Soldier On welcomes Built as its newest Gold Pledge partner for 2021.
The Soldier On Pledge partnership provides a pathway for veterans and their families transitioning from the Australian Defence Force into civilian life.
The Pledge allows organisations to thank Australian Defence Force Personnel for their service and recognise the exemplary skills, leadership and training of those who have served Australia. Organisations that sign the Pledge commit to learning more about the skills and attributes that Defence personnel, veterans, and family members can bring to their organisation.
The newest signatory for 2021, Built, is a proudly Australian and privately owned diversified general contractor, with over 1000 employees nationally, and is one of Australia’s largest construction groups.
Upon signing the Pledge, Built General Manager ACT, Nadine O’Keeffe said they were thrilled to be able work closely with Soldier On to provide support to the veteran community.
“Supporting veterans and their families is something Built are very proud of. With both personal and community connections to serving and ex-serving Defence personnel, demonstrating our commitment via the Pledge signing is very important to us. As we partner with Soldier On, we look forward to providing and expanding our support, training and opportunities for veterans and their families.” Nadine said.
Soldier On CEO, Ivan Slavich said Soldier On is thrilled to have Built as its newest pledge partner in 2021.
“Soldier On’s Pathways Program is working in collaboration with companies like Built to enable veterans and their families to thrive. The more organisations that come on board by signing the Pledge and supporting the veteran community, the greater the impact. We are building a stronger Australia together – for every organisation that signs the Soldier On Pledge, we are one step further to enabling more veterans and their families to secure their future,” Ivan Said.
