Having served 10 years in the Australian Army as an Artilleryman, I decided to leave and pursue a career in the construction industry.

Initially l wanted to “simply get a job” however, after meeting with Veterans in Construction, they explained how the industry works and then secured me a carpentry apprenticeship on a major infrastructure project. I have found the transition from Army to Construction very smooth. Both industries plan and work on the same underlaying principles and just like the Defence Force, l have a wide variety of work tasks that l enjoy.

I cannot recommend Veterans in Construction highly enough. They understand the needs of Veterans, because they are veterans!
