Agricultural jobs for Veterans
After serving in the military, the transition back to civilian life can be difficult. Looking for employment can be tough. Particularly for those who are wounded. Whether the wounds are physical or not quite so visible.
Our Agri Veterans Program helps veterans find stable, rewarding roles that match their existing skills and abilities. Many of the skills our veterans have learned during their service are an ideal fit for agriculture roles. Meanwhile, veterans who are easing back into civilian life find the wide-open plains and community spirit of regional Australia a soothing change of pace.
Our thriving community
The spirit of mateship behind Agri Veterans runs deep. Our vast social networks link veterans with fellow veterans, support networks and job opportunities. You can visit the Agri Veterans Facebook page here.
Since launch, Agri Veterans has placed more than 100 ex-Defence members into agriculture positions.
Word is spreading, with more veterans and interested employers getting in touch each day. Feedback from both sides has been excellent.
Agri Veterans family fund
Agri Veterans has partnered with Legacy Brisbane to form the Agri Veterans Family Fund.
For every veteran we place, funds are donated to families of fallen veterans. Legacy uses funds raised by the Agri Veterans Family Fund to assist through:
- Family Support Emergency assistance relief payments for Legacy families in distress
- Widow Support Emergency Assistance relief payments for Legacy widows in distress
- Education Support Payment of education expenses for Legacy Children
- Youth Scholarships Sponsorship of Legacy Children aged 15-21 to attend leadership development programs.
