EDit (ex-Defence Integration Team)

Workplace Challenges

Your work ethics, professionalism and reliability are never in question.  What is in question is your ability to integrate into a non-Defence team, especially when your team mates:

  • Aren't trained the same as you,
  • Don't think outside the box like you, and
  • Attend work for different motivational reasons to you.

Not knowing how to tell an employer how much value to bring to their organisation ends in job seeker frustration, due to lost opportunities, or ending in an under-paid job that you dislike.

Competition for employment across private and public sectors intensifies as the population ages and young and astute job seekers enter the job market. To address this challenge and ensure our customers are highly competitive, we have strengthened relations with hundreds of employers and quality providers who appreciate the unique and diverse capabilities ex-Defence employees have to offer their industry and sector. This initiative ensures that all our customers receive the respect and attention they deserve whilst seeking employment suited to their lifestyle, capabilities and aspirations.

Remember Trans-Civ are not generalist recruiters who deal with the general public; we are specialists in Australian Defence career transition and have the appropriate expertise to ensure you get the best possible assistance in your transition to a new career.


The numbers on the right represent facts that are not widely known when Defence members transition to a civilian career.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, it also takes 3 months on average to change jobs once you start sending your CV/Resume to employers.

Our main point through this information is that it takes longer than we all think, it is more competitive than we all think, most ex-Defence members end up in a job that is far less than their true market value, but there are ways of making it easier, if you follow the guidance throughout this website.

  • Employers Choose Cultural Fit over Qualifications 67% 67%
  • Change jobs again 12 months after leaving Defence 85% 85%
