The City of Newcastle (CN) has a dedicated program to support veterans to pursue a career in local government that the NSW Government has launched.

The CN Veterans Employment Program, developed in collaboration with the NSW Office for Veterans Affairs and United Services Union, provides dedicated advice and guidance to both veterans and employing managers about matching skill sets, supporting veterans through the recruitment process, as well as providing tailored feedback to ex-service personnel.

Resources include a detailed 'Rank to Grade Guide', aimed at helping veterans and hiring managers understand how Australian Defence Force skills and experience align with local government jobs, a dedicated guide to preparing job applications and resources to assist through the recruitment process.

Working at CN offers a great range of benefits. Visit our Employment Opportunities page for an updated list of positions currently available.
