Your role

As a Driver, you’ll drive and manage high-performance army vehicles as combat support, by day and by night, on and off roads.

You’ll join a team that plays a pivotal role distributing critical supplies within the Army. Along with driving road transport, landing craft and amphibious vehicles, your job will include tasks like conducting vehicle inspections, camouflaging vehicles, loading and unloading vehicles, plus operating forklifts and cranes.

Take on a dynamic 12-month role in the Army and experience what life could be like in the Defence Force. It’s called the ADF Gap Year Program, but it isn’t just reserved for people that are straight out of school. In this unique opportunity, you’ll get the chance to try out a year within Defence, learning how to fulfil a driver role that’s unlike any other. You’ll get paid to travel and gain invaluable life and work experience, while making friendships that could last a lifetime.

If you get a kick out of high-performance vehicles – then this role could put you in the driver’s seat.

Life in the Army Gap Year Program

Action, adventure, exciting career opportunities and amazing mateship – the Army Gap Year Program is a one-year commitment that takes you out of the office and into barracks, training exercises and the field itself.

There’s also the unique sense of accomplishment and pride that comes from serving your country and providing support to communities in need, both here and overseas. Whether you decide to extend into a longer-term role in the Army, or not, you’ll get the chance to see if it’s a good fit for you.

Along with the highly purposeful work, you’ll be working in a supportive environment alongside highly skilled professionals to help guide you throughout the whole program.

Salary

During your 12-month role and on completion of training, you will receive a salary package starting from $66,544.
In addition to your salary, you will receive generous superannuation, housing subsidies and free medical and dental care.
