An exciting, well-paid and rewarding job is just the beginning. In the Army you'll enjoy many other benefits.
Medical and dental care
The good health of our people is a high priority in the Army, so we offer free healthcare services to all full-time serving members. This care is provided by highly trained doctors, dentists and nurses working in modern, well-equipped facilities.
Find flexibility in the way you can serve
People who join the full-time Army are commonly expected to work on a full-time basis. However the ADF has flexible work arrangements available such as the ability to work from home, work from another location or work outside your normal core hours.
With approval from Army and subject to service capability requirements, you may be able to work part-time to suit your current situation. Applications will only be considered after completion of recruit and Initial Employment Training, which will typically be several months after appointment/enlistment.
On base you will find gyms, courts, pools and other fitness facilities, along with teams you can join covering a variety of codes including netball, soccer, hockey, rugby and more. Many other activities are available through Army clubs, such as rock climbing, golf, water skiing, scuba diving and sailing.
