COVID-19 Update: Australians can still pursue challenging and rewarding careers in the Australian Defence Force. Defence Force Recruiting has reduced the requirement for in-person interactions during the recruiting process. You can now take part in virtual events and information sessions, online aptitude testing, and career coaching via the telephone. Australian Navy, Australian Army and Australian Air Force training establishments remain open and are operating in accordance with public health guidelines.


In the Australian Defence Force, you can enjoy a rewarding blend of career and lifestyle opportunities, job security and numerous benefits. You can choose from a range of careers and, if you’re already studying for a degree you might even be eligible to have your remaining fees paid for.
