The Australian Defence Force is looking for new recruits.

If you are itching for an adventure or a new career, the Australian Defence Force is urging Bundaberg Region residents to look into their recruitment process.

While Coronavirus restrictions have limited tasks undertaken, an ADF spokesperson said job roles featuring a range of skill sets were still on offer.

“Australian Defence Force recruiters are normally face to face with the Australian community, visiting schools and hosting information sessions,” the spokesperson said.

“COVID-19 has put a stop to this, but it hasn’t put a stop to recruitment into the Navy, Army or Air Force.

“There are options for people with a broad range of skills and interests.”

Roles on offer:

The ADF spokesperson said jobseekers did not require experience or qualifications to pursue an ADF career.

“The ADF pays you while you train and you can earn industry-recognised qualifications,” the spokesperson said.
