Experience what it's like to work in the Army over 12 exciting months. No long-term commitments and no strings attached. Just one year of adventure with the Australian Army.
The Army is now offering a range of jobs with only one year of commitment required. You could be doing anything from organising military hardware, like Abrams Tanks and parachutes, to driving some of the most advanced transport vehicles in the world. There are a range of diverse and challenging roles available, so whatever direction you want to take, you'll find a one-year role that's right for you.
After your one year commitment, you can choose to continue your career in the Army or use the valuable skills you have learnt to secure a civilian job. Your role may accredit you with a recognised certificate, so you'll never feel locked into your Army position.
Over 12 life-changing months, you'll be paid to work in your chosen role. First, you'll complete basic training, including physical training, weapon handling, first aid and field craft. You'll then continue to learn on the job as you're immersed in the active Army lifestyle. Working on challenging projects with a close team, you will make friends you'll keep for life. What's more, you'll earn a competitive wage and unbeatable benefits like full medical cover, travel opportunities–you may even be eligible for rental assistance.Find the one year role that's right for you
