Recruitment into the Defence Force

A new recruit? or a family member?

 

When it comes to learning about the Australian Defence Force, knowing where to start your research may seem daunting.  Both families and recruits have to build their strength and resilience.

For any person, the decision to join the Australian Department of Defence (ADF) will be the most important choice of his or her life. But that decision can be difficult to make without the support of family and friends.  

Joining the ADF is the opportunity for you or a loved one to be a part of something greater than a nine to five office job.   ADF personnel carry out orders with pride, and they are equipped to lead in any situation. 

 

You will likely have questions about your experience, or be a family member that wishes to understand your son or daughter’s day-to-day life.   Press on  the link below to learn more about service options, deployment, what experience will be obtained in recruitment or on an ADF base.
