If you've been selected to join the Army and want to develop your confidence, resilience and fitness before you start, the seven-week Indigenous Pre-Recruit Program might be for you. You'll get a taste of being on a military base and leave with the fitness and skills to begin your career.
If you’re motivated to join as soon as possible, we’ll work with you to find the next available Initial Military Training course so you can kick-start your career faster.
If serving in a specific location is a high priority due to reasons such as family commitments, Recruit to Area could be for you.
Wherever you are located for your job, you’ll be encouraged to work closely with your community.
Your application will be handled by a specialist Indigenous Career Coach who will guide you through the process. You will be introduced to them once you have completed your initial application.
Once in the Army you can access a range of support programs, including the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mentoring program. You will receive guidance from current serving ADF members, who will help you as you begin your career. This dedicated program will continue throughout your time in the Army.
The skills and knowledge you gain will be of great use in your community, which we encourage you to support through returning there. This gives you the opportunity to inspire others and provide mentorship.
