Professional job ready assistance for Defence partners

It can be challenging for families needing to relocate to a new location or posting for their partner's service, which is why we're here to help.

If you are a member of the ADF needing help with a demilitarised resume, you've come to the right place. We assist military personnel in making a smoother transition to civilian work life. 

 

And through the PEAP program, we also assist the partners of ADF members with a range of employment support services to help with applying for work when relocating. 

Whether you want two CVs to apply with for different roles, a few cover letters, numerous responses to key selection criteria, we can happily put together a package that's just right for you.

We'll get to know what kind of roles you want to apply for and how you would like your CV to market you. If you have an existing resume for us to work with then great, but if not, we can email you a questionnaire sheet to obtain the information we need to build your CV from scratch.

We also know that you may want to open your options up as to the type of work you can do. Therefore, we can prepare two different versions of your resume as well as multiple cover letters that are either general in nature or personalised for a particular role.

Some roles also ask for candidates to address a set of selection criteria. For many job seekers, this is daunting. The team at Client Centric are experts at writing high-quality and professional responses to selection criteria. We use the STAR (Situation, Task, Action and Resume) format when incorporating examples.

How to secure work after leaving the military

Leaving the Defence force and moving into employment in a civilian setting can be overwhelming for servicemen and servicewomen, and for a good reason.

Finding a job after serving in the military can be a challenging task for many. Challenges may arise in being able to write up a resume and cover letter that accurately highlights the relevant skills that you can transfer over.​We assist military personnel in making a smoother transition to civilian work life, in helping you to obtain work.

As a former soldier, you may feel that potential employers won’t understand the skills you have or how your experience is relevant and valuable to the employers’ company. Yes, there are duties that you may find unrelated to the labour market; however, you can make it clear what skills you acquired that are transferable from the Defence.

 

The many skills and qualities that an employer will find useful in hiring a former soldier include:

  • Excellent time management and organisational abilities.

  • Strong interpersonal skills.

  • Self-discipline and focus.

  • The ability to act and think with conciseness and focus.

  • Exceptional team working skills.

  • Specific technical/artistic and professional expertise and skills.

For individuals leaving the military and entering into the civilian workforce, it can be challenging for them to draw out their non-military skills and experience and make it relevant and suitable for a civilian job.

 

Having trade and professional, office/clerical type positions in the Defence does make it easier to transfer one’s skills over to a civilian job, as opposed to combatant type roles, such as a rifleman.

 

However, that’s where Client Centric can help. Our team know how to highlight the valuable transferrable skills that individuals gain from their experience in the Defence force.

 

Practical skills, such as:

 

-      Community engagement

-      Leadership

-      Team support

-      Machinery operation

-      Reporting

 

Trust in the team at ClientCentric to create for you a demilitarised resume.

 

Your new CV will help to market and promote your transferrable skills and experience to begin a new career in the civilian workforce.
