We’re pleased to announce the successful completion of our Victorian RSL Veterans Employment Program Pilot, and subsequent long term strategic partnership with RSL Victoria.

Following a favorable independent audit verifying the success of the Program, we are moving into a long term partnership with the Victorian RSL, that will take lessons learnt from the Pilot, and continue to build on and deliver real employment outcomes for Veterans right across the State.

Audit’s aside, the real measure of success for our Program, has come from one Veteran’s comments after we secured his first long term job in many years. When asked how he viewed the opportunity to work with Ironside and RSL, he said, ‘if it wasn’t for this program, I would have been in a pine box by now.’

In conjunction with the Victorian RSL Program, we have been running a parallel program in Tasmania with equaled success and we have recently accepted our first Veteran through the New South Wales RSL and Defence Care.

Ironside Recruitment, remains committed to the notion of Employing Veterans and ex-Services people based on good business strategy and direction, not out of pity, and we’ll look forward to continuing our work with RSL, Mates4Mates and the Army’s Transition4Employment Program as we develop throughout 2016.
