Your role:

This isn't your average Electronics Technician job. You'll be on board advanced ships or submarines to operate, monitor and maintain advanced missile systems, navigational equipment, communication networks and more. If you identify any faults, it will be up to you to correct them and make sure things are running as they should. You'll also gain exposure to many different systems and machinery. These include:

  • RADAR systems and display,
  • Navigation aids,
  • Satellite equipment (GPS, SATCOM),
  • Weapons,
  • Among many others.

When you join, there's the option to specialise as an Electronics Technician Submariner. In this action-packed role, you'll get to travel the world onboard advanced submarines as part of a Navy force that's second to none.

It's a job full of excitement where no two days are ever the same.

Prior experience isn't needed for this role. You'll gain all the necessary skills and qualifications to become an Electronics Technician as part of your training. But if you've already got prior skills, it's also a great role to make the most of your existing qualification.

Life in the Navy:

You can expect to feel a unique sense of accomplishment and pride from serving and protecting our country and helping to keep our vast coastlines safe.

Life in the Navy is anything but mundane. You'll enjoy varied lifestyles, rewarding careers, opportunities to travel, and excellent social and fitness facilities, free medical and dental; all in a dynamic and fulfilling working environment.

Don't worry, it's not all life at sea—there's more to the Navy than ships, submarines and helicopters.

Some days, you might be exploring exciting new countries with your fellow crewmates. Other days, you could be stationed locally not too far from home.

Salary:

Be paid to train and learn the skills required to become a qualified Electronics Technician. Upon completion of your initial military and initial employment training, you'll enjoy a competitive starting salary package of up to: $99,600 for submariners and $81,494 for surface fleet, including service and uniform allowances, as well as a Maritime Allowance (if applicable).
