After serving in the Australian Defence Force for almost 8 years, I was able to re-train and transition to a new career with the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services as a Firefighter.

Veterans and
ex-Australian Defence Force members

We value the significant contribution veterans’ and ex-Australian Defence Force (ADF) members have made to make our state and country safe and protected.

We recognise that you possess some of the most well-regarded, diverse and sought after skills and experiences in the labour market today.

Coming from an environment with world-class learning and development, we know you are able to learn new skills and concepts, quickly and thoroughly. It is the depth and breadth of transferrable skills that make you attractive candidates to the Queensland public sector.

We’re committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workforce that brings together people with a wide range of skills, backgrounds and perspectives.

By joining our team, you will continue to be challenged and make a difference, each and every day, to people and communities of Queensland. We’ll also provide you with access to a total rewards package as part of your employment experience.

To help you stand out from the crowd, you can access resources to help you:

  • identify and apply for suitable employment opportunities within the sector
  • understand the sector’s recruitment process

The Veterans’ employment pathway aims to increase veteran and ex-ADF member participation and transition to Queensland public sector employment.
