Transition Case studies
The two videos below discuss first hand the experience from two AeroPM employees who have only very recently transitioned from the Public Service.
Making the decision to transition
Everyones journey from the Public Service is driven by an individual and unique inflection point in their lives. Whether that inflection point is related to age, skill set, family, promotion or location, your transition does not have to be surrounded by trepidation or confusion. At AeroPM, as ex-serving members of Defence and the Defence Public Service we recognise the need for support mechanism, strong networks and mentoring throughout the transition process and the continued need for this support post-transition and into the far reaching future. At AeroPM, we will treat you like an individual rather than just a number throughout your transition process.
Applicability of your skills in the private sector
It is quite common for most members transitioning from the APS not to have updated their CV since joining the APS and we all know how hard it is to explain the extensive skill sets obtained as part of our careers in relation to operations, planning, time management, discipline, respect, leadership, delivery, communication and administration skills. As ex-serving members of Defence and the Defence Public Service, we recognise and appreciate the skills that you have acquired during your careers and consequently we ask that if you are looking for work with us, then please present us with your APS CV without civilian translation. Upon joining us at AeroPM, we will then help you shape your personal brand and value proposition in a manner that the clients will appreciate and that best reflects your capabilities.
Milestones and Expectations
There are a number of significant milestones that surround a members transition from the ASP from making the initial decision to transition, submitting of your transition paperwork, working through the transition guides, approaching and working through your last day in the APS, and then taking part in your very first day out of the APS. At AeroPM, our team are vividly aware of the feelings, requirements and needs of those that are transitioning and we assign mentors to each individual that we employ to assist in the transition process across all of these milestones. Most importantly, we work through what each individuals expectations are throughout the process and tailor our transition program to the needs of each individual.
What does a successful transition look like?
Success will look different to each individual transitioning from the APS. Our aim at AeroPM is to enable the smooth transition of APS members from their current employment situation and into the private sector by harnessing the members energy and giving them purpose through a structured program and focus on long-term success for a secure and enjoyable future for the member and their families. As an important part of this service, AeroPM has developed a consulting masterclass program to formally up-skill our workforce to become professional consultants.
AeroPM Professional Consulting Masterclass Program
Baselining the provision of services to our clients is something that we believe here at AeroPM is the most important function for a professional consulting service within the Defence sector. Our consultants have a wide breadth and extensive depth of experience gained from their times as members in the APS; and baselining their consulting skills through a dedicated series of masterclasses is a service that we provide to our workforce not only on induction into AeroPM, but on an ongoing basis throughout their tenure here with us. The masterclasses draw from the skills and experiences of our members through a program of progressive and escalating difficulty, leveraging practical case studies and tying them into academic-based models tailored for real-world application. The end-state is to transition APS members into industry leading professional consultants. We believe that the results speak for themselves!
