Veterans reskill for real estate

JLL is taking its commitment to support Australian veterans one step further.

In 2021, the commercial real estate services company became a signatory of the Prime Minister’s Veterans’ Employment Program. Now, they’re partnering with the not-for-profit Soldier On to support the recruitment of veterans to join the company.

JLL’s Work Dynamics managing director Ben Tindale noted that Australia’s veteran community consists of more than one million people, which is a significant talent pool on which companies can draw.

He explained that the program included training to “provide leaders with the skills they need to bridge the military-civilian knowledge gap and best support our JLL veterans in their career development”.

“At JLL, we pride ourselves on creating a diverse workplace that celebrates the unique backgrounds of our people, and we are proud to be recognised as a veteran-friendly employer,” Mr Tindale said.

JLL’s Work Dynamics defence lead Geoff Camp added that veterans’ unique experience is a benefit to any company.

“Veterans have an extensive range of skills, experience and qualifications that make them valuable members of the civilian workforce and we want to aid career transition and progression from these highly trained, organised, resilient leaders,” Mr Camp said.

Ivan Slavich, the chief executive of Soldier On, noted that the program was a great example of a way companies can “help veterans and their families to find and secure new employment and education pathways, enabling them to thrive”.
