Help us improve the Veterans Employment Program

Prime Minister's Veterans' Employment Awards

The Prime Minister's Veterans' Employment Awards recognise the achievements of organisations and individuals in creating employment opportunities for veterans and supporting their transition into the civilian workforce.

Celebrating veterans in the civilian workforce and the organisations that support them

We want to celebrate businesses of all types and sizes that employ and support veterans and spouses of current serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) members. We also want to celebrate and recognise the significant achievements being made by veterans in the workplace and veterans who've built on their ADF experience to start up or take on a successful business.

The Awards have given us a platform to highlight our incredible veterans. They truly make us better and we're honoured to be recognised.

Meet the judges

Nominations for the Prime Minister's Veterans' Employment Awards are evaluated by panels of independent judges who collectively bring a wealth of experience from the ADF, business and industry groups, and the public service. They're lead by Head Judge Sir Angus Houston AK, AFC (Ret'd).
