After trying his hand at a couple of different career paths, Craig Gibson knew he wanted something more – something with a lot more variety and the chance to really grow and challenge his skills.

A conversation with a family member led him to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) recruitment website, and he has never looked back!

Now an experienced Administration Assistant with the ADF, Craig joins us to share the incredible variety and opportunities his role offers, including:

  • How Craig started his career and the steps that led him to a role in the ADF.
  • What a typical day might look like as an admin assistant, but how no two days are ever the same.
  • What Craig’s training to join the ADF involved and his enlistment journey.
  • A rundown of some of the super interesting and varied projects and tasks Craig might be involved with as part of his role.
  • How his role helps him grow and develop his existing and excellent new skills.

Craig’s passion for his work stands out, and we loved that the role allows him to travel not only all over Australia but to new countries, too – experiencing new team cultures and how other services work.
