  • reservists
  • people who experienced operational deployments and peacekeeping missions
  • people who served in peacetime
  • recognised partners of the above.

Flying high

After leaving the Air Force in 2011, Mel Risby decided to try a new career in real estate. She chose a Certificate IV in Real Estate through TAFE NSW for its qualifications, flexibility and industry specific skills.

A VET pathway was the starting point to my successful career progression from Real Estate Agent to now being a Business Development Manager for a national Construction and Property Development company.
