This week marks a significant achievement for Ventia as we are formally acknowledged as a Veteran Employer of Choice by the Australian Government’s Department of Veterans’ Affairs.  

The Department’s Veteran Employment Program is a national initiative aimed at encouraging businesses to prioritise the employment of Veterans.

In undergoing the assessment process, Ventia proudly pledged its commitment to the cause by signing the Veteran Employment Commitment (VEC). By doing so, we publicly claim our dedication to providing opportunities for Australia’s Veterans and fostering an environment where their skills are valued and they can continue to excel in their career outside the military.


*(as of May 2024)

At Ventia, we recognise our people are at the heart of our success. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion has been repeatedly recognised, including most recently winning the Northern Territory Government’s Veteran Employer of the Year Award.

Ventia has further solidified its commitment to supporting Veterans this year by entering into a three-year partnership with Invictus Australia. Through this collaboration, we aim to empower military veterans and their families through sports, aligning with our broader diversity and inclusion strategy that prioritises the health, wellbeing, and engagement of our broader employee cohort.

John Rogers, Executive General Manager of Ventia's Defence team, shared “the wealth of knowledge that Veterans bring to the private sector is highly valued at Ventia. We seek to employ and utilise the skills they bring to our Defence clients and team”. 

Their deep understanding of the client and fantastic work ethic enhances our services and capabilities.

“This recognition of our Veteran, Reservist and Defence Family Member program fills us with immense pride. I extend my congratulations to the People and Capability Defence team, whose dedication has been instrumental in shaping and implementing our program."

Our status as a Veteran Employer of Choice, further strengthens our mission to providing meaningful employment opportunities for veterans and their families
