EDIT (Ex-Defence integration team) is a Veteran-Owned, Australian Not-For-Profit entity, providing employment, transition and integration solutions for ex-Defence members and families as part of a Veterans’ Employment Program.
Veterans (anyone who has served in the Australian Defence Forces) are extremely well trained to defend and protect our country, however they receive comparatively very little training to reintegrate back into civilian life.
The vision EDIT set out to achieve is to see more veterans in meaningful civilian employment and to break down the workplace cultural barriers to the commercial world through a quality transition course and also in educating organisations on how best to integrate a veteran into a non-military workplace.
EDIT trains individuals to competitively contend for, obtain and maintain rewarding employment that reflects their true market value. Having seen the positive benefits of how meaningful employment helps both psychologically and socially, and having also seen the opposite of what long-term unemployment can do, our tailored course and support services have been refined over the past 13 years to fill the gap.
The EDIT goals are to:
- reduce the number of unemployed ex-Defence members and their partners
- increase the commercial awareness of the benefits of hiring veterans
- Link exiting veterans to veteran-friendly employers
- assist in reducing the veteran suicide rate

Experience shows us that it takes longer than we think to secure a new job. It has also become significantly more competitive than prior to joining up. The sad reality for many veterans is they end up in a job that represents far less than their true market value. To short cut trial and error mistakes (that cost you time and money), and to realise your earning potential sooner, enroll now.
Find the new career you’re suited to, identify and understand how to demilitarise your military achievements, get a professional CV, have direct access to veteran-friendly employers and know how to promote yourself to competitively contend for commercial opportunities.
