The Evolution of Employment Services for Veterans

Employment Services for Veterans

To help with employment services for veterans in Australia, Community Involvement Solutions (CIS) provides relief from poverty, economic disadvantage, and mental and emotional anguish and improves individual results through education. Working with Veteran and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, we build holistic programs that empower people to improve their circumstances.

Who are Veterans?

A veteran is someone who has served in the military and has left the ADF. A war veteran has directly participated in battle within war (although not all military conflicts, or areas in which armed combat took place, are necessarily referred to as wars).

Military veterans are distinct as a group because their occupation during deployment can differ greatly from those in the civilian workforce. Potential trauma, PTSD and other mental health illnesses can affect soldiers when they return home from combat. These can present challenges for military veterans trying to reintegrate into civilian society. Homelessness, suicide and long-term unemployment are all disproportionally higher for veterans than the general population. CIS’s goal is the prevention of all of these issues by helping Veterans obtain gainful employment.

The Veterans Employment Program is developed (VEP)

The NSW Office for Veterans Affairs researched how ADF employees’ skills and experience match those required for public sector positions to design the VEP. According to this comprehensive study, ADF skills and expertise are highly transferable to government workplaces across a broad range of areas. In the NSW Government, there are jobs for people with all levels of ability and experience, from entry-level to executive positions. The NSW Government is dedicated to leveraging this huge and highly talented recruitment pool, which sees about 1,200 persons leave the ADF annually.

How do we help?

Our diversified team specializes in assisting current and former Australian Defence Force members. Our services are intended to provide meaningful assistance to promote long-term positive change. We want to equip people with the tools they need to develop and improve their condition through education, mentorship, and counselling. We enable participants to seek assistance and assistance from others within their culture by tapping into established community networks. We take the time to listen, comprehend, and assist in co-create a fresh chapter for each person’s experience.

Our programs assist people in honing their skills and increasing their employability. We provide education, mentoring, counselling, qualifications, cultural support, skill development, and vocational training, among other services.

About Us:

Community Involvement Solutions, a registered charity, was created based on impact via collaboration. We don’t only assist individuals; we collaborate with communities to find long-term solutions to the underlying challenges that affect their members. Many of the issues people experience are directly related to their socioeconomic situation. Unemployment or underemployment can significantly negatively influence a person’s mental health, self-confidence, and capacity to sustain themselves and their society. We take a whole-person approach to social support, with the ultimate goal of finding meaningful and profitable work. We work one-on-one with clients to discover and deconstruct their blockages to achieve upward mobility, the cornerstone of self-fulfilment.

CIS assists in developing and strengthening existing support systems in the community through counselling, education, and mentorship programs. We can only heal, progress, and develop as a society if we facilitate productive partnerships at the local level.

Our Purpose:

Our major purpose is to alleviate poverty and mental and emotional pain for economically disadvantaged persons. Employment is an important aspect of life that gives financial and social rewards and opportunities for social integration. Those who can work can realise their full potential, help them recover from their circumstances, obtain acceptance and support from society, and find job happiness.
