Get a taste of life in the ADF

APPLICATIONS for the highly successful Australian Defence Force (ADF) Gap Year program are now open for the 2016 intake.

Federal Member for Dawson George Christensen encouraged young people between the ages of 18 and 24, who wanted to experience life in the army, navy or air force, to seize this opportunity.

"The ADF Gap Year program will return in 2016 with more places available in the army and air force and, for the first time, places will also be available in the navy," Mr Christensen said.

"The expansion of the program means more young Australians will be able to experience life in the ADF where they will gain important professional and life skills, all while being paid a salary and

serving our great

country. "It's a great avenue for young people who might be considering a career in the ADF but are uncertain about a long-term commitment."

Applications for 2016 are open for two weeks from March 2-15, 2015.

To apply, head to http://www.defencejobs.gov.au, phone 13 19 01.
