Talent Community: Federal Government Contractors

Are you a Federal government contractor looking for your next role? 

Let’s talk. We can get you in front of some of the most highly regarded consultancies in Canberra.


The Elite Collective is not a job placement agency. 

We are the resume writers of choice for talented, career-driven individuals with niche skills, Defence backgrounds or government contracting experience. 


We’re constantly approached by employers seeking people and contractors seeking roles. 

As a group of ex-recruiters and HR professionals, we love professional matchmaking. 

So we created a solution to meet the needs of both. 

We’re picky about who we partner with, and we only refer contractors to consultancies that focus on best fit.

Each week, we receive opportunities across all levels and all disciplines, from program and project management services, through to engineering, ILS and commercial services. 

Your Next Opportunity, Found For You

Roles we’ve secured for our people include:

Why Join the Talent Community

Don’t waste your downtime taking calls from a dozen different places. Let us line you up with the opportunities we think you’ll like.

Sometimes, the best opportunities and job listings don’t get advertised publicly – they come to connected individuals and private communities, like ours.

If an opportunity we’ve found is a good fit for you, we can help you tell your story and present your unique strengths with the right documents.

This isn’t an automated, set-and-forget service. We don’t focus on volume. We manually approve each community member, and we carefully check each job listing so that you only see the right positions.

Need a specific document prepared so you can apply for a role? We can do that. Not sure what something in the job description means? Let us translate for you. We’ll make it as easy as possible to make your next career move.

Our Found For You service is small scale and highly personalised. We’ll never push you toward a role that’s not right for you, because we only want to match you up with opportunities that align with your skills, talents, and goals.

Here's How it Works

Fill out the form to send us your details. We manually check and approve your details (sometimes with a phone call) before we sign you up to our list.

You’ll get our regular email with current opportunities that fit your chosen areas of interest.
If an opportunity grabs your interest, you can reply to the email to let us know. We’ll set up a time to go through the details over the phone.
If you’d like to apply for an opportunity, we can help facilitate the next steps, and get you ready for the role.
“Hi Adriana, just wanted to update you that I have signed a contract! 
Thank you so much for the introduction. 
The foot in the door has been a gift in Canberra!
– Project Support Officer

It’s free to join our community, free to receive emails, and free to apply for roles. We get a finders’ fee (paid by the company that hires you) when we help successfully match a skilled contractor with the right opportunity. We also offer paid services (like resume writing), but they aren’t obligatory! If you do elect to have the team create a fresh resume for you, and we end up placing you in a Found For You role, we’ll refund you the cost of your resume.

We can’t guarantee that we’ll find your perfect job – there’s too much out of our control to promise that. But we can guarantee that you’ll always get high quality opportunities sent your way – and that we’ll do our best to support you if you choose to pursue them. Speaking of which: if you engage the Elite team to write your resume and we place you in a role, we promise to refund the cost of your resume. (We hope you’ll go out to dinner to celebrate your new career move, on us).

Yes! We manually check each role to ensure it’s a quality opportunity before we send it out to our community, and we only work with trusted partners. We also have great channels of communication so we can reach back for further information that might help you assess your suitability.

Right now, the Talent Community is specifically for federal government contractors. We manually check the details of every applicant to ensure they’re the right fit – this ensures that our roles are relevant for your background and qualifications.

Our regular schedule is once a week. Occasionally, you’ll hear from us a little more often or a little less often, because our focus is on connecting you with quality roles – not filling up your inbox. If you secure a role but you’d still like to stay in the community, you can update your email preferences to just receive our quarterly updates. That way, you can easily re-subscribe to get Found For You emails when you’re ready to find your next opportunity again.


Many of the roles are based in Canberra, as that`s where most Defence contracting and government roles are concentrated. But we receive and share opportunities from all over Australia.
