ADF Defence career transition services

Are you leaving the Australian Defence Force? Glide Outplacement’s Defence career transition services support ADF members to move from a military career to civilian employment. 

Looking for a new job after the ADF can be a tough challenge. We can guide you towards a rewarding civilian career. With a head office in Brisbane, we have consultants across Australia including Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth and regional locations.

Take advantage of your Defence experience

Service personnel are highly valued by employers as they have a wealth of skills and experience. But it can be difficult to translate this into ‘civilian speak’ terminology a potential employer can understand. 

We can help you to determine what civilian employers are looking for and how your experience meets their needs. Discover strategies and practical tools to market your background and skills and achieve that new role.

Does your partner need help with their job search? We can support spouses with resume writing and career strategies to overcome the challenges of job change thanks to postings.
