Earn a salary that really stacks up
In addition to your salary you'll receive a variety of allowances, extra pay for relevant qualifications – plus 16.4% superannuation, a far higher rate than you're likely to find in the civilian world. Generous subsidies are also provided for accommodation and housing - both on and off base - and all members enjoy a comprehensive range of leave entitlements, including maternity leave.
