AVEC is proud to support the veteran community and are passionate about making meaningful change for transitioning service members, job-seeking veterans and their partners.

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.

Membership Structure

AVEC was founded in November 2017 to support the Prime Ministers Veteran Employment Program.
