Telecommunications Technician


Your role:
This is a career that doesn’t stand still. You’ll be at the forefront of your industry, operating cutting-edge technology as part of a team that is always looking towards the future. Without your work to set up the communications infrastructure, the Army is completely disconnected.

This role is a part of the Army’s advanced ICT team, the Signallers. Working together as a tight-knit team, they keep the Army connected and keep those connections protected. With plenty of training and support, you could make a real difference with your work.

Salary:
In the Army you'll get paid a good salary from day one regardless of your age, experience or qualifications; and your pay increases as you progress through training.

On completion of your initial military training and initial employment training, you could earn: $69,045 per annum plus generous super.

Life in the Army:
Action, adventure, exciting career opportunities and amazing mateship—there’s so much to love about life in the Army. Whether you’re looking to pick up a new skill, get qualified with fully paid training or are up for a new challenge, you’ll find it all in the Army.

Not to mention there’s also the sense of accomplishment and pride that comes from serving your country and providing support to communities in need, both here and overseas.

This is no ordinary job—but that’s exactly what you’re looking for. Enjoy a rewarding career, opportunities to travel, excellent fitness facilities, and free medical and dental; all in a dynamic and fulfilling work environment.
