Your role:

Take on a dynamic 12-month role in the Army and experience what life could be like. It’s called the ADF Gap Year Program, but it isn’t just reserved for people that are straight out of school. It’s a unique opportunity where you’ll get the chance to try out a year in Defence, learning how to fulfil an office 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.

As an Administration Assistant, you’ll provide vital support that keeps Army personnel operating at peak capability. You’ll see what it’s like to be part of one of the largest logistics organisations in Australia, while gaining invaluable skills and training in office, admin and finance. Your jobs will include tasks like interpreting policy, providing clerical and admin advice, understanding pay and allowance procedures, and maintaining records.

If you’re someone that’s looking for a one-of-a-kind experience and is curious to see what life is like across different aspects of the Army—then this is an opportunity you wouldn’t want to miss.

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.

Not to mention there’s also the 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.


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.

Entry Requirements:

  • You must be aged between 18-24 years old by completion of military training; exact dates are dependent on each intake.
  • Australian Citizen at time of enlistment
  • Completion of Year 12 plus Year 10 passes in English and Mathematics

Medical and fitness guidelines also apply.
