ADF resume writing services

Are you leaving the Australian Army, Air Force or Navy? Glide Outplacement provides affordable ADF resume writing services for all ADF services and ranks, and for every occupation.

No matter what your military background or future career direction, together we can develop a resume that effectively markets you. This will help you capture the attention of civilian employers and secure a job interview for your ideal non-Defence role.

With a head office in Brisbane, we have resume writers in locations across Australia including Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide and Perth.

Why use a resume writer for your civilian CV?

The job market is crowded. As well as job seekers with a non-military background, you are competing against former Defence personnel.

You need a CV that stands out from your competition. A professionally written resume, the first thing a potential employer or recruitment agency sees, will help get you selected for interviews.

ADF resume writing team

Our Defence to civilian resume writing services capture your career in a way that allows employers to see your potential outside of a military environment.

Our team has written resumes for ADF members from all areas. This has enabled our clients to transition to rewarding civilian careers in the private commercial and government sectors.

We will work with you to translate your experience, knowledge and skills into terms an employer will recognise and value such as leadership skills and team working abilities. Together we can write an effective CV that stands out among your competition and captures the attention of recruiters and potential employers.

Our team of professional resume writers are experts at:

  • What makes an interview-winning civilian CV.
  • Identifying the commercial value of key transferable skills.
  • Translating defence achievements into non-military terms.
  • Targeting resumes to a specific profession or industry.
  • Incorporating the latest recruitment trends such as recruitment scanning software.

ADF resume writing process

During an initial consultation we capture your personal details and future direction. This enables us to develop strong content, research the roles you are targeting and pinpoint your key achievements and transferable skills. We will write about your experience in terms that an employer can understand and appreciate. The resume writer will highlight your abilities and achievements to show the value you can bring to future roles and the positive impact you will have.

Typically the resume writing process includes:

  • Initial consultation.
  • Content development – around 3-5 business days.
  • First draft.
  • Review.
  • Edit.
  • Final version.
  • Formatted and provided in two versions.

Cover letters

A cover letter is your opportunity to make a positive first impression when you apply for a job. If written well it can show how your skills match the employer’s criteria. It can demonstrate how your defence experience translates to a civilian context. Additionally, it can describe how your personal attributes will add value to an organisation.

A cover letter that stands out from your completion will greatly increase your chances of making it to the job interview stage.

Glide Outplacement offers a cost-effective cover letter writing service. We offer both speculative and job specific letters to complement your CV and make a positive first impression.


Cover letters and resume writing services start from $99 (inc GST). To purchase, visit our resume writing services shop.
