Become a Supportive Employer

Becoming a Supportive Employer means you become part of a group of organisations offering their support to our Reservists.

And our Reservists will thank you - whether they work for you now or hope to in future.

How you benefit

You don't have to employ a Reservist to become a Supportive Employer. But if you do sign up and employ a Reservist, we know you will support Reservists when they're called for service.

What you get:

  • A great employee who brings their Reservist skills to your workplace.
  • A free listing as a Supportive Employer online and in our publications for everyone to see.
  • If eligible, financial support when a Reservist you employ is called for service.
  • Opportunities for first-hand experiences of Reservist training in an Australian Defence Force environment.
  • Ongoing support from Defence Reserves Support State and Territory offices.
