Military Rank to Grade Guide

The South Australian Government’s Military Rank to Grade Guide, which was announced by the Premier in May 2021, has been officially released and is now available online. 


The Military Rank to Grade Guide provides an official guide for South Australian government human resource personnel to help better understand how military ranks can be compared to public sector classifications.

Transitioning defence force personnel have identified challenges in translating their military skills and experiences into a civilian job recruitment context.  This guide will help ensure South Australian government managers and recruiters, without a clear understanding of military ranks, can better understand the skills and attributes one with military service can bring to the Public Sector.

The Rank to Grade Guide is available to download from the Office for the Commissioner for Public Sector Employment website.


We look forward to introducing further initiatives designed to assist Australian Defence Force veterans and Reservists and their families to connect with training and employment opportunities across South Australia.
