What is WYWM's Army Reserve Crisis Response Team?

WithYouWithMe has teamed up with the Australian Army to build an exciting new program connecting veterans back to the Army to help use some of the skills they’ve built since transitioning. 

Australia has recently seen an unprecedented number of natural disasters – from the NSW and Victoria bushfires, to the QLD floods and cyclones – and on many occasions the nation has turned to the Australian Army to assist the recovery. 

While the Army has a lot of expertise to assist, we know there is also a lot of experience and drive to help from veterans who are currently living in our community. 

That’s why WithYouWithMe has teamed up with the Australian Army to identify those veterans looking to use their new skills to help the nation in a time of need. 

It could be any useful skill from a chainsaw licence, all the way to more advanced crisis management training. 

If this sounds like you we’d love to hear from you.

Sign up for the WYWM Army Reserve Crisis Response Team.

The Army is looking to better support the community during times of crisis by better understanding what skills and abilities exist among its contingent workforce (Reserves and Veterans) at a local level.

The first step is to tell us what skills you have that could support your community in a natural disaster, pandemic or other crisis.  

What is the Army Contingent Workforce?

The Army Reserve Crisis Response Team forms part of the broader WYWM Army Contingent Workforce program. 

The Deputy Chief of Army Establishment Trial is operating to help Army become more agile and better utilise and recognise the valuable skills of Veterans and Reservists.

The Australian Army has teamed up with WithYouWithMe to help reconnect individuals who have gained new skills since they transitioned. If you are eligible as a reservist (SERCAT 2 or 3) but not currently active, this program could be perfect for you.

Army understands the huge potential of the untapped talent and skillsets of Veterans and the Contingent Workforce. There has never been a better time to reconnect with Army.

Army is seeking individuals who still want to contribute, possess valuable industry skills and are available for casual, part-time or even full-time employment opportunities. 

The Army Reserve Crisis Response Team forms a key part of the Contingent Workforce.
