How to Join

Your first step on the path to a uniquely fulfilling Submariner role is to get in touch by phone, online, or in person – or simply hit the Apply Now button.

Who Can Join?

Every Submariner role is open to anyone with the right character, qualities and education, regardless of background or gender – and height is not an issue. Check out individual job pages for the qualifications required, and here to find out what's involved:

1. Choose a job or have a chat

Apply Now (whether or not you have a job in mind), or browse the roles on offer.

If you'd prefer some guidance first, call 13 19 01 or visit your local Defence Force Recruiting Centre and we can put you in touch with a Submariner for an informal chat.

2. Come in and meet us

Once you've applied or registered your interest online, you'll be invited to a Your Opportunities Unlimited (YOU) Session to talk to one of our Career Coaches about the jobs available. At this informal session you’ll do some exercises that give us an idea of your reasoning and maths ability, and we’ll discuss your health and fitness.

3. Consider your options

By the end of the YOU Session you'll have a good idea of the jobs we feel you may be suited to. You can go away and have a think about your options, before being invited back for a more job-focused interview.
