Your role

The Army may march on its stomach but it runs on fuel. Every vehicle from 4WDs to tanks and helicopters needs fuel, oil and lubricants in the right quantity, at optimum quality, and in the right place.

As a Fuel Specialist you'll be in charge of managing, distributing and storing fuel products, as well as the refuelling itself. You'll work on military bases, on exercises and on deployments, so the job could take you across Australia and even overseas.

This rewarding role carries plenty of responsibility and variety. One day you could be in barracks, contaminant testing a batch of diesel, and the next could see you out bush beneath the spinning rotors of a Chinook helicopter carrying out a 'hot refuel'.

No experience is necessary as your training will arm you with the specialist and driving skills necessary. You'll also be taught how to operate effectively on your own initiative, as well as in a team environment.

Helping keep the Army mobile and fully capable delivers immense job satisfaction. Better still, you’ll be working for a dynamic national organisation that offers a great lifestyle plus opportunities and experiences you simply won’t find anywhere else.
