Defence Forces

The Defence Forces offer a broad range of careers to suit almost everybody.
The Army, Navy and Airforce all have positions both as Officers or as General Entry. Officer positions are generally more management focused, while General Entry positions tend to be more trade oriented. Each service has a range of technical and non-technical trades, such as mechanics, cooks and electricians.
The Defence Forces also offer a range of positions which do not offer further trade training and have minimal education requirements for entry.
