Find the right role for you

The Veterans Employment Program has developed the NSW Government Rank to Grade Guide and a  companion guide that aligns ranks with Local Government jobs.

They can be used  as a starting point to your new career.  Remember to consider all your skills in the military and since as well as your work experience when using the guides. If you feel you meet a job's criteria submit a job application.   

Hiring managers can also use these guides to get an understanding of  how ADF skills and experience align with government roles.
