Job Description

The successful candidate will be responsible for placing former Australian Defence Force personnel into jobs within the agriculture industry and actively promoting the Agri Veterans Program. Effectively utilising the current contact database and existing networks, you’ll represent the Agri Veterans Program by attending promotional events and identifying potential new initiatives.

Strategically aligning and building key relationships with other Defence organisations, you’ll be proactive in sourcing and advising on support networks for ex-Defence members and investigate wage assistance and relevant subsidies available to employers who hire ex-Defence staff.

Driven to connecting the right person with the right job, you will assist in the interview and selection process of ex-Defence members for various positions. Providing updates to the team, you will be required to complete reference checks and phone screening for candidates to assess their skills and alignment to roles.

Our business is busy! You’ll show us how you’re able to work to tight deadlines and have excellent time management and multi-tasking capabilities. You will have a strong understanding of the unique challenges that come with working in highly diverse and multicultural teams, ranging from blue collar to executive.

Confident and capable, as Agri Veterans Coordinator you must be self-motivated and keen to keep learning and developing with the role and the business. You must be organised and outgoing - a ‘people person’, with first class customer service skills and exceptional at maintaining effective relationships.
