opportunities to transitioning service members, job-seeking veterans and their partners.
General membership requires an ongoing commitment to our jobs portal and active participation.
